Tucson, AZ (Sports Network) - Mark Lyons scored 18 points and Solomon Hill added 17, as No. 9 Arizona rolled past instate foe Northern Arizona, 93-50.

Nick Johnson chipped in 10 points, seven assists and four steals for the Wildcats (4-0), who shot 12-of-21 from 3-point range and 58 percent overall to win its 29th straight meeting with the Lumberjacks.

"Our second half was really good," Arizona head coach Sean Miller said. "Our effort level was good across the board. We helped, recovered and did the things we need to do defensively."
