Mark Lyons scored a season-high 25 points and led a key stretch in the second half, helping No. 7 Arizona hold off Stanford 73-66 Wednesday night on the 40th anniversary of the first game at the McKale Center. Playing in front of color-coordinated home crowd, Arizona (20-2, 9-2 Pac-12) came out flat and needed most of the first half to catch the Cardinal. The Wildcats stayed close in a back-and-forth second half until Lyons took over, leading them to their seventh straight win over Stanford. Solomon Hill added 23 points and Angelo Chol gave Arizona a lift with Grant Jerrett out, grabbing eight rebounds. Stanford (14-9, 5-5) dominated Arizona early and kept up with the Wildcats before fading under Arizona's defensive pressure in the closing minutes. Dwight Powell scored 18 of his 24 points in the second half and had 10 rebounds. Aaron Bright added 16 points for the Cardinal.
