TUCSON, Arizona (Ticker) -- Fifth-ranked Arizona finally had the luxury of not needing a comeback.
Hassan Adams scored 19 points and 11 rebounds and Chris Rodgers added 17 points as the Wildcats cruised to an 83-71 victory over San Diego State.
Arizona was forced to rally in its previous two games, overcoming a nine-point deficit against St. Mary's on Wednesday. The Wildcats improved to 4-0 at home against the Aztecs, who never led after the opening minutes.
Arizona (6-1) scored nine of the final 11 points in the first half, including five by Rodgers, who buried a jumper with three seconds left for a 41-31 halftime cushion.
"Chris Rogers was the most consistent of the perimeter guys," Arizona coach Lute Olson said. "He's as consistent a shooter as we have."
The Aztecs got no closer in the second half as the Wildcats shot 52 percent (30-of-66) from the floor and made 9-of-11 free throws.
"If you don't make a shot, (Arizona) is going to be running right down your nose, and they just ran us right out of it," San Diego State coach Steve Fisher said. "They're extremely difficult to defend. They have four guys that can move, shoot and cut, and when you have that, they're extremely hard to guard."
Andre Iguodala had 10 points and 12 rebounds and Channing Frye added 15 and nine as the Wildcats nearly had three players post double-doubles.
"I was really upset about that," Frye said. "I feel I let my team down by not getting that one more rebound. Andre and Hassan were getting so many, I should have been able to get one more."
Salim Stoudamire and Mustafa Shakur scored nine points apiece for shorthanded Arizona, which was without forwards Isaiah Fox (knee) and Ivan Radenovic (ineligible).
Aerick Sanders scored 16 of his 24 points in the first half and Brandon Heath had 15 for San Diego State (7-4), which has lost 17 of 23 meetings with Arizona.
