LOS ANGELES (AP)

Aaron Thompson scored a career-high 22 points and Cal State Fullerton upset UCLA 68-65 in double overtime Monday night, snapping a nine-game losing streak against the Bruins. Gerard Anderson added 14 points and Jacques Streeter 11 for the Titans (2-0), who blew a 10-point lead in the second half but rallied to outscore UCLA 8-5 in the second overtime. Michael Roll and Malcolm Lee scored 17 points each for the Bruins, who lost a season opener for the first time since coach Steve Lavin's final season in 2002-03, when San Diego won in overtime. The Titans were 0-9 against UCLA, all at Pauley Pavilion, which drew 6,145 for a game that began at 9 p.m. PST. It was the start of ESPN televising 24 consecutive hours of college basketball games around the country. The Bruins opened the season out of the Top 25 for the first time in five years, and with a national audience looking in, they hardly made a case for changing that. UCLA shot 31 percent from the floor, 5 of 29 from 3-point range and 8 of 17 from the free throw line. The Bruins were just 3 of 17 from the floor in both overtimes. The Titans used an effective zone to keep the Bruins shooting from the perimeter, and they tossed up miss after miss. In the second overtime, Street scored four points, including a 3-pointer, to carry Fullerton. The Titans made three free throws in the first overtime, while UCLA's points came on a 3-pointer by Roll from the left side. The Bruins missed their first four 3s of the five-minute OT, then Lee missed another one as time expired to force another extra session. Near the end of regulation with the game tied at 57, Roll got fouled and missed the free throw with 30 seconds left. He then committed his first foul against Streeter with 9 seconds to go. Streeter made the first to tie the game at 57 and missed the second. Jerime Anderson's jumper at the other end missed as time expired. The Bruins trailed by 10 early in the second half when they used a 14-2 run to take a 47-45 lead - their first since late in the first half. Roll scored seven points, capping it with UCLA's first 3-pointer of the game. Lee briefly left the game during that stretch with leg cramps. But the Titans outscored them 12-10 to end regulation. The Bruins lost starters Darren Collison, Josh Shipp, Alfred Aboya and Jrue Holiday, with Collison and Holiday taken in the first round of the NBA draft. UCLA has had six players taken in the first round in the last four years, putting coach Ben Howland in perpetual reloading mode. This season's team is his youngest and least experienced going into his seventh year in Westwood.
