Highly-touted UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad is starting to look like the player he was in high school. The freshman had a career night in the Bruins' pummeling of Prairie View A&M.
The freshman 15? How about the freshman 25? Shabazz Muhummad posted a career-high 25 points Saturday night in UCLA's pummeling of Prairie View A&M, 95-53.
Muhammad shot 8-for-14 on the floor to lead the Bruins in points. The only blemish on the freshman's night was the four turnovers he allowed. Kyle Anderson, also a freshman, collected his second double-double of his career with 16 points and 11 rebounds in addition to his seven assists, two steals and one blocked shot. Larry Drew II contributed four assists and nine rebounds.
For Prairie A&M, Jourdan DeMuynck had a double-double of his own, scoring 10 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
Saturday night's victory at Pauley Pavilion was the first of six-straight home games for the Bruins. UCLA is currently 5-1 at home and 7-3 overall. On Tuesday, Dec. 18, after sitting in traffic for two hours on the drive up to LA, Long Beach State will face the Bruins at 7:00 p.m. PT.
