Los Angeles • 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 kept Oregon 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. The Bruins trailed 42-31 early in the second half when they suddenly came alive, outscoring the Beavers 21-6 for a 52-48 lead, and a 3-pointer by Adams with 7:19 left made it 59-53. The Beavers weren't closer than four points after that. Two foul shots by Bryce Alford and another pair by Anderson made it 67-58 with 58.9 seconds left.

The difference of the game was at the foul line — UCLA was 21 of 23 and Oregon State was 14 of 23. Pac-12 standings
