SAN DIEGO — Jordan Adams scored 21 points and Norman Powell added 15 in his hometown to lead fourth-seeded UCLA to a 76-59 victory over 13th-seeded Tulsa on Friday night, spoiling the NCAA tournament head coaching debut of Danny Manning.
UCLA (27-8) advances to Sunday’s third round in the South region against 12th-seeded Stephen F. Austin, which upset No. 5 VCU 77-75 in overtime.
In his first year at Westwood, Steve Alford coached the Bruins to just their third win in the NCAA tournament since 2009. It came in the city where John Wooden won the last of his 10 national championships, in 1975.
Tulsa (21-13) had its 11-game winning streak snapped. Manning led Kansas to the 1988 title and won another championship as a Jayhawks assistant coach six years ago.
