Sacramento State vs UCLA

No. 22 UCLA 86, Sacramento State 50


LOS ANGELES -- With three players out and another ailing, five of UCLA's seven players who logged major minutes Monday night scored in double figures.

After a slow start, the 22nd-ranked Bruins cranked up their offense in an 86-50 victory against Sacramento State.

Jordan Adams scored 21 points, including seven straight during a 14-0 second-half run. He has led the Bruins (3-0) in scoring in each of their games after breaking his foot to end last season.

"It's good to establish your rhythm early against a team like this," he said. "I just went after it."

Zach LaVine and Norman Powell added 14 points each, David Wear had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Tony Parker scored 10 points. Kyle Anderson had a career-high eight assists and Adams had a career-best eight steals in the first of three games for the Bruins this week.

"Kyle's always looking to give us guys passes," LaVine said. "We got to keep our heads up and look for them."

The Bruins were without starter Travis Wear, although coach Steve Alford said he'll return for Friday's game against Morehead State after being out since having an appendectomy on Oct. 28.

Also out were freshman Waanah Bail, who has yet to be cleared for game action, and reserve Noah Allen. He had surgery last week for fractures to his face after getting hit going for a loose ball in the closing seconds against Oakland. Alford said Bail may possibly play next week.

Bryce Alford played 24 minutes, with seven points and five assists, despite a virus. His brother Kory joined him in the final minutes. They are the coach's sons.

"I felt really bad this morning and just fought through it," Bryce Alford said.

Dylan Garrity scored 18 points -- all on a career-high six 3-pointers -- to lead Sacramento State (1-2).

The Hornets, of the Big Sky Conference, fell to 0-13 against ranked opponents since joining Division I in 1991-92, and 3-36 all-time against Pac-12 schools.

The Bruins led 45-29 when they put together the game's biggest run. They outscored the Hornets 27-6, including a 14-0 run, to extend their lead to 72-35.

Six UCLA players scored in the spurt, including eight points by LaVine, whose dunk enlivened the announced crowd of 5,489 at Pauley Pavilion. Adams' seven straight points came on a 3-pointer and two layups, including one off his own steal. Anderson added five points.

UCLA didn't commit a foul until nearly 10 minutes into the game.

"That was huge knowing that we were short-handed," Steve Alford said.

The Bruins easily exceeded their 81.5-point scoring average while holding the Hornets to 34 percent shooting. Sacramento State had 18 turnovers.

UCLA had 10 turnovers and 19 assists.

"Hopefully we're making some progress," Steve Alford said.

The Bruins used a 16-6 run to end the first half leading 36-23.

The Hornets led by one point and tied the game once early on before UCLA gradually pulled away to a 14-point lead. The Hornets never made it to the free throw line, where the Bruins were 12 of 18 and five times missed hitting the front end of a 1-and-1.
