Jan. 4, 2005

Box Score

Los Angeles, Calif. - UCLA outscored Oregon 44-26 in the second half and overcame a 28-26 halftime deficit to remain undefeated in Pac-10 Conference play after a 70-54 victory. Junior guard Nikki Blue led UCLA with 16 points and nine rebounds, and sophomore guard Noelle Quinn added 15 points with nine rebounds.

The Bruins (9-3, 3-0 in the Pac-10) shot just 27.5% in the first half but made up for it by forcing 13 Oregon turnovers. The Bruins had an 18-12 lead with 6:49 on the clock but surrendered the lead when Oregon went on a 16-4 run to take a 28-22 advantage with 58 seconds to play. Brandi Davis led the way for the Ducks on that run with 11 of her 13 points in the game. However, the Bruins used layups from Blue and Lindsey Pluimer in the final 36 seconds to cut the deficit to just 28-26.

UCLA came out on fire at the start of the first half. Lisa Willis hit a three-pointer to open the second half to regain the lead for UCLA, 29-28, setting the pace for a 14-3 run by the Bruins that gave them a 40-31 advantage with 15:27 to play. With UCLA up 49-41, UCLA went on another big run, 11-3, to increase the lead to 60-44 with 5:09 to play. Oregon never got closer than 12 points with 1:01 left on the clock.

Joining Blue and Quinn in double-figures for UCLA were Pluimer with 13 points and Willis with 11 points and eight rebounds.

Oregon (9-4, 2-2), which was held to its lowest scoring total of the year, was led by Cathrine Kraayeveld's 16 points, nine rebounds and four blocked shots. Davis joined her in double-figures with 13 points.

The victory gave UCLA its 10th consecutive win at home, its longest home winning streak since the Bruins won their last six games of the 1989-90 season and first four of the 1990-91 season.
