Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Nick Johnson scored 20 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 14 and top-ranked Arizona rolled over Northern Arizona 77-44 on Monday night to complete its second straight undefeated non-conference season.

Arizona (13-0) played its second straight game without injured center Kaleb Tarczewski, but didn't really need him, grabbing control with a 27-4 first-half run.

The Wildcats dominated the small-program Lumberjacks defensively, holding them to 36 percent shooting while scoring 18 points off 23 turnovers. Arizona has won 27 straight non-conference games.

Brandon Ashley had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Wildcats, who don't play again until their Pac-12 opener against Washington State on Jan. 2.

Aaseem Dixon had nine points for Northern Arizona (3-8).
