TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Dusan Ristic scored a career-high 20 points, Ryan Anderson had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and No. 13 Arizona outlasted UNLV 82-70 on Saturday night.
Arizona (11-1) played superbly on offense all night, shooting 52 percent, and built a 12-point lead behind its defense in the second half.
UNLV (8-4) made a late push, pulling within four with just over 2 minutes left, but Gabe York and Allonzo Trier each scored in transition to put Arizona back in control.
Trier and Kadeem Allen had 15 points each to help the Wildcats extend the nation's longest home winning streak to 46 games.
UNLV had a hard time defending the Wildcats or keeping them off the glass with freshman center Stephen Zimmerman limited to nine minutes due to a left thigh contusion.
