Top-ranked UK falls to UCLA

Posted: Updated:

 LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Thomas Welsh led five players in double figures with 21 points and UCLA knocked off No. 1 Kentucky 87-77 on Thursday night in the Bruins' first victory over a top-ranked team since 2003.

   Bryce Alford and Isaac Hamilton added 15 points each, Tony Parker had 11 and Aaron Holiday 10 for the Bruins (5-3), who led almost the entire game and shot 53 percent from the field. They last beat a No. 1 team on March 13, 2003, defeating Arizona 96-89 in overtime.

   Some fans dashed onto the court to celebrate at the buzzer, but the majority were held back by security.

   Isaiah Briscoe led Kentucky (7-1) with 20 points. Jamal Murray added 17 and Derek Willis added 11. They lost a regular-season game for the first time since March 8, 2014, at Florida.
