TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Gabe York scored 13 points and Dusan Ristic added 12, providing No. 7 Arizona an unexpected lift in a difficult 57-47 victory over UCLA on Saturday night.

Arizona (24-3, 11-2 Pac-12) was abysmal offensively to start both halves and allowed UCLA to rally from a 14-point halftime deficit.

Ristic and York helped Arizona out of its first-half funk, combining for 22 of Arizona's 32 points.

T.J. McConnell scored six of his 11 points in the final 1:14 to help the Wildcats seal it, stretching their home-winning streak to 36 games.

UCLA (16-12, 8-7) responded to a dismal first half with an almost-unheard-of run at McKale Center in the second, scoring the first 17 points to take the lead.

The Bruins wore down, though, unable to keep up after Tony Parker, Kevon Looney and Thomas Welsh fouled out.

Bryce Alford had 22 points and Norman Powell 11 for UCLA.
