Texas Tops Bruins

By  | 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A.J. Abrams scored 31 points, including the
last six of the game for No. 8 Texas, sending the Longhorns to a
68-64 victory over No. 12 UCLA on Thursday night.
Abrams broke a 62-62 tie with a 3-pointer with 2:53 to play,
then made two free throws a minute later to push Texas' lead back
to three. After the Bruins' Josh Shipp missed the front end of a
1-and-1 with 15 seconds left, Shipp fouled Abrams who made one of
his two free throws for the final point.
Abrams' 31 points matched his career high. Texas' Damion James
added 13 points and 13 rebounds, including a big grab after Shipp
missed his free throw. James' basket with 3:46 to play tied it at
62.
The Longhorns (6-1) held UCLA (4-2) scoreless after Alfred
Aboya's basket with 2:28 left pulled the Bruins within 65-64.
Darren Collison scored 22 points for the Bruins and Shipp added
15.
