LOS ANGELES -- All five UCLA starters scored in double figures, led by freshman forward Kevon Looney with 15 points, as the Bruins cruised to a 73-54 victory over Cal in Pac-12 action Sunday night.
The win was UCLA's second straight after a five-game losing streak. The Bruins raised their record to 10-7 overall, 2-2 in Pac-12 play.
Cal (11-6, 1-3) lost for the fifth time in its past six games.
UCLA guard Norman Powell hit his first five shots in the game, helping to fuel a 10-2 run by the Bruins midway through the first half that turned a back-and-forth game in their favor permanently. The Bruins never trailed after a three-pointer by Isaac Hamilton made it 13-11 and started that surge six minutes into the game.
Cal was led by guard Jordan Mathews with a game-high 23 points but he was the only Bear to reach double figures.
