TUCSON, Ariz. — Salim Stoudamire returned to coach Lute Olson’s good graces and matched his career best with seven three-pointers, leading No. 14 Arizona to a 105-75 rout of Manhattan last night.


Stoudamire made his first seven three-point shots, then put up an air ball in an attempt to tie Jason Gardner’s school record.


“He got hit on the elbow, or that one might have gone in, too,” Olson said.


Stoudamire finished with 23 points on 7-of-9 shooting in 20 minutes. He was suspended for Saturday’s win at Marquette because of his pouting in the previous game against Utah, when he was held scoreless for the third time in his 101 college games and took a career-low one shot.


Channing Frye added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Wildcats (8-2), who won their fifth straight in their highest-scoring game of the season. Jawann McClellan scored 12 and Isaiah Fox had 11 for Arizona.


Freshman C.J. Anderson scored 22 points on 7-for-9 shooting for Manhattan (4-3). Arturo Dubois added 17 points and Peter Mulligan had 14 for the Jaspers, who committed 24 turnovers.


Stoudamire scored 17 points, all but two on three-pointers, in 12 minutes of the first half.


Olson had told Stoudamire to be himself and quit worrying so much.


“I wanted to have fun regardless of if I played good or not,” Stoudamire said. “I wanted to go out and smile and have fun.”
