LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- For the second straight season, Arizona handed UCLA a humiliating home loss.
Sparked by the trio of Channing Frye, Salim Stoudamire and Hassan Adams, the eighth-ranked Wildcats coasted to a 97-72 rout of UCLA in a Pac-10 Conference mismatch.
Coming off Thursday's disappointing loss at Southern California, the Wildcats (11-2, 3-1 Pac-10) took all the suspense out of this one early, never trailing and leading by as many as 30 points in the second half.
Frye dominated the interior, scoring 25 points and grabbing 10 rebound. Stoudamire added 25 points and Adams 23 and nine rebounds.
"I think we did awesome, but it's not the first game," said Frye about rebounding from Thursday's loss. "It's the second and third."
It marked the second straight season that the Wildcats embarrassed the Bruins on their home floor. Last season, the Wildcats handed the Bruins their worst loss in school history at Pauley Pavilion with an 87-52 rout.
Dijon Thompson scored 19 points to lead UCLA (9-4, 5-1), which had been one of the conference's biggest surprises before being brought back to reality.
"We knew they would come in with a sense of urgency after two straight losses," UCLA coach Ben Howland said. "They took it right to us. You hate to play a really good team coming off a loss because that gives them extra motivation."
Adams, who scored just 11 points on 3-of-9 shooting in the loss to Southern California, came out with much more energy in this one. The Los Angeles native scored 13 points in the opening 20 minutes, helping the Wildcats to a 48-37 advantage.
Frye added 12 points and Stoudamire 11 in the half for the Wildcats, who shot 57 percent (20-of-35). They barely slowed down in the second half and shot 54 percent (37-of-68) overall.
"I didn't force anything," said Stoudamire, who made 9-of-14 shots. "I just let the game come to me."
The Bruins did pull within 53-46 early in the second half. But the Wildcats responded with a 13-2 run that took just over two minutes to put the game out of reach. Andre Iguodola highlighted the surge with driving dunk.
