At the half: UCLA 39, Arizona State 29

LOS ANGELES -- Trap game, anyone?

It looked that way for a while, but UCLA straightened out and leads Arizona State, 39-29, at the half at Pauley Pavilion. The Bruins trailed by as many as 12 points in the early going, an indication that maybe their sights were already set on Saturday's highly anticipated game against No. 10-ranked Arizona.

UCLA assumed the lead with a 14-0 run, sparked by Malcolm Lee, who leads all scorers with 12 points.
