NCAA Tournament, In Progress: No. 7 UCLA Vs. No. 10 Michigan State

The UCLA Bruins enter halftime with an 18-point lead over the Michigan St. Spartans, 42-24. The Bruins look like they came ready to win, while the Spartans have struggled through the first half.

The Bruins opened the game with a 7-0 run and didn't look back. It's been a team effort all-around as the bench contributed 11 points. But Taylor Honeycutt is taking the lead tonight for the Bruins with nine points, three steals and a block. Reeves Nelson has pulled down seven rebounds so far, helping the Bruins to a 21-10 advantage over the Spartans.

Durrell Summers has 12 points for the Spartans, half of the team's total. But other than that it has been a tough night so far. The team is shooting only 28.6 percent from the field and is 1-of-8 from beyond the arc. The one thing they have excelled at, however, is shot-blocking with seven.
