Box Score

TEMPE, Ariz. -- UCLA's Ashley Bowles had a match-high 14 kills and 13 digs to lead the UCLA Bruins to a 3-0 win over the Arizona State Sun Devils this afternoon in the Wells Fargo Arena. Games scores were 15-11, 15-3, 15-2.

UCLA improves to 4-9 on the season, 4-3 in the Pac-10. ASU is now to 7-8 on the year, 4-4 in conference play.

The Bruins got off to a slow start and had to recover from a 10-3 deficite to claim game one 15-11, then never looked back as they registered the first sweep of the season.

Outside hitter Kristee Porter added 12 kills while rightside hitter Chaska Potter tied her career-high with six block assists. Middle Amy Nihipali contributed three block solos and five block assists on the afternoon to tie her career-high. The Bruins hit .435 as a team in the last game, committing only two errors and hit .208 for the match. UCLA tallied 54 digs to ASU's 48.

Freshman outside hitter Jami Coughlin led ASU with seven kills and eight digs, while sophomore outside hitter Amanda Burbridge added a team-high 11 digs. Junior setter Jolynn Faatulu tallied 25 assists for the Sun Devils. Arizona State hit .000 for the match and were outblocked by the Bruins 12 to 2.

"Obviously we're very disappointed in the way we played this afternoon," said ASU head coach Patti Snyder-Park. "We committed way too many hitting errors and did not pass the ball well. We need to regroup before next weekend."

UCLA returns to Los Angeles for a three-match homestand, hosting UC Santa Barbara on Wednesday, then Washington on Friday and Washington State on Sunday. Arizona State will take on in-state rival Arizona on Friday, October 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Arena in continued conference action.

UCLA def. Arizona State, 3-0.
