LOS ANGELES (AP) Jordan Adams scored 21 points in his college debut and No. 13 UCLA defeated Indiana State 86-59 in its season opener on Friday night shortly after finding out star recruit Shabazz Muhammad was ruled ineligible by the NCAA.
Adams, the school's first-ever signee out of vaunted Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, was 7 of 12 from the floor and had eight rebounds off the bench for the Bruins (1-0). Travis Wear added 17 points and his twin brother David Wear had 13 points and 10 rebounds.
The long-awaited decision about Muhammad overshadowed the first game in new Pauley Pavilion, which opened after an 18-month, $132 million renovation. He watched the game from the bench dressed in a blue UCLA sweat suit along with a crowd of 13,513 - 287 short of a sellout.
In the closing minutes, fans chanted ``Free Shabazz.''
