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.
Oregon State (13-10, 5-6) had little chance against the athletic Wildcats, unable to spring Roberto Nelson or chip away at Arizona’s 10-point halftime lead. Nelson, the Pac-12’s leading scorer, had 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting.
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.
C.J. Wilcox, the Pac 12’s second leading scorer who had 31 points, on 7-of-12 shooting from 3-point range, in the Huskies’ victory last month, was off target in the rematch. He finished with eight points on 2-of-10 shooting from the floor, including 0 for 7 from 3-point range.
