Box Score

Coral Gables, Fla. - The UCLA women's basketball earned its first victory of the season, defeating Gardner-Webb by a score of 89-48 in the consolation game of the Miami Jam. The Bruins shot 49.3% from the field and held Gardner-Webb to just 25.9% shooting on the day.

A rejuvinated Noelle Quinn led all players with 20 points on 9-12 shooting. She also had a game-high nine rebounds and six assists. Quinn had suffered from dehydration in the opening loss to TCU on Friday.

Lisa Willis (16 points and eight rebounds) and Amanda Livingston (12 points on 5-7 shooting, including a perfect 5-5 in the first half) joined Quinn in double-figure scoring. Ortal Oren added nine off the bench, and Lindsey Pluimer scored eight points with seven rebounds.

Gardner-Webb (0-2) scored the first basket of the game and then never regained the lead. The Bruins shut down the Bulldogs midway through the first half with a 10-0 run that gave them a 25-10 lead, and at the end of the half, UCLA outscored GW 10-2 to take a 43-24 lead into halftime.

UCLA dominated again in the second half, outscoring the Bulldogs, 46-24. The Bruins opened the half with a 24-6 run.

"It looked like our team had a good time. They worked hard and had good intensity today," said UCLA head coach Kathy Olivier. "We were trying to get it inside and get easier looks for us - more high percentage shots, and it worked."

Quinn, who averaged 17 points in the tournament, was named to the Miami Jam All-Tournament team.

UCLA (1-1) returns home to host Clemson on Wednesday, Nov. 24 in the home opener at 7 pm in Pauley Pavilion.
