ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Joshua Smith had 18 points and 10 rebounds and UCLA reached the .500 mark for the first time this season with an 82-39 rout of UC Davis on Saturday.
Freshman forward David Wear added 15 points for the Bruins (5-5), who have won all three games since coach Ben Howland threw 6-foot-8 power forward Reeves Nelson off the team.
Forward Travis Wear sat out his second straight game because of a skin infection on his left foot and swingman De'End Parker missed his eighth in a row because of tendinitis in his knee.
Tyler Les had a team-high nine points for the Aggies (1-9), who have lost six straight and were playing for the first time since their 74-61 loss at Hawaii on Sunday.

Except in the latter it’s “for all the Tostitos” (yeah I got sick from just saying that).

UCLA is regularly being out-rebounded, leading Coach Ben Howland to institute an old-fashioned block-out drill before the last game. But the team was out-rebounded again, so more work may be needed.A day before another opponent schooled UCLA on how to rebound, the Bruins went old school to improve in that area.

Verdict: I’m going with the UCLA Fan. I love the Mickey Hands, plus it looks like he’s the conductor of the band. Eagles fans suck, so this guy is at an automatic disadvantage. Both guys are getting it in, but I’m going with the UCLA fan.
