LOS ANGELES, (AP) -- Reeves Nelson scored a career-high 21 points and UCLA defeated Delaware State 66-49 Sunday.

The Bruins have won three of their last four games, but their 5-7 record leaves them last in the Pac-10 in nonconference play. UCLA opens its Pac-10 schedule against Arizona State on Thursday at home.

Marcus Neal led the Hornets (4-6) with 15 points.

In what started out as a battle of jump-shooters, the Bruins took over midway through the first half when they started taking the ball inside to Nelson, a 6-foot-8 freshman center.
