Another sleepy effort by the Bruins in the first half has them trailing Oregon by three at Pauley Pavilion.
Without Malcolm Lee, the number would be a whole lot bigger.
Lee had 11 points but no other UCLA player had more than four as the team shot 9-for-26 from the field and just 4-for-8 from the free-throw line. Turnovers again have hurt the Bruins, who have eight, but not as much as Oregon’s Jay-R Strowbridge and Joevan Catron.
The two have teamed for 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting, 10 for Strowbridge off the bench after starting guard Johnathan Loyd was called for two early fouls and played just two minutes in the first half.
