UCLA Beats ASU 87 to 72

ASU Coach Sendak's Technical almost won the game for ASU. - Andrew Fielding-USA TODAY Sports

Instant recap of UCLA's 87-72 win over Arizona State at Pauley.

UCLA won a strange game against ASU 87 to72.

The first half the LaVine lineup stole the ball and started to run.  LaVine and company broke open the game for UCLA.  LaVine himself had 15 points at half on a combination of threes and dunks to help UCLA to a 17 point lead.  LaVine (along with Norman Powell) even did a good job in the first half of defending ASU's point guard Jahii Carson.  UCLA led at 50-33 at half.

The second half was going along fine with UCLA leading around 17 until ASU Coach Herb Sendak got a technical foul.  Sendak may have had a beef.  Some close calls seemed to favor UCLA.  After Sendak's T the referees decided to call everything and make up some calls.  At first favoring ASU but then just bizarre.  As Kingslook said: "please someone steal their whistles."  The game flow changed to slow as molasses and ASU came back.

But ultimately UCLA hung on and never let ASU too close.  Anderson was stopped from a triple double by fouls.  He finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists.
