UCLA Basketball Blows Out Shanghai Jiao Tong In Exhibition

The UCLA Bruins defeated Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 72-31, in an exhibition game on Monday as part of the team's weeklong goodwill tour in China.

Led by freshman Jordan Adams' 20 points and five steals, the Bruins recorded their second consecutive blowout in China after defeating Tsinghua University, 116-68, on Saturday night in Beijing.

"I thought we played really well in the first half at both ends," head coach Ben Howland said. "I was really pleased with how we shared the ball. One thing that has come out of these two games is our great unselfishness by everybody. We even got to the point where we were over passing, which is a good problem to have."

Travis Wear (12 points, 12 rebounds), Norman Powell (13 points) and Joshua Smith (10 points) also scored in double-figures for the Bruins.

The Bruins next game will be against the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association on Tuesday.
