Welcome to renovated Pauley Pavilion. The arena is beautiful and mostly empty at the moment, like it has been for much of the year. We’ll get the game thread going on the jump. The game is on ESPN and Bill Walton is on the call, so prepare yourself accordingly.

> Wilcox drove and scored with 10 seconds to go, but Larry Drew II hit from the left elbow at the buzzer to beat Washington 59-57.

> UCLA leads 56-55 with 37 seconds to go and Shabazz Muhammad going to the line for two.

> Under-4 tiemout and UCLA leads 51-48 with Drew II going to the line.

> UCLA leads 45-43 at the under-8 timeout. Kyle Anderson just picked up his fourth foul with 7:56 to go in the game and is coming off the floor.

> We’re tied 39-39. N’Diaye has 15 rebounds, one short of his career-high 16. The important thing for Washington is not a pretty output, but a road win against what is considered one of the better teams in the conference. It is right there with 11:24 to go.

> Washington is off to a good start in the second half thanks to Aziz N’Diaye. He has back-to-back hoops and 12 boards in the game already. Washington leads 36-32 with 16:42 to go.

> Terrible defense to end the half and Powell hits a 3 to tie the game 28-28 after Wilcox committed a charge with 4.3 seconds left in the half. Washington went on a 7-0 run to take a 28-25 lead. The Huskies had 13 turnovers in the first half and UCLA has 13 points off them. Wilcox and Gaddy have seven points apiece. Muhammad has 12, but almost all off loose ball stickbacks.

> It appears everyone is staying and continuing to watch the game despite the teams combining for 19 turnovers. Washington is 9-for-24 from the field and UCLA is 10-for-29.

> Gaddy scores and cuts UCLA’s lead to 23-21 in a game that keeps getting uglier.

> At the under-8 timeout, UCLA leads 17-16. Scott Suggs has three fouls, Andrew Andrews two and Washington is doing numerous silly things. C.J. Wilcox led the break by dribbling up the wing and his pass to the middle was easily picked off. Shawn Kemp continues to close Kyle Anderson out deep and Lorenzo Romar continues to tell him not to.

> This game is brutal so far. Washington has seven turnovers and eight points. Hikeem Stewart checked into the game UCLA leads 11-8 with 11:48 to go.

> Under-16 timeout and the game is tied 6-6 with 15:24 to go. Turnovers, missed shots, lots of ugliness early.

> Washington goes with the recently changed lineup: Gaddy, Suggs, Wilcox, Kemp and N’Diaye. Larry Drew II, Jordan Adams, Shabazz Muhammad, Kyle Anderson and Travis Wear for the Bruins.
