FINAL: UCLA 74, Arizona 69

UCLA controlled the entire game, never trailing after three minutes in a 74-69 win that keeps the team in control of its own destiny. Arizona closed to within three points in the final minute, but a clutch rebound by freshman Shabazz Muhammad all but sealed the victory. Muhammad went to the line and sank two free throws to cap the final score, serenaded by “One more year!” cheers as he did.

Muhammad scored a game-high 18 after being limited by foul trouble early, followed closely behind by Kyle Anderson’s 17. Four Bruins scored in double figures.

This is UCLA’s first season sweep over Arizona since 2008. The attendance of 13,727 is a stadium record.

UPDATE: Here’s the game story, as well as Jill Painter’s column on Shabazz Muhammad.

    Don’t get excited by this team. It will disappoint you soon enough.

    Great win! They handled the bright lights with composure. Started a little shaky, and had some uncharacteristic turnovers throughout the game, but the lights haven’t been brighter all season.

    I hope the go undefeated the rest of the way.

    As much as I have been frustrated with coach Howland, I want him to come back just to stick it to the bruination hacks.

    Man, that would be the best all out freak out over there if that happens. And, I would love to watch that.
