UCLA came out on fire, making eight of its first 10 shots and racing to a 19-6 lead just over five minutes into the game. UCLA kept up that dominance and held a 47-26 lead at halftime.
UCLA was ahead 7-0 before the Trojans scored a basket, and afterward interim USC coach Bob Cantu seemed to say the game was over at that point.
“We got down 7-0 right out of the gate and from that point it was tough to battle out of that,” said Cantu, whose chair collapsed as he sat down after the game.
“That’s about how the night went,” he said.
