Reeves Nelson scored a career-high 24 points, tipping in the

winning basket at the buzzer, and UCLA beat California 86-84

Thursday night for its third straight win.

Lazeric Jones added a career-high 24 points, making seven of

eight free throws in the final 1:11, and Tyler Honeycutt had 15 for

3-pointers, four by Honeycutt.

Cal’s Allen Crabbe hit a 3-pointer that tied the game at 84 with

right side of the free-throw line and put up a short jumper that

missed.

Nelson made a beeline for the offensive rebound and got his

right hand on the ball to beat the buzzer for the win after the

Bruins blew a 14-point lead over the final 4:07.
