UCLA center Joshua Smith sustained a concussion during practice Wednesday and was not suited up for the Bruins' Pac-12 game Thursday night against Arizona at the Honda Center.
Travis Wear scored a career-high 20 points, his twin brother David Wear added 14 points and UCLA held on over the final 5:18 to beat Arizona 65-58 Thursday night and stop a two-game skid.
What do six ASU scholarship basketball players and an ASU football team with six wins have in common? USC can beat neither. Now Arizona State (5-9, 1-1 Pac-12) turns their attention to the UCLA Bruins (8-7, 1-2), a team that a similar rough start in the non-conference play but has been playing good basketball in recent weeks, including a nice little win over Arizona on Thursday night.
