UCLA took down Texas, 65-63, in “The Showcase at Houston” at Reliant Stadium on Saturday.

The struggling Bruins, who would have been predicted to wipe the floor with the Longhorns in the preseason, stopped the bleeding of their tumultuous start to the season by bearing down on Texas with top-scoring freshmen Jordan Adams and Shabazz Muhammad.

The Longhorns have had their share of early-season struggles and disappointment, and have now fallen once again after a blowout loss against No. 15 Georgetown, falling to 5-4 on the season.

The Bruins improve to 6-3 after this afternoon’s tight matchup and now look forward to their toughest nonconference matchup against No. 12 Missouri.
