Bruins beat Huskies 91-82

UCLA Coach Steve Alford

SEATTLE (AP) — Jordan Adams scored a career-high 31 points, fighting through apparent leg cramps in the second half, and UCLA wrapped up the No. 2 seed in next week’s Pac-12 Conference tournament with a 91-82 win over Washington on Thursday night.

Adams scored 16 points in the first 12-plus minutes of the second half before having to sit with his legs appearing to cramp.

When Adams returned, it was Seattle-area native Zach LaVine taking over, scoring 11 of his 14 points in the final five minutes for UCLA (23-7, 12-5 Pac-12). LaVine’s closing punch included a three-point play off a Washington turnover with 1:24 left that gave the Bruins an 87-77 lead and finally put the Huskies away.

C.J. Wilcox led Washington (16-14, 8-9) with 20 points despite sitting for more than five minutes of the second half with foul trouble. Nigel Williams-Goss added 17 points.
