Dragovic, Nelson lead UCLA to 74-62 victory

Jan 23, 2010 - 11:21 PM LOS ANGELES(AP) -- Reeves Nelson and Nikola Dragovic scored eight points each during a decisive second-half run that sparked UCLA to a 74-62 victory over Washington State on Saturday.

The Bruins (9-10, 4-3 Pac-10) led by two points early in the second half before outscoring the Cougars 16-3 to make it 48-33 with 11:14 remaining. Washington State (14-6, 4-4), which never led, didn't get closer than seven points the rest of the way.

Nelson scored all but four of his 19 points in the second half, and Dragovic had 16 of his 18 after halftime for the Bruins, who have won two straight after losing three of four.

UCLA is 52-2 against Washington State in Los Angeles and leads the series 96-14.

Reggie Moore led Washington State with 24 points - one shy of his career high. Klay Thompson, who brought a conference-leading 22.8-point average into the game, finished with 13 points.
