ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) -- Travis Bader hit a school-record 11 3-pointers and scored a career-high 47 points to lead Oakland past IUPUI 89-71 Thursday night.
Bader's point total is the highest this season by a Division I player, beating a 42-point performance by Tyler Haws of BYU. It is also the highest single-game total in Oakland's Division I history, and third all-time at the school.
"After the last game (a 97-78 loss to South Dakota), I said something really stupid like I let them get in my head," Bader said. "That's probably the dumbest thing I've ever said because I'm the only person that can get in my head. So I kind of reflected on that a bit and just came out here shooting, doing what I do in practice and putting up shots.
"My teammates did a great job finding me in transition and finding me in the offense. Corey (Petros) probably knocked a couple guys out tonight trying to screen. Same with Drew Valentine and Ryan Bass."
Bader, who leads the nation in 3-pointers made, was 11 for 18 from beyond the arc, 15 for 24 overall and 6 for 6 at the free-throw line. That helped the Golden Grizzlies (9-13, 4-4 Summit) shoot 55 percent overall from the field, including 14 of 30 on 3-point attempts.
Sean Esposito scored 21 points and Donovan Gibbs had 15 for IUPUI (6-17, 1-8), which lost its seventh straight.
Petros added 12 points and 11 rebounds for Oakland, and Duke Mondy had 11 points. The Grizzlies outrebounded the Jaguars 37-18 and swept the season series between the schools.
Bader opened the game with back-to-back 3-pointers that put the Grizzlies up 6-0.
Oakland led 37-26 at halftime and extended the margin to 63-37 with 12:20 left on a dunk by Bass in transition. However, he was whistled for a technical and the Jaguars scored the next eight points. IUPUI later cut the lead to 72-61 with 6:48 remaining. But Bader answered with a 3 on the other end and then scored 16 of Oakland's final 17 points, including all six of his free-throw attempts.
Oakland coach Greg Kampe said he was angry with Bader after hearing his remarks following the South Dakota loss.
"That told me the whole mindset of our basketball team," Kampe said. "Mentally we were in a fog. As a coaching staff, we had to reshape that thinking and get things going in a different direction.
"Like he said, a lot of guys got him open. Bass did a heck of a job getting him the ball. They recognized it was his night and everything was going. That's what I liked. ... I think there were two times where he went out and got his own shot. The rest came out of the offense and great screens and passes."
UCLA 84, NO. 6 ARIZONA 73
TUCSON, Ariz. -- Shabazz Muhammad scored 23 points, Jordan Adams added 15 and UCLA rode a dominating start to an 84-73 win over No. 6 Arizona.
The Pac-12's top scoring and shooting team, UCLA (16-4, 6-1) tried to turn Arizona's whiteout into a blowout, racing to a 16-point lead in the game's first seven minutes.
David Wear added 15 points and eight rebounds for UCLA.
Arizona (16-2, 4-12) got off to a miserable start at both ends and never fully recovered, pulling no closer than four points after digging a huge opening hole.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Kelly Olynyk scored 26 points and Elias Harris added 25 as No. 10 Gonzaga beat BYU 83-63 in a showdown for first place in the West Coast Conference.
Olynyk shot 9 for 9 from the field and 8 for 8 on free throws to go along with nine rebounds, and Harris had 10 boards for Gonzaga (18-2, 5-0), which was coming off a last-second loss at No. 9 Butler last weekend.

RICHMOND 86, NO. 19 VCU 74
RICHMOND, Va. -- Kendall Anthony scored 21 of his 26 points after halftime and Darien Brothers hit two huge 3-pointers as Richmond needed overtime to end No. 19 VCU's 13-game winning streak.
Brothers had 18 points and Cedrick Lindsay 13 as the Spiders (13-7, 3-2 Atlantic 10) won for only the second time in their last nine meetings with the Rams. Richmond hit 12 3-pointers with Anthony making five and Brothers four, including one with 1.5 seconds left in regulation to force the overtime, and another to clinch it with 1:35 to play in OT.
NO. 23 MISSISSIPPI 62,
OXFORD, Miss. -- Marshall Henderson scored 28 points, hitting six 3-pointers in the second half, and No. 23 Mississippi rallied for a victory over Tennessee.
Henderson is the Southeastern Conference's leading scorer with 18.9 points per game and he put on a show after the break, nearly single-handedly carrying the Rebels (16-2, 5-0) to their eighth consecutive victory. It's only the second time Ole Miss has started 5-0 in SEC play.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Ceola Clark scored 11 points and Western Illinois, despite not scoring in the last 8 minutes of the game, held on to beat IPFW 43-40.
Remy Roberts-Burnett added 10 points for the Summit League-leading Leathernecks (16-4, 8-1 Summit). Jack Houpt's 3-pointer with 12:49 left was Western Illinois' last field goal, and the Leathernecks didn't score after Don McAvoy's free throws made it 43-31 with 8:35 to play.
Mario Hines led the Mastodons (9-13, 2-6) with 13 points and seven rebounds. Joe Edwards scored with 1:34 left to get Fort Wayne within three, but the Mastodons' Luis Jacobo missed a pair of 3-point tries in the final minute.
