CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Mark Lyons scored a season-high 20 points and No. 8 Arizona used a late second-half run to improve to 7-0 for the first time in 14 years with a 66-54 victory over Clemson on Saturday night.
The Wildcats squandered a 14-point lead and were down 42-36 after Rod Hall's 3-pointer with 12:07 remaining.
That's when Arizona got moving with a 25-7 run that put the game away. Solomon Hill and Lyons began the charge with two free throws each.
Brandon Ashley's layup tied the game moments later. Lyons then found a wide-open Kaleb Tarczewski for a layup that put the Wildcats ahead to stay.
When Lyons went in for a layup with 2:19 remaining, the Wildcats were ahead 61-49.
Clemson (5-3) scored just two field goals in the final 8:45. Milton Jennings led the Tigers with 15 points in his return from a two-game suspension because of a drug arrest.
