TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Derrick Williams had 17 points and nine rebounds, Jesse Perry added 16 points in his first career start and Arizona finished off its best nonconference season in a decade with an 82-56 win over Robert Morris on Wednesday night.
Arizona (11-2) blew open a tight game with a 19-4 run spanning halftime and hit nine 3-pointers against one of the nation's best perimeter defenses to win 11 nonconference games for the first time since 1999-2000.
Kyle Fogg added 11 points and the Wildcats can enjoy the holidays with eight days off before opening Pac-10 play at Oregon.
Robert Morris (4-7) had a tough night from long range--5 for 21--and trouble matching up with the Wildcats inside, leading to another loss in a season that's felt like one long road trip so far. The Colonials have lost four of five and still have four more road games before returning home.
