STANFORD, CA (AP) -

Nick Johnson kept Arizona's perfect season going for another game, hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with 51 seconds left and a pair of free throws with 5.8 seconds to go as the top-ranked Wildcats survived for a 60-57 victory over Stanford on Wednesday night for their school-record 21st straight win.
    
After Johnson hit a jumper in the middle of the key with 2:36 remaining to make it 55-53, Dwight Powell answered on a baseline drive with 1:21 to go before Johnson delivered once more.
    
Johnson finished with 16 points, five rebounds and four assists and T.J. McConnell added 11 points, eight rebounds and four assists for Arizona (21-0, 8-0 Pac-12), off to the program's best start in conference play in more than a decade.
    
Arizona is one of three unbeaten teams left in Division I basketball.
    
Powell had 13 points for Stanford (13-7, 4-4).
