Kyle Anderson drops UCLA’s first triple-double since 1995

In an 81-70 win that looked more difficult than it should have, Kyle Anderson carved out his little piece of UCLA history.

The sophomore point guard dropped a triple-double on Morehead State, the first by a Bruin since Toby Bailey logged his on Dec. 18, 1995. The 6-foot-9 sophomore stuffed the box score with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists — reaching the milestone with a dish to guard Jordan Adams with 3:19 left.

Adams led the game with a career-high 30 points, the most for any UCLA player since Tyler Honeycutt scored 33 in 2010. Both Adams and Anderson were named to the 50-man Naismith Award watch list this week.

Senior Travis Wear had 11 points and four rebounds in his season debut. The 6-foot-10 forward sat out UCLA’s first three games after having an appendectomy on Oct. 28.

The Bruins did have trouble inside against 6-foot-11 center Chad Posthumus. The dolefully named Canadian had a career night with 21 points and 18 rebounds.

    Do it in a conference game. Then I’ll care.

    -UCLA doesn’t win this game without Travis Wear.
    -Tony Parker got into foul trouble, bad game against a real big man
    -Norman Powell had a flat effort, took too many threes
    -Bryce had a good first half but a bad second half due to playing too many minutes because of Powell and Parker
    -Anderson did great work in the post, but was sloppy with the ball, & this game isn’t as close if he makes his free throw.
    -LaVine is going to be great
    -Adams is great
