No. 19 UCLA has easy time with Pepperdine in 100-53 win

LOS ANGELES (AP) Freshman Amari Bailey scored a career-best 19 points, Jaime Jaquez Jr. added 17 points and eight rebounds and No. 19 UCLA rebounded from a rough weekend in Las Vegas to beat Pepperdine 100-53 on Wednesday night.

David Singleton scored 13 points and Jalen Clark had 12 for the Bruins (4-2). They returned to play after losing ranked teams in Illinois and Baylor at the Continental Tire Main Event.

”Our effort was much, much better and I’m a big believer in that,” UCLA coach Mick Cronin said when asked about his team’s defense. ”I didn’t think we played harder than our opponents in Vegas and I take that personally.”

Houston Mallette and Jan Zidek each scored 13 points for the Waves (4-2), who saw their three-game winning streak come to an end. Mallette did not score in the second half. Zidek’s father, George, played on UCLA’s 1995 national championship team.

Pepperdine had an early lead at 14-12 with 13:22 remaining in the first half after Mallette two 3-pointers. But the Bruins came to life with a 19-2 run to take a 31-16 lead with 6:35 remaining before the break.

Pepperdine had six turnovers in the UCLA run and had 17 in the game that the Bruins turned into 28 points.

”I talked to our guys, we have a young team, and I said `Learn from it. Learn from what they do. That’s how it’s supposed to look when you’re playing the right way and you put everything together,”’ Pepperdine coach Lorenzo Romar said. ”We’ll learn from it.”

THE TAKEAWAY

Pepperdine: Mallette went 3 of 8 from 3-point range and has made a shot from behind the arc in 32 consecutive games to match a Waves record set by Terrance Johnson in 2004. Pepperdine entered fifth in the nation at 45.8% from 3-point range and went 7 of 31 (22.6%) against the Bruins.

UCLA: The Bruins have just one more nonconference game remaining, at home Sunday against Bellarmine, before their first dip into Pac-12 play Dec. 1 at Stanford and Dec. 4 at home against Oregon. Four more nonconference games remain, including visits…
