TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Freshman Andre Iguodala scored 15 points and No. 1 Arizona held Team Nike without a field goal for more than five minutes in the first half in a 100-83 exhibition victory Wednesday night.
Coach Lute Olson complained about the Wildcats' fullcourt pressure defense earlier this week. The problems appeared corrected as Arizona went on a 24-1 run in the first half as Team Nike went 0-for-8 from the field during the five-minute stretch and had 19 of its 26 turnovers by halftime.
Dave Ferguson had 22 points for Team Nike.
Dedric Willoughby's offensive rebound with 8:47 left in the opening half trimmed Arizona's lead to 23-22. Will Bynum then had 11 points, including three 3-pointers, in the run over a 5:07 span that made it 47-23.
Arizona shot 64 percent in taking a 55-32 halftime lead.
Arizona's biggest lead was 83-52 on a jumper by Dennis Latimore with about 11 minutes to play.
