No. 16 UCLA routs Pacific 119-80 behind record 18 3-pointers
LOS ANGELES (AP) Bryce Alford scored 30 points and led a 3-point barrage with six of the Bruins' school-record 18 in 16th-ranked UCLA's 119-80 rout of Pacific in the teams' season opener on Friday night.
Four starters scored in double figures for UCLA, including highly touted Lonzo Ball and T.J. Leaf. Ball finished with 19 points and 11 assists, while Leaf had 22 points and a game-high 15 rebounds in their college debuts.
Aaron Holiday added 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and Isaac Hamilton had 17 points in UCLA's run-and-gun offense.
Pacific was led by T.J. Wallace with 21 points despite foul trouble and Ray Bowles with 14 points. Former NBA player Damon Stoudamire lost his college coaching debut.
The Tigers weren't too shabby from 3-point range, either. They made 10 of 26, led by David Taylor, who made all three of his attempts.
