STANFORD, Calif. - Shabazz Muhammad scored a game-high 25 points and Kyle Anderson registered his seventh double-double of the season (18 points, 13 rebounds) as UCLA defeated Stanford, 88-80, at Maples Pavilion on Saturday afternoon.
UCLA swept the two-game regular-season series against Stanford (15-11, 6-7) with Saturday's victory.
Winners of three of their last four games, the Bruins owned a 43-38 advantage at halftime, but Stanford tied the contest, 58-58, with 11:35 to play in regulation. UCLA never trailed in the second half, pushing its margin to 70-65 with 5:17 to play.
Muhammad converted a four-point play with 1:52 left in the second half, doubling the Bruins' lead from 75-71 to 79-71. The freshman from Las Vegas scored eight of his game-high 25 points in the game's final 1:52.
Stanford's Dwight Powell scored 22 points for the Cardinal, leading a group of four players who scored in double figures. Josh Huestis tallied 11 points and 12 rebounds, Aaron Bright logged 19 points and Chasson Randle finished with 17 points.
Drew II recorded seven assists to push his Pac-12-leading assist total to 199, tied with two former players for seventh place on UCLA's single-season assists list (Darren Collison in 2007 and Darrick Martin in 1990).
Anderson registered his first double-double since Jan. 19, 2013, in a 76-67 loss at home to Oregon.
Stanford lost for the third time in its last four games. UCLA recorded its first season sweep of the Cardinal since the 2010-11 season and has now won five of the last six games against Stanford.
