PJC leads Arizona over Northern Colorado

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Lauri Markannen scored 17 points, Parker Jackson-Cartwright had 15 points and a career-high 11 assists and No. 9 Arizona pulled away over the final 12 ½ minutes to beat Northern Arizona 71-55 on Monday night.
    
Kadeem Allen added 10 for the Wildcats (4-0).
    
Gerard Davis scored 20 for the Bears (1-3).  Chaz Glotta, a transfer from Southern Illinois, made 5 of 11 3-pointers for 15 points.
    
Jackson-Cartwright, whose previous career best was five assists, committed just one turnover. He had none in the previous game against Sacred Heart.
    
The Wildcats outscored the Bears 34-16 over the final 12:15.
    
But most of the night, Northern Colorado - picked by coaches and the media to finish near the botton of the Big Sky Conference - gave the Wildcats all they could handle.
