LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ryan McDade had 22 points and 12 rebounds and Northern Arizona hit nine 3-pointers in the second half to upset UCLA 67-63 Tuesday night for the Lumberjacks' fifth consecutive victory.

Northern Arizona improved to 6-2 for the first time since the 1985-86 season with its first victory over a Pac-10 team since 1998-99.

The Bruins (2-3), who had won their last two games by an average of 30 points, suffered their second stunning loss just four days before they travel to No. 19 Kansas. San Diego beat them 86-81 in overtime to open what has been a rocky season. The Bruins' troubles began even earlier, with two defeats in exhibition games for the first time since the early 1990s.

Aaron Bond added 14 points, Kelly Golob had 13 points and Kyle Feuerbach had 12 points, including four 3-pointers in a row in the second half, for the Lumberjacks.

T.J. Cummings scored 16 points and Dijon Thompson added 14 points for the Bruins, who led by 10 points in the first half and then trailed most of the second half.

Northern Arizona trailed 32-26 at halftime, but stunned the Bruins by hitting three consecutive 3-pointers to open the final 20 minutes.

After UCLA tied the game at 44 on an inside basket by Andre Patterson with 12:48 remaining, the Bruins never led again.

The Lumberjacks, who shot 69 percent from 3-point range in the second half, kept firing away without any hands in their faces. Bond hit a 3-pointer, then Feuerbach hit four consecutive 3-pointers to give Northern Arizona its largest lead 60-52 with 5:21 remaining.

A small contingent of Northern Arizona fans could be heard loudly in the crowd of 5,736 as UCLA's supporters watched mostly in silence.

Cummings scored eight of UCLA's final 13 points, including a tip-in of Jason Kapono's 3-pointer that bounced off the rim, to get the Bruins to 64-63 with 34 seconds left.

After Bond hit two free throws for a 66-63 lead, Kapono missed a 3-pointer, McDade grabbed the rebound and got fouled by Thompson with 2.8 seconds left. He made the first and missed the second to close out the victory.

The Lumberjacks had only nine healthy players available and three of them did all the scoring in the first half.

Northern Arizona controlled the boards 29-25 and its 19 turnovers were three more than UCLA.
