UCLA Women Lose On Road at Oregon

Feb. 23, 2008

Box Score

The UCLA women's basketball team dropped a 66-55 decision to Oregon in a Pac-10 conference game played on Saturday afternoon in McArthur Court on the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, OR. The Ducks were led by a career-high 25 points scored by senior guard Kaela Chapdelaine. UCLA fell to 14-13 overall and 9-7 in the conference. Oregon improved to 12-16 and 6-11.

UCLA, which trailed 30-23 at the half, outscored the Ducks 13-2 to start the second half and erased the seven-point halftime deficit. The Bruin run left them with a 36-32 lead after junior guard Tierra Henderson's basket with 14:08 to play. Oregon then went on an 18-5 run, including four three-point shots out of their seven baskets in the stretch, to regain control of the game at 50-41. Chapdelaine connected on three three-point baskets in the decisive stretch.

UCLA cut the margin to five points, 50-45, on a basket by freshman guard Doreena Campbell at the 4:54 mark. However, Oregon scored 13 of the game's next 18 points and took a 63-50 lead after a free throw with 1:42 to play. UCLA never got closer than 10 points after that as the Ducks nailed their free throws in the closing moments.

The first half was a hotly contested affair which included eight lead changes. UCLA jumped out to an early 5-1 lead before a pair of Oregon baskets by Chapdelaine gave the Ducks their first lead of the contest at 6-5 with 14:20 to play. After a basket by Bruin sophomore center Moniquee Alexander tied the game at 19-all with 5:26 to play, the Ducks closed the half on a 11-4 run to take a 30-23 advantage into the locker room at the break. Half of the Ducks' 10 first-half baskets came from behind the three-point arc. UCLA had 10 first-half turnovers slow their attack.

The Bruins were led by senior forward Lindsey Pluimer who totaled 15 points. Campbell added eight points and eight rebounds.

UCLA returns home to close out the regular season schedule with games against the Arizona schools. The Bruins will host Arizona State on Thursday night at 7 p.m. in Pauley Pavilion and then welcome Arizona on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. Teams begin play in the State Farm Pac-10 Tournament on either Mar. 7 and 8 in San Jose, CA.
