LOS ANGELES – Jordan Adams scored 22 points and Tony Parker added 21 as No. 24 UCLA beat Oakland 91-60 on Tuesday night.
The Bruins (2-0) pulled away by closing the first half on a 27-9 run to take a 44-24 lead. An 18-2 run in the second half sealed the victory for the Bruins.
UCLA dominated in all aspects of the game, shooting 52.5 percent from the field and outrebounding the Grizzlies 49-28. Oakland shot 30.8 percent from the field.
The Golden Grizzlies (0-2) were coming off a 21-point loss to No. 12 North Carolina, and came to Los Angeles with only 10 players on their roster.
They tried in vain to keep up by launching 3-point shots but they connected on just two of 15 attempts in the first half and were 6 of 25 for the game.
Travis Bader scored 19 points to lead the Golden Grizzlies, while Tommie McCune added 12.
Norman Powell scored 18 points for the Bruins.
UCLA's Steve Alford coached in his 700th game and his career record stands at 465-235.
UCLA's 18-2 run gave it a 68-34 lead with 11:36 remaining in the game.
Alford started to empty his bench with 5:04 left in the game, and the Bruins leading 80-45.
Things aren't expected to get any easier for Oakland, which won't play its first home game until Nov. 30. The Grizzlies are headed to Hawaii, where they will play in the Maui Invitational where one of their scheduled opponents is No. 15 Gonzaga.
Tuesday's loss was Oakland's 25th in 26th road games against ranked opponents. Their lone road win against a ranked opponent came on Dec. 14, 2010 against Tennessee.
