TUCSON (AP)-No. 10 Arizona got perfect shooting from Hassan Adams in the first half and had a hot hand from Chris Rodgers in the second for a

104-81 victory over Team Georgia in an exhibition game on Wednesday.

Adams made his first eight field goal attempts, including all seven at halftime, to help give the Wildcats a 57-30 lead at the intermission. He finished with 18 points, but missed his last five shots Rodgers took over in the second half, making a pair of three pointers and getting a lay-up after his steal to put the Wildcats ahead 70-40 lead with 16:36 remaining. He ended with 22 points.

Arizona also got 15 points from Marcus Williams. Team Georgia was led by the 17 points from Adrian Jones.

It was the Wildcats' last warm-up game before playing Kansas in a first round game at the EA Sports Maui Invitational on Nov. 21.

Team Georgia started bombing away from three-point range late in the second half, making eight after halftime. Jarico Strothers connected on back-to-back three's to close what was a 30-point lead to within 82-67 with 7:08 left.

After Arizona's Isaiah Fox made a short jumper, Drayl Cooper swished another three to cut the lead to 14 points with 6:26 remaining.

Rodgers' three-pointer on the next possession helped Arizona hold off Team Georgia from getting any closer. Rodgers added his fifth three-pointer of the game moments later to put the game away.

Adams, playing only 10 minutes in the first half, was perfect from the field to score 16 of his points, with his final bucket coming on a baseline driving lay-in that led to a 40-18 lead with 6:28 remaining in the first half.
