UCLA cruises past struggling USC

Travis Wear scored 19 points and pulled down eight rebounds, and UCLA built an 18-point halftime lead Sunday en route to a 66-47 victory over Southern California that kept the Trojans winless in Pac-12 play with their sixth consecutive loss overall.

Lazeric Jones added 15 points for the Bruins (10-7, 3-2 Pac-12), who have won three in a row.

They won on the road for just the second time, although the game was played at USC's Galen Center, up the street from the Los Angeles Sports Arena, where the Bruins are playing their home games this season.

Maurice Jones, with 13 points, was the only player in double figures for the Trojans (5-13, 0-5), who have not lost this many games in a row since they dropped seven straight in 2003.
