Tucson, Ariz. • Aaron Gordon had 17 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 16 and No. 2 Arizona found its shooting touch in a 76-54 win over Oregon State on Sunday night.

After two weeks of struggles on offense, Arizona (23-1, 10-1 Pac-12) finally found some answers in its second game without injured forward Brandon Ashley. The Wildcats took control with a big run to end the first half and kept the Beavers from mounting a rally by shooting 50 percent.

Colorado 91, Washington 65 • In Boulder, Colo., Xavier Johnson scored a career-high 27 points, tops among three Colorado players with at least 20 points, as the Buffaloes routed Washington.
