Recap


UCLA 61, Washington 54: Shabazz Muhammad led the way with 21 points as the visiting Bruins clinched their first Pac-12 regular-season title since 2008.

Muhammad scored 14 points in the second half for UCLA (23-8, 13-5 Pac-12), which claimed the title outright after Oregon lost to Utah earlier Saturday. Fellow freshman Jordan Adams added 17 points and four steals for the Bruins, who went on a 13-2 run in the final minutes of the game to seal the win.

Scott Suggs scored 14 points in his final home game for the Huskies (17-14, 9-9), who led by one at halftime but saw their three-game winning streak come to an end. Desmond Simmons had 11 rebounds (nine in the second half) while Aziz N’Diaye grabbed 10 boards and added two blocks.

The Bruins’ Travis Wear led the team with 10 points in the first half but was held scoreless in the second as the Huskies led by as much as four points with six minutes remaining. UCLA’s Kyle Anderson made a layup to cut the deficit to two and Muhammad scored five straight points to give the Bruins the lead for good.

UCLA recorded 29 points off 19 Washington turnovers and capitalized on the Huskies’ foul trouble, shooting 14-for-18 from the free throw line. Washington converted only three of its nine foul shots.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Suggs totaled 71 points over the last four regular-season games of his college career. … UCLA advanced to the NCAA Tournament's Final Four the last time it won a regular-season title. … Washington will enter next week’s conference tournament as a ninth seed.
