LOS ANGELES, Cali. (AP) - Josh Shipp scored 11 of his 14 points in the first half and No. 12 UCLA defeated Cal State Northridge 85-67 Sunday night.
Freshman Jrue Holiday added 14 points, five rebounds and four assists, and Darren Collison had 14 points and six assists for the Bruins (5-2), who were coming off a four-point loss at No. 8 Texas on Thursday in which they shot 39 percent.
UCLA shot 58 percent in a sloppy game that featured a combined 42 turnovers for the two teams.
The Matadors closed the half with a 12-4 spurt to trail 41-27 at the break.
Northridge's only run of the half, a 9-2 spurt, got the Matadors within 15 points with 13 minutes remaining.
