TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Nick Johnson had 17 points, Aaron Gordon added 16 and top-ranked Arizona jumped on rival Arizona State early in a 91-68 rout Thursday night.

Arizona (18-0, 5-0 Pac-12) raced out to a 21-point lead in the first half and didn't let up, extending the best start in school history with a flurry of dunks and 3-pointers.

Kaleb Tarczewski had 12 points and eight rebounds, and T.J. McConnell added 10 points and six assists for Arizona.
