Pac-12 basketball: Arizona escapes upset bid by visiting Stanford

Allonzo Trier scored 22 points, including 12 of 12 from the free-throw line, and No. 9 Arizona escaped with a 74-67 victory over Stanford on Wednesday night at Tucson.

Trier, who returned to the team six games ago, was making his first start of the season. 

Arizona’s Lauri Markkanen emerged from a three-game slump to make a three-pointer that gave the Wildcats the lead for good, 70-67, with 1:40 to go.

Arizona (22-3, 11-1 Pac-12) led most of the game but never by more than four points. 

Reid Travis led Stanford (12-12, 4-8) with 26 points. Arizona beat the Cardinal by 39 at Stanford on Jan. 1.
