Holder, who came in averaging 20.3 points and had a 40-point effort earlier this season against Xavier, was not the only guard to help the Sun Devils (9-0) remain undefeated.

Senior Shannon Evans added 22 points and freshman Remy Martin chipped in 21. Arizona State scored at least 90 points for the seventh time.

Kansas (7-2) had won 37 consecutive games at home coming off a loss, but could not bounce back from an upset defeat four days earlier against another Pac-12 opponent, Washington.

PHILADELPHIA -- Phil Booth and Donte DiVincenzo scored 18 points each and the No. 4 Wildcats pulled away from their gritty Big 5 rival for a victory.

La Salle (5-6) was led by B.J. Johnson with 21 points. Amar Stukes added 16 and Pookie Powell had 12 for the Explorers, who dropped their second in a row. Powell missed all seven of his 3-pointers and fouled out.
