After going into halftime with just a two-point lead over Cal Poly, UCLA started the second half white hot, eventually building a lead of 18 points midway through the second half.
However, the Bruins couldn’t maintain their momentum as the Mustangs began chipping away at the lead until they eventually hit six 3-pointers to tie up the ball game at 65 apiece with under two minutes to play.
Cal Poly established a two-point lead after tipping in a missed shot and on its ensuing possession was able to collect yet another offensive rebound, forcing UCLA to foul with under a minute to play.
After tying up the game with 0:17 to play in the game, sophomore guard Norman Powell committed a foul at midcourt, sending Cal Poly to the line, and the Mustangs took advantage, once again taking a two-point lead.
On the last play of the game, UCLA was unable to score and the Bruins fell to the Mustangs 70-68 for their second loss of the year.
