At halftime last night, UCLA's Darren Collison had no points and his fourth-ranked Bruins were languishing in a 26-26 tie with No. 17 Washington State. But 20 minutes later, Collison had 18 points to his name, and UCLA was celebrating its 67-59 victory, reports the Los Angeles Times. The Bruins have beat the Cougars all three times the teams met this season.
Freshman phenom Kevin Love didn't disappoint, adding 16 points and nine rebounds to Russel Westbrook's 14 points. UCLA's success comes in spite of a tough journey north—heavy snows diverted the team's plane—and the lack of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, who remained in LA to nurse a sprained ankle.
