LOS ANGELES — Lazeric Jones scored 21 points and UCLA pulled away with a late 10-0 run to beat Stanford 72-61 Thursday night, extending the Cardinal's winless streak in Los Angeles.

Travis Wear added 13 points and Jerime Anderson 12 for the Bruins (14-10, 7-5 Pac-12), who improved to 11-3 at home and have won four of their last five overall.

Stanford (16-8, 6-6) hasn't won a road game against the Bruins or Southern California since 2004-05, going 0 for 13 in that stretch. The Cardinal visits the Trojans on Sunday.

Chasson Randle was the only Stanford player in double figures, with 16 points. The Cardinals committed 22 turnovers, leading to 28 points for UCLA, which had 15 steals and 11 blocked shots.

Stanford has lost two in a row and five of its last six while falling out of the league race after being tied for first in mid-January.
