TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Aaron Gordon, almost certainly playing his final home game of a one-and-done freshman season, scored 19 points and grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds to help No. 3 Arizona clinch the Pac-12 regular-season title with a 79-66 victory over Stanford on Sunday night.

The Wildcats (27-2, 14-2), who won by just three at Stanford a month ago, completed an unbeaten home season in what also could have been the final McKale Center game for two other players: junior Nick Johnson and freshman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

T.J. McConnell scored 14 points, Gabe York 12, Johnson 11 and Kaleb Tarczewski 10 for Arizona.

Josh Huestis matched his career high with 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for Stanford (18-10, 9-7).

No. 8 VILLANOVA 73, MARQUETTE 56

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Darrun Hilliard scored a career-high 26 points and Villanova set a school record for regular-season wins by beating Marquette.

Josh Hart added 13 points and JayVaughn Pinkston had 11 points and seven rebounds for the Wildcats (26-3, 14-2 Big East), which has won four straight and 10 of 11.

The Wildcats had never won 26 regular-season games in the 95-year history of the program. Villanova won 25 games four previous times, most recently in 2008-09, a season it reached the Final Four.

Deonte Burton scored 13 points for Marquette (17-12, 9-7) and Todd Mayo finished with 11 points and five rebounds.

Hilliard, who had 18 points in first half, had his previous career high of 25 points in an upset win over Syracuse last season.

Villanova finished 12 of 29 from the field while Marquette was 4 for 15.

No. 14 WISCONSIN 71, PENN ST. 66

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Josh Gasser scored 15 points to lead a balanced Wisconsin offense and the Badgers won their seventh straight.

Wisconsin (24-5, 11-5 Big Ten) moved into a tie with Michigan State for second place in the conference standings as Ben Brust scored 14 points and Traevon Jackson, who made four clutch free throws down the stretch, added 13.

D.J. Newbill had 23 points for Penn State (14-15, 5-11), which dropped to 2-5 against ranked teams this season. The redshirt junior became Penn State’s 31st career 1,000-point scorer. He leads the Big Ten this season with 178 field goals.
