UCLA vs Utah

UCLA 57, Utah 53


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Larry Drew II scored 12 points, including a driving layup to beat the shot clock with 9 seconds remaining, and UCLA held off Utah 57-53 on Thursday night.

The Utes, who were led by Cedric Martin's 12 points, had two chances to take the lead in the final minutes, but Glen Dean missed wide-open 3-point attempts.

Travis Wear scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half, when his teammates started misfiring. Jordan Adams also had 12 to help extend the Bruins' win streak to eight games.

Kyle Anderson scored 11 points as the Bruins (13-3, 3-0) took advantage of nine first-half Utah turnovers to lead by as many as 13 before settling for a 34-23 advantage at halftime.

Playing in front of an enthusiastic crowd that trudged through a major snowstorm, the Utes (8-7, 0-3) dropped their third straight despite Jason Washburn's and Jordan Loveridge's 11 points apiece.
