ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Lonzo Ball had 16 points and 10 assists to help No. 14 UCLA beat Texas A&M 74-67 on Sunday as the Bruins won the Wooden Legacy championship game.
Issac Hamilton scored all 17 of his points in the first half, to lead UCLA (7-0), which beat Portland, New Mexico and Texas A&M to win the title.
Ball, who was named the tournament’s MVP, had 47 points and 28 assists over the three games.
Texas A&M (4-2) had a lead at 63-62 late in the second half, but was done in by turnovers and missed shots in the final minutes.
Admon Gilder led the Aggies with 17 points, and Tyler Davis added 16.
Ball missed six of his first seven shots but still founds ways to help the Bruins, especially as a facilitator. The UCLA guard set the tournament record for assists.
