TUCSON, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Brandon Ashley hit all three of his shots from beyond the 3-point arc Wednesday in leading No. 1 Arizona to a 74-48 win over New Mexico State.

For the first time in a decade, the Wildcats played a game as the top-ranked team in the country and backed up that lofty position by dominating the second half.

Ashley finished with 15 points, making 5-of-7 from the field overall as part of Arizona State's 51 percent shooting performance.

Kaleb Tarczewski added 14 points and Aaron Gordon had 11.

Arizona State, at 10-0, is one of 14 unbeaten teams remaining in major college basketball. No. 2 Ohio State and No. 6 Wisconsin also stayed perfect with wins on Wednesday.

Daniel Mullings scored 18 points and was the only player for New Mexico State (7-5) in double figures.
