Derrick Williams scored 27 points and had a career-high 14 rebounds, as Arizona defeated New Mexico State 83-57 on Thursday.
With Lamont Jones and Kyle Fogg struggling, UA received eight points from Brendon Lavender, five points and one assist from Jordin Mayes and five points and six rebounds from Kevin Parrom.
The game started out close, but Sean Miller sent a message to the starters by replacing them with a new five and that started an Arizona run.
Jordin Mayes, Jesse Perry, Kyryl Natyazhko, Lavender and Parrom outscored NMSU 12-0 over the next three minutes.
Arizona will now play Northern Colorado on Sunday.
