Muhammad Helps UCLA Defeat Washington To Claim Pac-12 Title

SEATTLE (CBSLA.com/AP) Shabazz Muhammad scored 21 points, Larry Drew II came up with another huge shot against Washington, and No. 23 UCLA clinched  the Pac-12 Conference regular season title with a 61-54 win over the Huskies on Saturday.

UCLA earned its third regular season crown under coach Ben Howland. The Bruins won the title outright after Utah defeated Oregon 72-62. The Bruins lost control of the conference crown themselves when they lost to Washington State on Thursday, but there were plenty of hugs and handshakes to go around after winning in Seattle for the first time since 2004.

Muhammad scored 14 in the second half and helped UCLA (23-8, 13-5 Pac-12) rally from a four-point deficit with 5 minutes remaining. Washington (17-14, 9-9) scored just two points over the final 5 minutes.

Scott Suggs led Washington with 14 points.
