UCLA Vs. Colorado Final Score: Bruins Pull Away In Second Half For 77-60 Win

Lazeric Jones had 17 points and nine assists, leading the UCLA Bruins to a 77-60 win over the Colorado Buffaloes at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on Saturday afternoon. The win was the ninth consecutive home victory for the Bruins (12-9, 5-4), who won their second straight game overall.

The Bruins used a 17-5 run early in the second half to take control of the game, and led by as many as 19 points in the second half. UCLA made 12 of their first 16 shots after halftime to help put the game away. Tyler Lamb scored 13 points, had seven rebounds, and six assists for the Bruins.

UCLA had a game that would make Norman Dale proud, with 26 assists on 31 field goals made, en route to shooting a season-high 59.6% from the field for the game, two days after shooting 58.7% against Utah on Thursday. The Bruins shot 59.2% from the field during the weekend, including 55.2% from three-point range.

Travis Wear had 12 points and seven rebounds for UCLA, and Jerime Anderson had eight points and eight assists.

Andre Roberson grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Colorado (14-7, 6-3), who saw their three-game winning streak snapped on Saturday. Askia Booker led the Buffaloes with 13 points, but leading scorer Carlon Brown was held to six points on just 2-for-7 shooting.

UCLA travels north next weekend to face the Washington schools, beginning with a Thursday night battle in Seattle against the Washington Huskies.
