TEMPE, AZ (AP) -

Sophie Brunner scored a career-high 26 points and No. 18 Arizona State beat Arizona for the second time in three days, 71-54, on Saturday night for the Sun Devils' best start in program history.

Arizona State (15-1, 4-0 Pac-12) is also off to its best conference start since winning five straight in 2007-08.

Brunner, who reached the 20-point mark for the fourth time this season, played only eight minutes and scored six points in the first half because of two early fouls. The Sun Devils, who led by 30 points at halftime in an 88-41 victory on Thursday, were up just 31-28 on Saturday.

Brunner scored 10 points in a 19-6 run to open the second half to put the Sun Devils up by 16. The Wildcats didn't get closer than 14 after that and trailed by as many as 25.

Candice Warthen led Arizona (7-8, 0-4) with 13 points as the Cats lost by 17 points to their rivals just two night after losing by 47, the biggest win ever for the Sun Devils in their series against Arizona.
