The game stayed tight from there as the Longhorns and Bruins traded one-point leads or were tied 10 times the rest of the way.
The Bruins had several chances after Abrams' two free throws made it 67-64 with 1:49 to play. UCLA struggled to get an open look until Aboya missed with 35 seconds left from about 10 feet. James snagged the rebound, but Shipp tied up the ball allowing the Bruins to keep possession.
On the inbounds, UCLA got the ball to Collison, who missed a 3-pointer before Abrams fouled Shipp to send him to the line. Shipp misfired on the first attempt and the ball bounced high off the rim for James to grab.
When Abrams finally got to the free throw line, the Longhorns' best shooter nearly fell to the floor in surprise when he missed the first, but calmly swished the second for the final margin.
