No. 13 Wildcats axe the Jacks

TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Mark Tollefesen scored 19 points, Ryan Anderson had 18 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 13 Arizona overwhelmed Northern Arizona 92-37 Wednesday night.

FIRST THOUGHTS FROM SEAN MILLER
    
Arizona (10-1) labored early on offense as it struggled to work the ball around for open shots. Once the Wildcats started sharing, they turned the game between in-state rivals into the expected rout.
    
Arizona had a 50-14 advantage in the paint, 24 more rebounds and opened the second half with a 34-6 run to stretch the nation's longest home winning streak to 45 games.
    
Allonzo Trier added 11 points for the Wildcats, who shot 57 percent.
    
Northern Arizona (2-7) had a hard time with Arizona's length and athleticism, opening each half with long scoring droughts. The Lumberjacks shot 22 percent, including 4 of 17 from 3-point range, and were held to 13 points in the second half.
    
Kris Yanku had 12 points to lead Northern Arizona.
