BOULDER, Colo. - Travis Wear scored 14 of his career-high 23 points in the second half and Jordan Adams' two free throws with seven seconds left sealed UCLA's ninth straight victory, 78-75, at Colorado on Saturday.

UCLA (14-3, 4-0 Pac-12) also received 18 points from Jordan Adams and 14 from Shabazz Muhammad. Kyle Anderson registered his fifth double-double of the season, totaling 12 points and a team-best 10 rebounds.

The Bruins' nine-game winning streak is their longest since winning 10 straight during the 2008-09 season.

Spencer Dinwiddie led Colorado (11-5, 1-3) with 23 points. The host Buffaloes also received 18 points each from Josh Scott and Askia Booker.

UCLA improved to 6-1 this season in games decided by five points or fewer. The Bruins improved to 2-0 on the road this season, after having defeated Utah in Salt Lake City, 57-53, on Thursday night.

The Bruins led at halftime, 35-34, and pushed their margin to 40-34 early in the second quarter before Colorado tie the game, 42-42, with 16:09 remaining.

Leading 44-43, UCLA used a 17-5 scoring run over the next 6:49 to secure a 61-48 margin. That scoring run was capped by a three-pointer from Adams, who was fouled on the shot and converted the ensuing free throw.

Colorado chipped away, closing its deficit to 66-61 with 2:15 left in regulation. The Buffaloes got as close as one point, trailing UCLA by a 76-75 margin with seven seconds left, before Jordan Adams made two free throws.

Booker's three-point attempt to tie the game in the final seconds was unsuccessful.

Game Notes: This marks the fourth time in head coach Ben Howland's 10 seasons at UCLA in which the Bruins have opened conference play with a 4-0 mark (also in 2003-04, 2007-08, 2008-09) ...
