Cougs Drop 9th Game in Pac-12, UCLA Wins 76-62

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Shabazz Muhammad scored 12 of his 17 points in the first half, when UCLA took control on its way to routing Washington State 76-62 on Saturday night for the Bruins' second straight victory overall and seventh in a row over the Cougars.

Jordan Adams added 14 points, Kyle Anderson 12 and Travis Wear 11 for the Bruins (18-6, 8-3 Pac-12), who shot a season-high 62 percent from the field one game after hitting a season-low 33 percent in a 2-point win over Washington on Thursday.

Brock Motum scored 17 points and Royce Woolridge added 16 for the Cougars (11-13, 2-9), who were coming off a four-point loss at Southern California. They have lost four in a row and nine of their last 11.

 

The Cougars hit five straight 3-pointers to start the game and didn't score their first 2-point basket until 3:41 remained in the half. They led 9-7 before UCLA went on a 32-15 run to end the half leading 39-24. The Bruins shot 59 percent, had seven steals and outscored the Cougars 20-4 in the paint.

Muhammad's highlight basket came on a one-handed dunk after Larry Drew II found him alone on a fast break.

The Bruins didn't have an extended scoring run in the second half, but they built a 20-point lead on a basket by Anderson.

Trailing 67-47, Washington State put together its lone big run, outscoring UCLA 13-3 to trail 70-60. Dexter Kernich-Drew had seven points and Woolridge added four in a row in the spurt that ended when D.J. Shelton turned the ball over.

Drew II got fouled and made both free throws to launch a 6-0 run that ended the game for the Bruins.

State's 19 turnovers were one off the team's season high.
