Big game Gordon

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - 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.

T.J. McConnell had 11 points, six rebounds and six assists for Arizona, which has won 30 of its past 31 against Oregon State at McKale Center.

After rallying against Arizona State in its previous game, 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.
