Arizona (26-2, 13-2 Pac-12) ran away from the Bears early in the rematch, using a big first-half run and good shooting (50 percent) all game to prevent the season sweep.

T.J. McConnell had 13 points and six assists, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson provided a lift off the bench with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Johnson also had seven rebounds and five assists after struggling the first game against the Bears.

Cobbs had 12 points for Cal (18-10, 9-6), which lost for the 17th time in 19 games at McKale Center.

No. 16 Michigan 77, Purdue 76, OT • In West Lafayette, Ind., Glenn Robinson III got a late bank shot to roll in as time expired in overtime for Michigan.

The shot capped a remarkable rally. Michigan (20-7, 12-3 Big Ten) trailed by as many as 19 points in the first half, 13 at halftime and never led until the opening basket of overtime.

Robinson, whose father was a star at Purdue, finished with 17 points while Nik Stauskas had 15.

No. 19 North Carolina 85, N.C. State 84, OT • In Raleigh, N.C., Marcus Paige hit a driving basket with 0.9 seconds left in overtime to cap a career night and help North Carolina to its 10th straight win.

Paige finished with 35 points — 31 after halftime — and seven 3-pointers for the Tar Heels (21-7, 11-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who needed every bit of that production to outlast the Wolfpack (17-11, 7-8)
