LOS ANGELES (AP) - Malcolm Lee and Lazeric Jones scored 20 points apiece to lead UCLA to a 74-73 victory over UC Irvine Thursday night.

The Bruins led by as many as 14 points in the second half, but had to hold off a late run by the Anteaters to preserve their fifth consecutive victory.

Darren Moore cut the Bruins' lead to 74-73 with a 3-pointer with 7.4 seconds remaining. UCLA's Tyler Lamb missed two free throws with 6.2 seconds to go, giving UC Irvine a chance to win it.

Patrick Rembert dribbled down the court but was trapped by UCLA's defense and threw a last-ditch pass to Chris McNealy as time ran out.

The Bruins (8-4) were playing without offensive leader Tyler Honeycutt, out with a sprained right shoulder, but had just enough to pull out the victory.

Eric Wise led the Anteaters (6-6) with 16 points.
