Jordan Adams scored 22 points and Kyle Anderson added 21 to lead No. 18 UCLA to an 89-76 victory over UC Santa Barbara on Tuesday night.
Bryce Alford, the son of UCLA coach Steve Alford, hit a 3-pointer with 8:04 remaining in the second half, snapping a 65-all tie and sparking a 7-0 run.
With chants of "over-rated" emanating from the Santa Barbara fans sitting on the east end of Pauley Pavilion, Alford's 3 was followed by a dunk by Tony Parker and two free throws by Norman Powell. The Bruins (8-0) held the Gauchos (3-3) to nine points the rest of the way.
Alvin Williams, who scored a school-record 39 points in the Gauchos' last game against South Dakota State, had 23 points, just six in the first half.
