Hot-shooting UCLA holds off Stanford

UCLA, Stanford

Sebastian Mack scored 21 points and shot 4-of-7 from beyond the 3-point arc to power UCLA to a season-high 11 made 3-pointers as a team, and the Bruins notched their fourth consecutive win with an 82-74 victory over Stanford on Wednesday.

UCLA (12-11, 7-5 Pac-12 Conference) shot 44 percent from long range and five Bruins connected on at least one. Will McClendon went 3-of-6 from beyond the arc and scored 13 points off the bench.

Stanford (11-11, 6-6) came into Wednesday’s contest averaging 9.5 made 3-pointers a game after hitting 14 on Sunday at Arizona. The Cardinal shot just 4 of 17 from beyond the arc against UCLA, however, their second-fewest made attempts from outside this season.

Stanford trailed much of the night, but remained within striking distance thanks to its 24-of-36 shooting on 2-point field-goal attempts and 14-of-17 performance at the free-throw line.

The Cardinal’s only missed foul shots came at inopportune times, however, as Maxime Raynaud split a pair then missed two consecutively in the final 1:26 as Stanford was trying to rally.

UCLA answered every Cardinal comeback push down the stretch with balanced scoring and timely baskets. Lazar Stefanovic, who finished with 10 points, made one of his two 3-pointers that pushed the lead to seven points with 5:56 remaining.

Dylan Andrews scored two of his 13 points on a jumper that turned a one-possession lead back into a two-possession difference with 4:47 left, and Adem Bona hit a layup to give UCLA a 74-76 lead with 1:38 left.

Bona finished with 16 points and eight rebounds before fouling out. UCLA’s 82 points marked a season high.

Raynaud recorded a double-double in the loss with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Spencer Jones scored 15 points and Brandon Angel added 12.
