Jones, UCLA Drop Colorado Out Of 1st Place
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lazeric Jones had 17 points and nine assists to help UCLA beat Colorado 77-60 Saturday, dropping the Buffaloes out of a first-place tie in the Pac-12.
Tyler Lamb and David Wear added 13 points each, and Travis Wear had 12 points for the Bruins (12-9, 5-4), who improved to 4-0 in league play at their temporary home in the Los Angeles Sports Arena. Jerime Anderson had eight of UCLA’s 25 assists, their highest total in nearly four years.
Askia Booker scored 13 points and Andre Roberson had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Buffs (14-7, 6-3), whose three-game winning streak ended as they fell out of a four-way tie for first in their inaugural season in the Pac-12.
The Buffs have lost three of four Pac-12 games away from their high-altitude home in Boulder.
It was the Bruins’ second straight blowout victory, having beaten Utah 76-49 on Thursday.
