After finishing with eight points and five rebounds in a win at Arizona State in his first game back from a seven-game absence due to an ankle injury, Arizona senior center Kaleb Tarczewski has posted in double-double in each of the last three games. Thursday night he racked up 16 points and 13 rebounds against a young Washington squad that gave the Wildcats a good fight for about 27 minutes at McKale Center.

But that was about all the foul-plagued Huskies had for Arizona, which went on to win 99-67. And it was Tarczewski who added the exclamation point, as he received a nice pass from guard Kadeem Allen and threw down a two-handed dunk on Washington freshman Marquese Chriss.

Two other problems in this sequence for the freshman: Allen’s crossover dribble, and he picked up his fifth foul attempting to block Tarczewski’s dunk.
