UCLA Vs. Washington: Bruins Complete Weekend Sweep With 75-69 Win

Lazeric Jones had 20 points and five assists to lead the UCLA Bruins to a 75-69 win over the Pac-12 leading Washington Huskies on Saturday afternoon at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The win snapped a four-game losing streak by UCLA to Washington and completed a weekend home sweep to end the regular season over the Bruins.

The Bruins (18-13, 11-7) will be the No. 5 seed if Colorado loses to Oregon State on Saturday, or the No. 6 seed should the Buffaloes lose, in the upcoming Pac-12 Tournament, which begins Wednesday afternoon at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Travis Wear had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Bruins, who overcame a 47-44 halftime deficit. Washington scored just 22 points in the second half and made just nine of 32 field goals (28.1%) in the final 20 minutes.

C.J Wilcox led the Huskies (21-9, 14-4) with 22 points, and Terrence Ross added 18 points. Washington will be the No. 1 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament if Cal loses to Stanford on Sunday night. Should the Bears beat the Cardinal, Cal will be co-champions of the Pac-12 and have the No. 1 seed by virtue of their win over Washington on January 19.

The Bruins on Wednesday will face either the No. 11 seed Utah Utes or No. 12 seed USC Trojans in the opening round of the Pac-12 Tournament.
