LOS ANGELES (AP) – Lazeric Jones scored 20 points, twice hitting go-ahead baskets in the final 8:39, and UCLA defeated Washington 75-69 on Saturday to prevent the Huskies from clinching the Pac-12 regular-season title outright.

Travis Wear had 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Tyler Lamb added 14 points for the Bruins (18-13, 11-7), who were picked to win the league title but have stumbled through a disappointing season. Unless they win next week’s Pac-12 tournament, they’re destined to miss the NCAA tournament for the second time in three years.

C.J. Wilcox scored 22 points and Terrence Ross added 14 for the Huskies (21-9, 14-4). The loss allows second-place California to grab a share of the league title with a win at Stanford on Sunday.

California also would earn the league tournament’s top seed by virtue of a tiebreak because the Golden Bears beat the Huskies in their only regular-season meeting.
