TEMPE, Ariz. - Jordan Adams scored a team-leading 19 points and Shabazz Muhammad finished with 18 as UCLA dropped a 78-60 decision at Arizona State on Saturday afternoon.

UCLA (16-5, 6-2 Pac-12) could not overcome a 39-33 halftime deficit and was limited to 34.7 percent shooting from the field, the Bruins' lowest output of the season.

Arizona State (16-4, 5-2) received a game-high 23 points and 11 rebounds from Carrick Felix, while Jordan Bachynski tallied 22 points and 15 rebounds as a dominant inside presence for the host Sun Devils.

ASU's Jahii Carson and Evan Gordon each scored 12 points. The Sun Devils outrebounded the Bruins by a 52-32 margin and blocked 10 shots.

UCLA guard Larry Drew II rounded out the Bruins' list of double-digit scorers, contributing 12 points while adding four assists.

The Bruins never led by more than four points in the first three minutes of the game, before Arizona State took a 7-6 cushion and led the rest of the contest. UCLA was able to reduced ASU's double-digit second half cushion to just nine points with 2:18 to play, but four free throws from Carson in the game's final 2:30 help Arizona State preserve a substantial advantage.

UCLA lost for just the second time in its last 13 contests.

The Bruins return to action against crosstown rival USC on Wednesday evening. Game time in Pauley Pavilion is slated for 7 p.m. The game will be televised on Pac-12 Networks.
