TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Kobi Simmons scored 13 points, Rawle Alkins added 11 points and eight rebounds, and No. 19 Arizona outlasted Grand Canyon 64-54 on Wednesday night.
    
Arizona (9-2) started ragged, built a 16-point lead in the first half and allowed Grand Canyon to claw most of the way back due to a rash of turnovers.
    
The Wildcats had 19 turnovers overall and struggled shooting in the second half before wearing down the Antelopes for their 39th straight non-conference home win.
    
Grand Canyon (5-5) kept No. 11 Louisville within reach until late last week and did the same against Arizona.
    
DeWayne Russell had 19 points, but had to work for it against the physical Wildcats. He hit 8 of 21 shots, including 1 of 7 from 3-point range.
    
Oscar Frayer scored all 16 of his points in the second half for Grand Canyon.
