Kyle Anderson scored a career-high 23 points in UCLA’s 83-60 blowout of Weber State, but missed out on the second triple-double of his career.
The sophomore had 19 points, 9 rebounds and six assists with 13:30 left in the game, but sat on the bench late as the Bruins’ lead swelled to as much as 30. He finished with 10 rebounds and six assists.
“I don’t worry about that stuff,” Anderson said. “If I do everything I’m supposed to do and play as hard as I can, and help my team, that’s going to come by itself.”
He entered Sunday as one of six Division I players to notch a triple-double this season, having reached the mark in a Nov. 22 win over Morehead State. He would have been the first in the country to get his second, as well as the only player in UCLA history with multiple triple-doubles.
Most would have missed the bulk of the milestone anyway. The Pac-12 Networks feed from Pauley Pavilion died for most of the second half, though the stadium did draw a season-high attendance of 7,013.
