TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Gabe York scored 18 points, and No. 12 Arizona beat undermanned Northwestern State 61-42 on Sunday night.
Allonzo Trier added 10 points for the Wildcats, who overcame a subpar shooting effort to extend the nation's longest active home winning streak to 42 games. They also moved to 4-0 for the sixth straight season.
York hit two 3-pointers, a nifty layup in traffic and two free throws in a 12-4 run that put Arizona ahead 54-36 with 5 minutes left.
Zeek Woodley had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Demons (0-4), who have struggled offensively since losing senior point guard Jalan West to a season-ending knee injury.
Trier started in place of forward Ryan Anderson, who sat as a precaution after tweaking his right ankle Thursday against Boise State.
