Trojans give broom to Bruins

UCLA lost to their cross town rivals for the second time this season 68 to 64 as turnovers and poor free throws let the Trojans beat the Bruins at the Galen Center. USC scored first at the 19:12 mark of the first half but UCLA hit a 3 pointer to go ahead by one. Then USC hit two shots in a row and lead by three. UCLA hit two twos of their own to go up by one.

USC went ahead of the Bruins with a 9 to 2 run to go up 15 to 9 with 12:01 left in the half. USC’s lead stayed at 4 to 6 points until the 9:44 mark when they went up by 8 points 13 to 21. UCLA then whittled the lead down and went ahead by one point 29 to 28 with 2:35 left, but USC ran off the last four points to lead 32 to 29 at the end of the half.

James Keefe did not play tonight with his sore shoulder and Brendan Lane started in his place, along with Malcolm Lee, Michael Roll, Nikola Dragovic and Tyler Honeycutt. Dragovic scored nine points in the half, Nelson got eight points and four rebounds and Roll got five.
