SHANGHAI - The UCLA basketball team completed its three-game tour in China with a 92-63 victory over the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) on Tuesday at Yuan Shen Sports Center.

Travis Wear led the Bruins with 26 points, while Kyle Anderson logged a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Wear connected on 10 of 12 shots and grabbed eight rebounds.

Jordan Adams scored 18 points on 7-of-15 shooting, and Tyler Lamb rounded out UCLA's list of double-digit scorers with 15 points and a game-leading six steals.

"The Shanghai Sharks are a good team, and we know that they were missing some players," Travis Wear said in a press conference following the game. "But, they gave us a fight and it was an awesome experience being able to enjoy this camaraderie and the way that this community has embraced us over the past week."

UCLA led the contest the entire way, opening a 4-0 lead on baskets from David Wear and Tyler Lamb before using a 6-0 scoring run to secure a 10-3 advantage in the opening minutes of the first quarter.

The Bruins led by a 22-12 margin after the first quarter and entered halftime with a 46-30 cushion. The Sharks drew within seven points in the third quarter, reducing UCLA's advantage to 55-48 with 3:01 to play in the frame. The Bruins answered with an alleyoop dunk from Travis Wear, who received a perfectly-executed lob from Anderson.

UCLA closed the third quarter with a 63-50 cushion and used a 19-2 scoring run to end the game, pushing its lead to a game-high 29 points as the buzzer sounded.

Following the game, UCLA's team was met by former Houston Rockets standout Yao Ming, co-owner of the Shanghai Sharks. The Bruins gathered for a team photo with Yao, as numerous photographers congregated for the unique photo opportunity.

The Bruins open their 2012-13 season in a renovated Pauley Pavilion against Indiana State on Friday, Nov. 9. Fans can purchase season tickets and mini-plans online by visiting uclabruins.com or clicking here.
