Anderson's double-double powers No. 12 Wildcats to win in opener

TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Ryan Anderson had 18 points and 12 rebounds in his Arizona debut, lifting the 12th-ranked Wildcats to a season-opening 79-61 victory over Pacific on Friday night.
    
Arizona coach Sean Miller shuffled his lineup around all night in an effort to determine which combinations work well on this rejiggered team. No matter who the Wildcats had out there, they had no trouble against Pacific, building a 17-point lead by halftime.
    
Anderson, a transfer from Boston College, hit 5 of 8 shots and Gabe York had 13 points. Kadeem Allen added 13 points, five assists and four rebounds in his first game as the Wildcats' point guard.
    
Arizona extended its home winning streak to 39 straight games, including 25 straight in nonconference, and moved to 8-0 in season openers under Miller.
    
T.J. Wallace had 19 points and eight rebounds to lead Pacific, which shot 36 percent.
