LOS ANGELES (AP) - Joshua Smith scored 14 points, David Wear added 13 and UCLA pulled away with a 20-6 run over both halves to rout Utah 76-49 Thursday night.
The victory restored the Bruins (11-9, 4-4 Pac-12) to .500 in league play after they were swept at the Oregon schools last week. Jerime Anderson also had 13 points and Tyler Lamb scored 10.
Chris Hines was the only Utah player in double figures with 13 points. The Utes (5-15, 2-6) have lost five of their last six and dropped to 0-4 on the road in Pac-12 play and 0-6 overall away from home.
It was the first meeting between the schools since the 1983 NCAA tournament, when the Utes won a second-round game.
