UCLA basketball: Bruins fall short in wild finish against Kansas

December 2, 2010 |  8:19 pm

It was nearly the night the lights went out in Kansas.

UCLA put the Jayhawks' epic home winning streak in serious jeopardy, with Bruins sophomore forward Tyler Honeycutt making a three-pointer with four seconds left to tie the score.

But Malcolm Lee fouled Mario Little with seven-tenths of a second left, Little made the first of two free throws and Kansas held on for a 77-76 victory that stretched its school-record winning streak on its home floor to 64 games.

Honeycutt finished with a career-high 33 points, including a pair of four-point plays.
