Nov. 28, 2007
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Russell Westbrook had 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds Wednesday night to lead No. 2 UCLA to an 83-60 victory over George Washington.
Preseason All-America point guard Darren Collison added 14 points and had five assists in his season debut for the Bruins (7-0). Josh Shipp scored 15 points for UCLA and freshman Kevin Love had a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
Shipp scored eight points and Collison had six as the Bruins reeled off an 18-4 streak to open the second half and take control at 62-39.
Miles Beatty had 12 points and Maureece Rice added 11 to lead the Colonials (2-2). Rice, back after serving a one-game suspension for breaking team rules, scored all his points in the first half. Cheyenne Moore had nine first-half points and didn't score in the second.
Collison missed the first six games after spraining his left knee in an exhibition game. He received a loud ovation when he first came onto the floor 7:52 in the game.
UCLA's Alfred Aboya, who broke a bone under his right eye last Friday, played wearing bright yellow goggles. He scored six points.
