Brandon Randolph had a game-high 20 points on five of five shooting from beyond the arc as Arizona easily defeated the Division 2 Mustangs 95-44.

The Wildcats went on a 24-0 run after WNMU scored the first basket. Arizona played without Chase Jeter, who missed the game due to an unspecified injury.

"I was pleased with our effort," said head coach Sean Miller. "Our guys played together. At this time of year, playing with effort and playing unselfish is at the top of the list."

Freshman Brandon Williams added fourteen points, four rebounds, and three assists.

Before the game, the Wildcats announced that sophomore Ira Lee would be suspended for the season opener against Houston Baptist for a code of conduct violation. Lee had an extreme DUI over the offseason.

Arizona hosts Chaminade on Sunday in its final exhibition game.
