Arizona hurting after loss to Cal 

Arizona lost a game, most likely its No. 1 ranking and perhaps one of its best players.

Talk about an awful trip to the Bay Area.

No. 1 for the past eight weeks, Arizona will likely fall out of the top spot and could be without forward Brandon Ashley for the rest of the season after a 60-58 loss to Cal on Saturday night.

“Our guys hung in there with great effort and togetherness,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said. “We came up short.”

Arizona (21-1, 8-1 Pac-12) went into the game on a school-record 21-game winning streak after holding off Stanford on Wednesday to start the two-game Northern California swing.

Few things went right for the Wildcats, but the worst news was the injury to Ashley.

Ashley injured his right foot grabbing a rebound in the opening minutes and didn’t return, spending the second half with a walking boot and crutches.

“It’s a foot injury. It looks to be broken,” Miller said after the game.
