UCLA knocks off ranked BYU in Wooden Classic

Reeves Nelson set a career high with 23 points in UCLA's first quality win of the season.  We really needed a win over a ranked team before conference play since the committees look for those when they select ncaa tournament teams.  Also, hopefully Nelson snaps out of his funk with this breakout game - Reeves' game-clinching emphatic dunk (in which a BYU player actually got his hand on the ball) might be the play of the season so far.

Overall, causing 19 turnovers and "only" committing 10 was a great sign for us.  Honeycutt and Jones both made big 3 pointers down the stretch to maintain our narrow lead.  It was just fitting that we won our first big game in the Wooden Classic.
