Norman Powell scored 22 points, Travis Wear added 16 and UCLA started its rout of Stanford early, rolling over the Cardinal 84-59 in the Pac-12 semifinals on Friday night.

Coming off a rout in the quarterfinals, UCLA (25-8) started another one by building a 12-point lead in the opening four minutes. The Bruins kept making shots and kept building the lead, racing off to Saturday’s championship game against fourth-ranked and top-seeded Arizona.

Kyle Anderson added 13 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for UCLA, which shot 65 percent.

Stanford (21-12) was listless from the start of its third game in three days, unable to match UCLA’s intensity or athleticism.

The Cardinal labored offensively and barely got in the Bruins’ way on defense, left now to wait for Selection Sunday to see if they’ll be in the NCAA tournament.

Dwight Powell scored 16 points and Chasson Randle added 11 for Stanford.
