NEW YORK (AP) -- Shabazz Muhammad scored 21 points and No. 11 UCLA made enough free throws late to hold off Georgia for a 60-56 win Tuesday night in the consolation game of the Legends Classic tournament.

In the final minutes of a mostly dreary game, UCLA (4-1) took the lead with Muhammad on the bench, on baskets by Travis Wear and Jordan Adams, but the hyped freshman re-entered with 1:58 left to play.

He made two free throws with 1:15 left, then scooped up a loose ball on the other end with a minute remaining and fed Norman Powell, who was fouled attempting a layup.

Wear finished with 10 points and eight rebounds for UCLA, and Kyle Anderson had nine rebounds and nine points.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the Bulldogs (1-4) with 16 points and had eight rebounds. Marcus Thornton had 10 rebounds for Georgia.
