    LOS ANGELES -- Malcolm Lee scored 16 points and Reeves Nelson had 15 as UCLA beat Montana State 75-59 on Tuesday night.

    Joshua Smith had nine points and nine rebounds, and Tyler Honeycutt added nine points for the Bruins (7-4), who used a 22-4 run to pull away for their fourth win in a row.

    UCLA was efficient in shooting 48.1 percent (26 of 54) while turning the ball over just 10 times.

    The Bruins saw a 15-point lead disappear and trailed by three points early in the second half before turning up the speed for an array of fast-break baskets.

    Erik Rush scored 13 points and Tre Johnson added 12 for Montana State (6-6), which dropped to 0-6 in road games.

    The Bobcats opened the second half with a 10-2 spurt to grab their first lead. UCLA later responded with 12 straight points, with six coming from Honeycutt, for the 55-46 advantage.
