Azuolas Tubelis scores career-high 40, one shy of McKale Center record, in revenge win over Oregon

To all Pac-12 Player of the Year voters: Azuolas Tubelis just made your decision a lot easier.

Tubelis scored a career-high 40 points, one off the McKale Center record for an Arizona player, and the fifth-ranked Wildcats used an early 21-2 run to take control en route to a 91-76 win over Oregon on Thursday night.

The victory avenged last month’s 19-point loss in Eugene, improving Arizona (20-3, 9-3 Pac-12) to 5-0 in revenge games under Tommy Lloyd.

Tubelis was 16 of 21 from the field, making 12 straight shots at one point, was 7 of 8 from the line and also had nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block.
