PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Joshua Smith scored 19 points Saturday, including six in the final 2 minutes, to lead UCLA past Washington State 63-60.

Brock Motum scored 19 of his game-high 25 points in the first half for the Cougars (12-11, 4-7). Reggie Moore added 12, Abe Lodwick 11 and Mike Ladd10.

The Bruins were down 34-29 at the half but went into a zone in the second half that shut down the Cougars.

With 11:40 left, Washington State led 49-45. But it scored only one basket in nearly 9 minutes. During that span, the Bruins had a 13-2 edge and took a 58-51 lead with 4:49 left.

Lodwick broke the run when he hit a 3-pointer, but the Bruins closed out the game at the free throw line, hitting 6 of 8 in the final 30 seconds.
