[flashvideo file=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmC3y_4tVuw /] After a close first half, the UCLA Bruins found their game in the second half and defeated host Chaminade 92-60 in Game 3 of the EA Sports Maui Invitational basketball tournament.

“We’re glad to get a win under our belt,” said Coach Ben Howland during a post-game press conference. Howland credited senior Jerime Anderson with getting some big shots for the Bruins, hitting four for six from three point range.

Although he didn’t score a point, the Bruins’ Reeves Nelson was lauded for boosting the energy of his teammates.  “He really helped change the game to our way with him coming in and giving us energy and playing really hard,” said Howland.

UCLA advances to play in a 4:30 p.m. (HST) game against the winner of tonight’s Georgetown/Kansas match-up, which rounds out day one of the three-day tournament.
