LOS ANGELES (AP) – Malcolm Lee scored 19 points before fouling out and UCLA defeated Oregon State 69-61 Saturday, extending the Bruins’ winning streak against the Beavers to 13 games.

Joshua Smith added 15 points for UCLA (18-7, 9-3 Pac-10), which won its fifth in a row and ninth in 10 games.

Of course, it helped that the Bruins were playing the Beavers, who haven’t beaten them since the 2005 Pac-10 tournament, making UCLA’s domination the longest active streak by a league team against another.

Oregon State (9-15, 4-9) was led by Jared Cunningham with 14 points, and Devon Collier and Roberto Nelson had 10 each. The young Beavers — who started one senior, two sophomores and two freshmen — have lost three in a row and nine of 11. Third-year coach Craig Robinson has beaten every other Pac-10 team, but he’s 0-6 against the Bruins.
