LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Trevon Hughes scored 24 points and Keaton Nankivil had a pair of crucial dunks in the final 90 seconds to lead Wisconsin to a 65-61 win over Arizona in the first round of the Maui Invitational on Monday night.

Wisconsin (3-0) broke away from a 55-55 tie in the final 2 1/2 minutes, starting with a pair of free throws from Hughes with 2:02 to play.

Nankivil made it a four-point Wisconsin lead with a dunk.

Arizona (2-1) drew within one when Jamelle Horne made a 3-pointer with 1:01 left.

Hughes then drove the lane, but his layup bounced off the front rim, and Nankivil drove the rebound home on a dunk to make it 61-58 with 25 seconds remaining.

After two free throws by Jason Bohannon, Horne made another 3 to draw Arizona within 63-61 with 8 seconds left.

Wisconsin got one free throw each from Nankivil and Hughes to put the game away.
