There's a bit of a logjam at the top of the Pac-12 standings, and it comes at a tough time for the Arizona Wildcats. They're supposed to stay afloat this weekend, starting in tonight's game against the Washington State Cougars.

Between it being a hectic travel schedule and playing in two tough environments against the Cougars in Pullman, Wash., and then in Seattle against the Washington Huskies, the Wildcats have a test on their hands for sure. To come out victorious in the first game of the weekend, the Wildcats will need to shut down 6-foot-10, 230 pound forward Brock Motum, who's the second-leading scorer in the conference at 17.4 points per game.

Obviously, that's an issue with an undersized front line. Motum is averaging about 20 points in Pac-12 play, and while the record for Wazzou stands near .500, he's partially making up for the loss of Klay Thompson and DeAngelo Casto from a year ago.

Looking to build on a four-game winning streak could have Arizona in position to drop Pac-12 co-leader Washington in two days. Jordin Mayes is traveling with the Wildcats and remains questionable, and that could help ease any situations of fatigue
