LOS ANGELES -- Lazeric Jones scored 18 points, Tyler Lamb added 16 and UCLA routed Washington State 78-46 on Thursday night.
The triumph came a day after the release of a Sports Illustrated report that painted a picture of disarray, detailing a lack of discipline and declining moral at the once-storied program.
David Wear scored all 13 of his points after halftime and Jerime Anderson added nine assists for the Bruins (17-13, 10-7 Pac-12), who shot a season-best 61.2 percent and made 10 of 14 3-pointers.
Brock Motum scored 18 as the only player in double-figures for Washington State (14-15, 6-11).
The Bruins played inspired, particularly on the defensive end, scoring 22 points off turnovers and holding the Cougars to 38.1 percent shooting.
UCLA won for the seventh straight time in the series.
