From Wednesday night’s exhibition play:

– UCLA: The Bruins needed a 3-point basket from junior Mustafa Abdul-Hamid with 16.1 seconds left to beat NAIA opponent Concordia 62-61. UCLA, which trailed by as many as eight points, got 17 points and 11 rebounds from sophomore Drew Gordon, the former Archbishop Mitty HS-San Jose star.

Senior guard Michael Roll (ankle) and sophomore point guard Jerime Anderson (groin) sat out the game.

WASHINGTON: Things went a bit more smoothly for the defending Pac-10 regular-season champs, who routed Division II Central Washington 77-48.  The Huskies shot just 38 percent and missed 19 free throws, but got 18 points from sophomore guard Isaiah Thomas and 15 from senior forward Quincy Pondexter.

Highly touted freshman guard Abdul Gaddy played 24 minutes off the bench and had one point and six assists.

– ARIZONA: The Wildcats whipped Division II Augustana 92-76 in coach Sean Miller’s debut, getting 19 points from forward Jamelle Horne and 14 from freshman Derrick Williams. Senior point guard Nic Wise, who had been nursing an ankle sprain, had 12 points and five assists in 19 minutes.
