Arizona extends its win streak to 10 games on Saturday night, as it manhandled East Tennessee State at the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The East Tennessee State Buccaneers had a huge uphill battle facing them against No. 4 Arizona, who they played in the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu. 'Zona had won nine straight games and the Bucs had lost their last four. The Wildcats showed no mercy as they overpowered ETSU to a 73-53 victory.

Brandon Ashley lead Arizona in scoring with 16 points, hitting 5-for-8 from the field in addition to his seven rebounds. Ashley was the only Wildcat to hit double-digit points in the game. All but two players for 'Zona contributed points to the victory. Kaleb Tarczewski lead the team in rebounds with eight grabs. As a team, Arizona out-rebounded ETSU 45-26.

The Bucs scored only 17 points in the first half but managed to outscore Arizona in the second, 36-38. ETSU's Jarvis Jones was the game's highest scorer with 21 points, going 7-18 from the field and 6-6 at the free-throw line. In addition to points, Jones lead the Bucs with three assists. Lester Wilson topped ETSU with seven rebounds and added nine points.

Arizona's next game is on Sunday against the winner of the Hawaii-Miami game.
