Third-ranked Arizona pulls away for rout

TUCSON, Ariz. — Stanley Johnson and Gabe York each scored 18 points, and No. 3 Arizona blitzed Gardner-Webb during a 16-0 second-half run to roll over the Bulldogs 91-65 Tuesday night.

Arizona (7-0) needed to shake out the cobwebs after the holiday break and had to rally from a sluggish start with a big run to end the first half. The Wildcats again were flat to open the second half, but had an even bigger run in them, hitting 11 straight shots during an 18-2 stretch that put the game out of reach.

Arizona shot 56 percent and made 10 of 17 from 3-point range to extend its home-winning streak to 25 games.

No. 5 LOUISVILLE 64, No. 14 OHIO STATE 55: At Louisville, Ky., Terry Rozier made clutch jumpers down the stretch, including a big 3-pointer with 46 seconds remaining, to boost Louisville in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

The Cardinals (6-0) were in danger of blowing a 17-point halftime lead before Rozier made three straight baskets in the final minutes including the key shot from behind the arc to provide a 59-53 lead.

No. 6 TEXAS 63, TEXAS-ARLINGTON 53: At Austin, Texas, freshman Myles Turner scored 18 points to carry Texas in a lethargic tuneup before the Longhorns head to Kentucky to play the No. 1 Wildcats.

Texas, which beat defending national champion Connecticut on Saturday, struggled for long stretches and often got sloppy against the Mavericks, who lost by 48 to Kentucky last week.

No. 9 GONZAGA 76, SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA 57: At Spokane, Wash., Kyle Wiltjer scored 20 points as Gonzaga used a big second half.

Domantas Sabonis added 14 points and Kevin Pangos 12 for Gonzaga (7-0), which trailed after the first half.

No. 15 MIAMI 70, ILLINOIS 61: At Coral GAbles, Fla., freshman Deandre Burnett scored a season-high 19 points and Miami won a matchup of unbeatens in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Burnett had played in only three games previously, but he became the fourth player to lead the young Hurricanes in scoring this season. The 6-foot-2 guard added eight rebounds in 24 minutes.

No. 17 MICHIGAN 68, SYRACUSE 65: At Ann Arbor, Mich., Spike Albrecht rattled in a 3-pointer with 31 seconds remaining to put Michigan ahead.

Albrecht’s shot broke a 63-63 tie after Syracuse (5-2) had rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit.

No. 20 IOWA STATE 96, LAMAR 59: At Ames, Iowa, Matt Thomas scored 14 points and Georges Niang 13 for Iowa State.

Bryce Dejean Jones had 12 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and four steals for the Cyclones (4-1), who shook off a sluggish start with a game-deciding 16-0 run late in the first half.
