LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jordan Adams scored 21 points, including seven straight during a 14-0 second-half run, to lead No. 22 UCLA past Sacramento State 86-50 on Monday night.

Adams has led the Bruins (3-0) in scoring in each of their games after breaking his foot to end last season.

Zach LaVine and Norman Powell added 14 points each, David Wear had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Tony Parker scored 10 points. Kyle Anderson had a career-high eight assists in the first of three games for the Bruins this week.

Dylan Garrity scored 18 points - all on a career-high six 3-pointers - to lead Sacramento State (1-2).

The Hornets, of the Big Sky Conference, fell to 0-13 against ranked opponents since joining Division I in 1991-92, and 3-36 all-time against Pac-12 schools.

The Bruins led 45-29 when they put together the game's biggest run. They outscored the Hornets 27-6, including a 14-0 run, to extend their lead to 72-35.

Six UCLA players scored in the spurt, including eight points by LaVine, whose dunk enlivened another sparse crowd at Pauley Pavilion. Adams' seven straight points came on a 3-pointer and two layups, including one off his own steal. Anderson added five points.

The Bruins easily exceeded their 81.5-point scoring average while holding the Hornets to 34 percent shooting. Sacramento State had 18 turnovers.

Kory Alford saw action in the final minutes, joining his brother Bryce on the court. They are the sons of new UCLA coach Steve Alford.

The Bruins used a 16-6 run to end the first half leading 36-23.

The Hornets led by one point and tied the game once early on before UCLA gradually pulled away to a 14-point lead. The Hornets never made it to the free throw line, where the Bruins were 12 of 18 and five times missed hitting the front end of a 1-and-1.

UCLA remained without starter Travis Wear, who continues to recover from an appendectomy last month.
