UCLA vs. Cal Poly recap: Mustangs upset No. 11 Bruins

Stephen Dunn

The UCLA Bruins suffered an upset loss at the hands of the Cal Poly Mustangs, 70-68.

It was a tough night for the No. 11 UCLA Bruins as they dropped their second game of the season in an upset loss to the Cal Poly Mustangs at home on Sunday. The Bruins weren't able to shake the Mustangs all game and Cal Poly surged ahead in the final minutes, holding on for the 70-68 win.

The Bruins knotted the game at 68 on a Jordan Adams layup with 20 seconds remaining. Kyle Odister, who provided key minutes off the bench down the stretch, got to the line on the following possession and knocked down two free throws to give Cal Poly the lead. In the final seconds, the Bruins went for the win as Norman Powell hoisted a 3-pointer. The shot missed and UCLA got the offensive rebound before Adams missed from beyond the arc at the buzzer.

Heading into the meeting, the Bruins were 5-0 all-time against Cal Poly and seemed to hold an edge offensively with the Mustangs ranking 306th in the nation in field goal percentage with a dismal .384 record from the floor. The Mustangs, however, shot 44.4 percent from the field and scored 43 points in the second half after tallying 27 in the first period.

On the bright side, Shabazz Muhammad recorded his first career double-double for UCLA with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Mustangs forward Chris Eversley matched Muhammad with 15 and 10 for his own double-double.

The Bruins will look to rebound against the Cal State-Northridge Matadors on Thursday.
