(AP) — Nick Johnson had 14 points and Solomon Hill added 13 as Arizona rode a big first-half cushion to a 63-47 win over Clemson on Saturday.

Arizona (7-3) jumped on the Tigers early, building a 16-point lead by halftime and let up only a little, shooting 51 percent against one of the ACC's best defensive teams. The Wildcats played a little defense of their own, holding Clemson to 16 first-half points and 4 for 19 from 3-point range overall.

Hill added seven rebounds and six assists for Arizona, which has a week off before facing No. 23 Gonzaga on the road.

Clemson (4-4) got off to a miserable start offensively and never fully recovered, missing all nine of its 3-point shots in the first half while shooting 31 percent overall.

Andre Young led the Tigers with 17 points.
