No. 23 UCLA routs California

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.

UCLA scored the first six points of the game and never looked back. The Bruins built a 20-8 margin on Adams' layup with 10:39 left in the first half.

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.

"They certainly played better than us tonight," California coach Mike Montgomery said. "They have some very good athletes and they played extremely well across the board. We had tough matchups."

Game Notes
