UCLA 82, UC Davis 39

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.
