LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jordan Adams scored 20 of his 24 points in the second half, and UCLA rallied from an 11-point deficit to beat Oregon State 74-69 Sunday night to snap its only two-game losing streak of the season.

Kyle Anderson added 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists for the Bruins (22-7, 11-5 Pac-12), who keptOregon State from sweeping them for the first time since 1988. UCLA leads the series 90-36 and is 51-7 against the Beavers in Los Angeles.

Adams and Anderson returned to action after being suspended for Thursday night's 87-83 double-overtime loss to Oregon for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Roberto Nelson, the Pac-12's leading scorer, led the Beavers (15-13, 7-9) with 23 points. Devon Collier added 15 points and Eric Moreland had 13 rebounds to lead Oregon State to a 36-31 advantage on the boards.

Oregon State beat UCLA 71-67 in Corvallis four weeks ago.
