LOS ANGELES - Arron Afflalo scored 18 points and No. 18 UCLA squelched Temple's second-half surge for a 54-47 victory in a second-round Preseason NIT game Thursday night

The Bruins (2-0) advanced to next week's semifinals at New York's Madison Square Garden. They'll play Memphis, an 87-76 winner over Alabama. The Bruins last reached the semifinals in 1992, losing to Seton Hall.

UCLA's guards, 6-foot-2 Jordan Farmar and 6-foot freshman Darren Collison, handled Temple's bigger trio of the 6-foot-6 Mardy Collins, 6-5 Dustin Salisbery and 6-5 Mark Tyndale, who combined for five points in the first half. Collins was coming off an 18-point effort Tuesday against Army, and finished with 15 against UCLA.

Tyndale finished with six points and Salisbery went scoreless.

RAMSEY'S HOUSE DESTROYED: Hall of Famer Frank Ramsey, a former All-American at Kentucky who went on to play with the Boston Celtics in the 1950s and 1960s, was among those whose homes were destroyed by tornadoes in western Kentucky on Tuesday.

ARKANSAS: Guard Eric Ferguson won't play in tonight's opener against Portland State. He was suspended after he was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving.

PITTSBURGH: All tickets have been sold for the season, the school's fourth consecutive full-season sellout since the Petersen Events Center opened in 2002.


NO. 9 UCONN 60, BC 46: Charde Houston and Ann Strother scored 11 each and the host Huskies (3-0) advanced to the title game in the Preseason NIT. UConn faces Oklahoma on Sunday.
