With his teammates stuck in another offensive rut, scrounging for points amid a slew of clanked shots and turnovers, Johnny Juzang pulled back the curtain on a dazzling scoring display.
The UCLA guard’s array of jumpers led to 13 consecutive points for his team late in the first half Saturday and 21 points by halftime. There was more to come. Juzang buried a jumper with less than a minute left, nudging the Bruins toward a slump-busting 64-61 victory over Washington at Alaska Airlines Arena in Seattle.
Juzang finished with a career-high 32 points, making 12 of 23 shots and five of 12 three-pointers, to help UCLA (14-5 overall, 10-3 Pac-12 Conference) end its two-game losing streak.
