SALT LAKE CITY - The sixth-ranked UCLA women's volleyball team (6-2) dropped a second consecutive five-game match on Friday night in Salt Lake City, falling to Utah 30-27, 27-30, 30-28, 23-30-15-12. Senior Brynn Murphy led four Bruins in double-figure kills with 15, and had a team-high 16 points in the match.

UCLA hit under .200 as a team in all three games that they lost, topped by a -.091 attack percentage in the crucial fifth game. The Bruins turned in a .264 team attack percentage in game two, sending the teams to the break tied at one game apiece, and turned in a .208 team attack percentage in game four to send the match to a fifth and deciding game.

For the match, UCLA hit .162 to Utah's .184, and was out-blocked 15-10 in the match.

Offensively, Murphy led the Bruins with 15 kills, followed by Colby Lyman with 14 kills and 16 digs, Brittany Ringel with 12 kills and five blocks, and Katie Carter with 10 digs and a block assist in the match. Four Bruins had double-figure digs on the evening, led by Chrissie Zartman with a team-high 29. She was joined in double figures by Lyman, Krystal McFarland (15) and freshman defensive specialist Jessica Fine with 10. McFarland turned in UCLA's only two aces in the match.
