After beating Kentucky and opening Pac-12 play with lopsided wins against Washington State and Washington, UCLA looked like it was finally finding a rhythm. Instead, the Bruins were handed arguably their most disappointing loss of the season: a double-overtime loss, 107-99, at Stanford (7-8). UCLA's Thomas Welsh missed about 14 missed in the first half after he sustained a laceration to his face and received three stitches, but still fouled out along with teammates G.G. Goloman and Kris Wilkes.

UCLA junior guard Aaron Holiday with a clutch driving left-handed layup in the final minute to help lift the Bruins to a win over No. 7 Kentucky 83-75 at the CBS Sports Classic at the Smoothie King Center. Holiday, who had 20 points and 8 assists, was perhaps the biggest difference with his steady play at the point today, something Kentucky lacked.

Kentucky has narrowed the gap against UCLA with some active, lively defense. The Bruins lead, once 10 points, is now just four with 2:56 remaining. Hamidou Diallo, Kevin Knox and Wenyen Gabriel leading the late charge.

The Wildcats have come alive. After Kentucky fell down by 8 points, freshman Kevin Knox ignited his team with a 3-pointer and a thunderous dunk. Kentucky has narrowed UCLA's lead to just four points with 15:14 left.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

UCLA opens up the second half with consecutive 3-pointers and the Bruins have now scored 11 consecutive points, including a 5-0 run that ended the first half. Kentucky coach John Calipari called a timeout with 18:36 left in the second half as UCLA leads by six.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer
