    ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Ravern Johnson scored a career-high 29 points, Jarvis Varnado blocked seven shots and Mississippi State rolled to a 72-54 victory over UCLA in the Wooden Classic on Saturday.

    Varnado also had 13 points and 11 rebounds as the Bulldogs (7-2) won their fourth straight, taking a 21-point lead at halftime and cruising to Mississippi State's first-ever victory over UCLA.

    Michael Roll scored 17 points and Malcolm Lee had 16 for the Bruins (2-6), who lost their fifth straight in discouraging fashion.

    After hanging with top-ranked Kansas last weekend, UCLA shot poorly and couldn't stay close to the Bulldogs during the second game of a doubleheader honoring John Wooden, the 99-year-old former Bruins coach.
