LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Nick Johnson scored 18 points to lead No. 9 Arizona to an 85-57 win over Texas Tech on Saturday night.

Solomon Hill and Mark Lyons each added 14 points for Arizona. Kaleb Tarczewski pulled down 13 rebounds for the Wildcats (5-0).

Jaye Crockett scored 12 points to lead Texas Tech (4-1).

The Wildcats pulled down 41 rebounds to the Red Raiders 26, and got 16 second-chance points. They also got 21 points off 16 Texas Tech turnovers. The Red Raiders fell well below their per-game point average. They came in averaging 88.8 points in each of their wins.

Trailing 53-30, the Red Raiders used a 12-2 run, including a 3-pointer by Daylen Robinson and field goals by Jamal Williams, Jr. and Toddrick Gotcher to pull within 13 with about 13 minutes remaining in the game. But they couldn't whittle the deficit any more down the stretch.

The Wildcats answered with a 22-3 run, including a dunk by Johnson, two free throws by Lyons, a field goal by Hill and a 3-pointer by Grant Jerrett, to go up 77-45 with about five minutes remaining to seal the victory.

Arizona led 45-28 at the half. Texas Tech's first-half points were a season low.

The Wildcats hit five of six 3s during one stretch in the first half ot go ahead 30-18. Hill and Loyns each hit two and Johnson had one during the spurt.

Tech got a quirky score in the first half after Tarczewski grabbed a rebound beneath the Red Raiders bucket. Dejan Kravic knocked it out of his hands and the ball went up in the air and into the basket for a Texas Tech score.
