LOS ANGELES (AP) — Shabazz Muhammad scored 20 of his career-high 27 points in the second half to lead a dominant effort by UCLA’s freshmen, and the Bruins defeated Fresno State 91-78 on Saturday night for their fourth consecutive victory.
Fellow freshmen starters Jordan Adams added 25 points and Kyle Anderson had career bests with 20 points and 17 rebounds for the Bruins (9-3), who improved to 8-0 all-time against the Bulldogs in the teams’ first meeting since Dec. 27, 1990. Larry Drew II had 10 assists.
It was the first time three UCLA freshmen scored 20 or more points in a game.
Freshman Marvelle Harris scored a career-high 19 points and Tyler Johnson added 16 in Fresno State’s fourth straight loss. The Bulldogs (5-7) are winless in three games against the Pac-12 this season, having lost at Washington State and to Colorado this month.
