Bruins Cruise Past Arizona State For 9th Conference Win
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Lazeric Jones scored 13 of his 20 points as UCLA pulled away in the second half, lifting the Bruins to a 66-57 victory over Arizona State Thursday night.
UCLA (16-12, 9-6 Pac-12) overcame some rough stretches in the first half by hitting 15 of 27 shots in the second to extend a 1-point lead to 17. David Wear added 13 points to give the Bruins a season sweep of the Sun Devils.
Arizona State (8-20, 4-12) had seven scholarship players available with second-leading scorer Carrick Felix out due to an illness and again had trouble holding onto the ball. The Sun Devils had 18 turnovers that led to 19 points for UCLA and didn’t have an answer when the Bruins started extending the lead in the second half.
Jonathan Gilling had 17 points and Chris Colvin added 10 points and nine assists for Arizona State, which has lost four straight and nine of 11.
