LOS ANGELES - KJ Lewis scored 18 points, Caleb Love added 17 and No. 5 Arizona routed UCLA 88-65 to clinch the Pac-12 regular-season title in the Wildcats’ final season in the league.

The Wildcats (24-6, 15-4) got some help in the Pacific Northwest, where Washington defeated second-place Washington State 74-68. Arizona is headed to the Big 12 next season, while the Bruins are bound for the Big Ten.

Jaden Bradley added 13 points for Arizona, which had five players in double figures while winning its fourth in a row. The Wildcats earned their first win at Pauley Pavilion under third-year coach Tommy Lloyd, who was 0-2 in the building.

The Bruins had won five straight at home against Arizona, but the Wildcats took over after the game was tied three times in the opening minutes.

Lazar Stefanovic scored 20 to lead UCLA (14-16, 9-10), which lost its season-worst fifth in a row.
