No. 16 UCLA Survives Drexel Scare, 57-56

Nov. 25, 2005

Box Score

NEW YORK (AP) - Jordan Farmar made the second of two free throws with 0.8 seconds to play to give No. 16 UCLA a 57-56 victory over Drexel on Friday in the third-place game of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

UCLA (4-1) had tied the game at 56 with 6.8 seconds left on two of three free throws by Arron Afflalo. Drexel (3-2) then turned the ball over when Bashir Mason couldn't handle a hard inbounds pass from Chaz Crawford.

Farmar was fouled by Mason and the buzzer sounded but officials reviewed the tape and put 0.8 seconds back on the clock. Farmar, who had a career-high 28 points in the semifinal loss to No. 11 Memphis, didn't even hit the rim with his first throw but his second bounded around the rim and in.

Drexel's long inbounds pass was grabbed by UCLA's Lorenzo Mata to end the game.

Drexel was coming off a 78-68 semifinal loss to No. 1 Duke, a game that saw the Dragons within six points with one minute remaining.

Afflalo had 18 points for the Bruins, while Cedric Bozeman added 10. Farmar was 1-for-10 from the field and finished with six points and eight assists.

Kenell Sanchez had 14 points for the Dragons, who have a game Saturday at 4 p.m. against Penn, while Frank Elegar and Mason each had 13.

Sanchez's basket underneath with 3:49 to go gave Drexel a 56-51 lead and it was the Dragons' last points of the game.

Afflalo hit the last of his four 3-pointers with 2:27 left to make it 56-54 and neither scored until Afflalo's free throws with 6.8 seconds to go.

UCLA outrebounded Drexel 29-28 but the Dragons had 13 offensive rebounds with Crawford grabbing four to account for all of his eight points.
