NCAA Game Summary - UCLA at California



(Wednesday, February 19th)

Final Score: (23) UCLA 86, California 66

Berkeley, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jordan Adams had 28 points, six rebounds and five steals in the 23rd-ranked UCLA Bruins' 86-66 victory over the California Golden Bears on Wednesday.

Travis Wear added 13 points for the Bruins (21-5, 10-3 Pac-12), who have won four in a row. Kyle Anderson tallied 11 points, nine boards and seven assists.

"I thought we played really well," UCLA coach Steve Alford said. "Jordan [Adams] is really in a groove, and I think, I hope it is because we are really deep in our ability to score baskets. I think what Jordan is doing, he is starting to get rhythm."

Jordan Mathews ended with 16 points for the Golden Bears (17-9, 8-5), who had a two-game winning streak snapped. Jabari Bird had 11 points.

California stayed within striking distance and used a 5-0 spurt to get within four. Justin Cobbs' three-point play with 3:46 remaining made it 34-30.

But the Bruins scored the next seven points. Bryce Alford made a 3-pointer before Wear made a pair of jumpers to make it 41-30 UCLA. It was a 44-32 game at the half.

California got within nine, 50-41, early in the second half, but UCLA scored 11 of the next 14 points. Adams' jumper with 13:18 to play made it a 61-44 contest.

It was a double-digit game the rest of the way.
