Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) – Jordan Adams and Zach LaVine netted 21
points apiece to lead the 19th-ranked UCLA Bruins past the Nevada Wolf Pack,
105-84, as part of the Las Vegas Invitational.

Adams hit 10-of-10 from the free throw line and eclipsed the 21-point mark for
the fifth straight game, while LaVine made 4-of-6 from 3-point range off the
bench for UCLA (6-0), which is off to its best start since 2007-08 when the
Bruins opened the season 7-0.

Kyle Anderson filled the stat sheet with 17 points, 10 rebounds and a game-
high six assists in the triumph, and Norman Powell netted 14 points.

Deonte Burton and Jerry Evans, Jr. both dropped 20 points in the setback,
while Michael Perez added 18. Nevada (3-4) has lost three of its last four
contests.

Nevada led 7-2 in the early going after Burton sank a triple and converted a
four-point play two minutes in. Powell picked up his second foul on the second
Burton trey, and his replacement LaVine promptly drained a pair of threes to
put UCLA in front for good.

Minutes later, Adams assisted on consecutive baskets by Anderson and Travis
Wear before LaVine’s triple put UCLA ahead 25-15 midway through the opening
period.

David Wear scored nine of his 10 points in the final 2:06 of the half,
including his second 3-pointer of the season and a pair of free throws with
two seconds remaining. UCLA shot 64 percent from the field and held a
commanding 56-39 advantage at the break.

UCLA opened the second half with a Powell alley-oop from Adams and quickly
ended any thoughts of a Wolf Pack comeback. Bryce Alford’s triple 6:36 into
the frame made it 77-53, and the Bruins rolled the rest of the way.
