LOS ANGELES -- J'Covan Brown scored 22 points, Myck Kabongo added 13 and Texas rallied from an 11-point deficit to beat UCLA 69-59 on Saturday in a game delayed nearly 131/2 minutes when the lights went out in the first half.
The Longhorns (5-2) seemingly benefited from the power surge that briefly darkened the aging Los Angeles Sports Arena. After the lights came back on, they outscored UCLA 9-4, including five by Brown, to end the half trailing 34-28.
Texas opened the second half on a 12-6 run to tie the game 40-all. The Longhorns took their first lead on Kabongo's open layup that keyed an 11-3 spurt.
