LAS VEGAS (AP) Jordan Adams and Zach Lavine each scored 21 points to lead No. 19 UCLA to a 105-84 victory over Nevada on Thursday in the opening round of the Las Vegas Invitational.

Five players scored in double figures for the Bruins (6-0), who quickly erased an early five-point deficit and built a double-digit lead less than 10 minutes into the game.

UCLA's lead got as high as 19 in the first half, when the Bruins shot 16 of 25 (64 percent) from the field and 17 of 18 at the free throw line. They finished at 60.7 percent from the floor, including 10 of 20 from 3-point range.

Deonte Burton and Jerry Evans Jr. each scored 20 points for Nevada (3-4), while Michael Perez added 18.

UCLA will play Northwestern on Friday, and the Wolfpack will face Missouri.
