Leaf-led Bruins pull away from Kent State

TJ Leaf scored 23 points, Thomas Welsh added 16 and UCLA pulled away late for a 97-80 victory over scrappy Kent State on Friday night in the NCAA Tournament South Region.

UCLA encountered some rough patches before and after halftime to make their fans squirm for a bit. In the end, though, the Bruins shot 63 percent and pulled away from Kent State for a 97-80 victory, completing an undefeated first round for the Pac-12. UCLA will have to maintain its focus for longer stretches on Sunday against Cincinnati, in a juicy second-round matchup between two 30-win teams.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

UCLA has looked a little listless since late in the first half but still has too many weapons for a Kent State team that has only had four players score. A concern for Steve Alford: the much taller Bruins have been outrebounded to this point and have surrendered 12 offensive boards.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

After an awful start, Kent State has found some serious life and trails UCLA now by just five points. Lonzo Ball has been moving awkwardly since falling on his hip late in the first half.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Scary moment for UCLA as Lonzo Ball took a hard fall on a lob pass late in the first half. Ball stayed in the game but rubbed his left hip area for a while and appeared to be limping a bit the rest of the half. Ball is already dealing with a left thumb sprain. The Bruins lead 47-39 at halftime.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Kent State looks more like the team that was 13-12 and 5-7 in the MAC a little more than a month ago than any kind of Cinderella early on. UCLA has done pretty much what it wants in building an 11-2 edge, and even with Ike Anigbogu out with a foot injury, the Bruins have major size advantages all over the court.
