LOS ANGELES (AP) Aaron Holiday scored 20 points and UCLA defeated Utah 83-64 on Thursday night to stay atop the Pac-12 standings.

Holiday has been on a roll since league play began nearly two weeks ago, averaging 17.8 points. He also leads the Bruins (13-4, 4-1 Pac-12) in scoring with 19.4 points.

Kris Wilkes added 19 points for the Bruins, who shot 52 percent from 3-point range. Holiday was perfect from long range, making all four of his shots.

David Collette scored 15 points and Justin Bibbins added 12 points for the Utes (10-6, 2-3).

UCLA never trailed, leading by eight at halftime and pulling away to its largest lead of 21 points in the second half.

The Utes tried to get back into the game with four 3-pointers during a four-minute stretch, but the Bruins scored nearly every time down the court.

UCLA's Prince Ali had 13 points and freshman Jaylen Hands scored all of his 12 points in the second half, making 4-of-4 free throws and grabbing five rebounds.

BIG PICTURE

Utah: The Utes are going in the wrong direction, having lost three in a row after winning three straight.

UCLA: The Bruins have won six of seven and things have settled down after three players were detained for shoplifting on the team's season-opening trip to China, including LiAngelo Ball who withdrew from school.

UP NEXT

Utah: Visits USC on Sunday.

UCLA: Hosts Colorado on Saturday.
