LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- UCLA never realized Dan Gadzuric would be missed this much.
Jason Keep collected 30 points and 16 rebounds to make Brad Holland's return to Westwood a memorable one as San Diego posted an 86-81 overtime victory over the 14th-ranked Bruins.
UCLA (0-1) lost the services of the 6-11 Gadzuric, a four-year starter who is currently starting for the Milwaukee Bucks. His replacement is 6-10 T.J. Cummings, who is more of a power forward. Keep simply decimated Cummings inside.
"It was a hard effort from the whole team," Keep said. "Everyone looks at me because I dropped 30, but this is all about the guys that are all on the floor with me."
"When I was guarding him, I did the best I could," Cummings said. "We have to keep our spirits up because we play Duke on Saturday."
UCLA senior forward Jason Kapono disappeared down the stretch. Kapono scored just four of his 17 points after halftime, fouled out in the extra session and later complained of cramping.
Holland was an honorable mention All-American with the Bruins in 1979 and also served as an assistant at UCLA from 1988-92. He brought a team to Pauley Pavilion that featured four seniors, including Keep and Jason Blair.
"It's a big win for our program," Holland said. "We're trying to climb the ladder in college basketball. This might be the biggest win in the history of the program."
The Toreros defeated a ranked team for just the second time. The first was a win over Gonzaga in 1999.
Blair's 3-pointer opened the scoring in overtime and gave San Diego (2-0) a 76-73 lead. Trailing 84-81, UCLA had a chance to tie, but Dijon Thompson misfired on an off-balance 3-pointer with eight seconds left.
UCLA coach Steve Lavin fell to 3-4 in season openers. The loss came off the heels of a pair of exhibition losses, including a 25-point defeat to a team that featured players from lower-level Division I programs.
"It's a work in progress," Lavin said. "We have a long way to go to be a good team. We're going to have a lot of games like this down the road."
Blair had 17 points and 15 rebounds as San Diego held a commanding 49-33 advantage on the boards. Keep and Blair combined for 13 of the Toreros' 21 offensive rebounds.
The Bruins never trailed in the second half and led by as many as eight points on a pair of free throws by Josiah Johnson with eight minutes left for a 65-57 edge. San Diego finally drew even on Roy Morris' 3-pointer for a 71-71 tie with 1:48 to go in regulation.
Cummings made two free throws 15 seconds later, before Keep answered with a layup with 76 seconds to go. Kapono misfired badly on a jumper with 45 seconds remaining and barely drew iron on another attempt in the waning seconds.
"Those are shots I make throughout the fall, winter and spring," Kapono said. "I felt like I didn't have any legs."
Thompson led UCLA with 21 points and Bozeman added 13. The Bruins shot just 37 percent (14-of-38) after halftime and displayed little depth, using their starters for 193 out of a possible 225 minutes.
The Bruins dropped their third straight home opener.
