UCLA blows out Cougs in Pullman

Associated Press
 

PULLMAN — Michael Roll scored 15 points as hot-shooting UCLA buried Washington State 71-51 on Thursday for the Bruins’ 17th consecutive win in Pullman.

Nikola Dragovic and Tyler Honeycutt scored 14 points each as UCLA (12-13, 7-6 Pac-10) shot 65 percent while breaking a two-game losing streak and keeping its slim Pac-10 title hopes alive.

Washington State (15-11, 5-9) has lost six of its last seven games to put its postseason hopes in peril.

The Cougars shot just 36 percent, including a 3-of-19 performance from 3-point range. They have not enjoyed a home victory against UCLA since 1993.
