Recap: UCLA vs. UC Santa Barbara

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Anderson scored 21 points to go with six rebounds and nine assists to lead 18th-ranked UCLA to an 89-76 win over UC Santa Barbara on Tuesday.

Jordan Adams added 22 points, Zach LaVine netted 15 and Norman Powell finished with 13 for the Bruins (8-0), who will visit Missouri on Saturday.

Alan Williams scored 23 points and Kyle Boswell chipped in with 18 on 5-of-9 shooting from 3-point range for the Gauchos (3-3), losers in three of their last four.

Michael Bryson added 15 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in the setback.

After Bryce Alford nailed a jumper to give UCLA a 28-24 lead with just under nine minutes remaining in the first half, Taran Brown, Zalmico Harmon and Bryson each drained consecutive treys to ignite a 14-4 Santa Barbara burst.

The Bruins managed to chip away at the lead and Powell's 3-pointer tied the game at 40-40 with 2:22 remaining. Both teams managed to make just one basket the rest of the way to go into the break knotted up at 42-42.

The Gauchos, who went 13-of-26 from 3-point range, were 9-for-11 from beyond the arc over the first 20 minutes.

The second half remained close with neither side taking a lead larger than three points until Anderson stripped Eric Childress and found Tony Parker for a breakway slam to put the Bruins up 70-65 with 7:15 left.

Powell then knocked down a pair of free throws 45 seconds later for a 72-65 edge and the Gauchos couldn't get closer than five the rest of the way.
