Tucson, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Gabe York led a balanced attack with 20 points as No. 5 Arizona dominated Fairleigh Dickinson, 100-50, in the opening round of the NIT Season Tip-Off at the McKale Center.

Nick Johnson had 16 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson gave 13 points and seven boards and Brandon Ashley added 11 points and eight rebounds for the Wildcats (4-0), who will play Rhode Island, which defeated Metropolitan State, on Tuesday.

Aaron Gordon had 10 points and 10 rebounds and Kaleb Tarczewski scored 10 points with eight boards for Arizona, which shot 54.4 percent in the game.

Arizona head coach Sean Miller won his 100th game with the team, the fifth Arizona coach to reach that mark.

"To play a game with only five turnovers is outstanding," Miller said. "We made great decisions. That's a great sign early in the year."

Sidney Sanders had 16 points for the Knights (1-3), who have lost three straight since opening the season with a win over Caldwell on Nov. 8.

Arizona scored the first six points of the game as it never trailed in the contest.

The Knights kept it close over the first five minutes and tied the game at 10- all five minutes in on a Sanders layup, but Ashley followed that a bit later with a layup that kicked off an 18-3 run capped on a Gordon free throw for a 28-13 lead with 7 1/2 minutes left.

Arizona closed the half on an 18-5 run to take a 51-24 lead into the break.

A 9-0 burst to start the second half by Arizona kept Fairleigh Dickinson from entertaining any thoughts of a comeback.
