LOS ANGELES - T.J. Cummings had 18 points and 11 rebounds and UCLA ended its six-game losing streak with a 80-75 victory over Washington on Saturday night.

The Huskies (10-9, 5-6 Pac-10) had their longest winning streak since 1999 snapped at five games. They've lost 18 straight at Pauley Pavilion, where they last won in 1987.

Washington made a late run after being down 11 points with 2:52 remaining. UCLA's Cedric Bozeman turned the ball over on a baseline pass, then Trevor Ariza fouled Brandon Roy with 38 seconds left. Roy made both free throws to get the Huskies to 76-75.

Washington used a full-court press, but the Bruins got the ball down the floor and Dijon Thompson was fouled with 30 seconds left. He made both for a 78-75 lead.

After a timeout, Mike Jensen's 3-point attempt turned into an airball with 18 seconds left and the Huskies fouled Bozeman. He hit both and the Bruins led 80-75.

Nate Robinson's 3-pointer hit only air as time expired.

Roy scored a career-high 30 points for the Huskies, who are coached by former UCLA assistant Lorenzo Romar. Roy was their only double-figure scorer. Nate Robinson was held to nine points.

Ariza added 12 points, Thompson had 11 points and backup center Michael Fey scored 10 points - his first double-figure game in nearly a month.

UCLA (10-9, 6-5) got an important boost from reserves Ryan Walcott and Janou Rubin during a 10-0 run that briefly broke the game open in the second half. Walcott finished with eight points and Rubin added seven.

The Huskies scored eight straight points to tie the game at 38 early in the second half. The teams traded baskets over the next three minutes, with Washington's Tre Simmons hitting a basket that tied it for the last time at 47 with 12:24 remaining.

In the Bruins' 10-0 run, Ariza, Rubin and Walcott combined for all the points that gave UCLA a 57-47 lead.

The Huskies closed within six points on a 3-pointer by Will Conroy with 4:24 remaining. UCLA pushed its lead back to 11 points with a 5-0 spurt before the Huskies made their comeback.

The Bruins led by 11 points in the first half when they shot 47 percent and committed just six turnovers.
