Cal no match for No. 23 UCLA 

Jordan Adams scored 28 points and No. 23 UCLA returned to the national rankings with an impressive 86-66 victory against Cal on Wednesday night to keep pace in the Pac-12 title chase.

Kyle Anderson had 11 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Bruins (21-5, 10-3), who won their fourth straight game and seventh in eight. UCLA remained a game behind Pac-12 leader Arizona, which won in overtime at Utah.

Jordan Mathews scored 16 off the bench for cold-shooting Cal (17-9, 8-5), which couldn’t pull off the same spectacular finish at raucous Haas Pavilion as it did in stunning then-No. 1 and unbeaten Arizona 60-58 on Feb. 1.

Adams shot 12 for 19 and scored five straight points midway through the second half that put the Bruins ahead 71-50 with 9:24 remaining. He also had six rebounds and five assists. Travis Wear added 13 points.
