Dylan Andrews Shines as UCLA Bruins Secure Convincing Victory Over USC Trojans

In an impressive display of skill and teamwork, Dylan Andrews, the sophomore guard for UCLA Bruins, led his team to a triumphant 65-50 win against USC Trojans at the Galen Center on Saturday night. Prior to this standout performance, Andrews was averaging 9.6 points per game, but against the Trojans, he took center stage, scoring a game-high 20 points.

This victory marked UCLA’s first win at USC since 2018, and it was a commanding performance that saw them hold their rivals to their lowest point total this season. The Bruins dominated almost every aspect of the game, outshooting the Trojans and capitalizing on 15 offensive rebounds, resulting in 17 crucial second-chance points.

Underlining their dominance on the court, UCLA out-rebounded the Trojans 43-29, with sophomore center Adem Bona contributing significantly with 10 rebounds alongside his 10 points. Junior wing Lazar Stefanovic added to the scoring spree with 17 points, maintaining a perfect 9-for-9 record from the free-throw line.

Despite facing a relentless UCLA, USC’s leading scorer turned out to be reserve guard Oziya Sellers with 10 points, while returning All-Pac-12 starter Boogie Ellis was limited to just eight points.

The Bruins showcased their depth as several players who don’t typically grab headlines made impactful contributions. Freshman Devin Williams demonstrated versatility on both ends of the court, contributing to UCLA’s commanding first-half performance.

A pivotal 17-2 run in the opening half, with less than two minutes to play, propelled the Bruins to a comfortable 11-point lead at halftime. Dylan Andrews’ stellar performance and the team’s collective effort underscored UCLA’s dominance in this decisive victory over the USC Trojans.
