TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Stanley Johnson scored 22 points, Kaleb Tarczewski added 14 and No. 10 Arizona pulled away for a 68-54 victory over short-handed Colorado on Thursday night.

Arizona (15-2, 3-1 Pac-12) struggled offensively at times without injured guard Gabe York and had a hard time containing Askia Booker after losing to Oregon State in its last game.

The Wildcats pulled out their 31st straight home win by dominating inside, outscoring Colorado by 16 in the paint while grabbing 15 more rebounds.

Booker had a career-high 30 points on 11-of-17 shooting, including 6 of 9 from 3-point range. That helped the Buffaloes (9-7, 2-2) keep it close early despite playing without Josh Scott (back) and Xavier Johnson (ankle), their second and third-leading scorers.

No one else scored more than eight points, though, leaving Colorado winless on the road (0-5).
