Arizona used a big second half to defeat Utah on Thursday. Read on for a closer look at how it happened.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Kyle Fogg and Kevin Parrom each had 12 points to overcome the ejection of Solomon Hill and Arizona whipped Utah, 77-51 on Thursday night.

Nick Johnson had 11 points and Josiah Turner had 10 points as the Wildcats (12-6, 3-2 Pac-12) made 12 of 24 from 3-point range and buried the depleted Utes with a second-half flurry.

Jason Washburn scored 14 points to lead Utah (4-14, 1-5). Josh Watkins, Utah's leading scorer and only active senior, was officially dismissed Wednesday for a violation of team rules.

In the opening minutes of the second half, Cedric Martin took an elbow to the head from Hill and fell under the Arizona basket. Hill was ejected and Utah trailed 35-32 after Alex Mortensen converted the ensuing free throws.

Johnson made back-to-back 3-pointers to fuel a 20-2 run over a 4:26 span as Arizona took a 55-34 lead.
