LOS ANGELES - The 12th-ranked UCLA women's volleyball team posted a three-game sweep of Arizona State on Friday night in Pauley Pavilion with game scores of 30-21, 30-12, 30-27. The Bruins (14-6, 7-3 Pac-10) were led by sophomore outside hitter Becky Green who had nine kills and 11.5 points, while the Sun Devils fell to 8-11 (3-7 Pac-10) with the loss and were led by Sarah Watkins with eight kills and 11 points in the match.

The Sun Devils were unable to recover in game two, as they hit .086 as a team in the game with 11 kills and eight errors on 35 attacks, while UCLA hit a blistering .591 with an error-free 13 kills on 22 attacks. Through two games, UCLA had out-blocked the Sun Devils 7-0 and had cruised through the game thanks in part to a nine-point serving run behind Carter to take a 13-2 lead.

Unfortunately, the Sun Devils then started having problems with service errors, as nine of the team's 19 service errors in the match occurred during the third game. UCLA would come back to tie the game at 21-21 on a Rachell Johnson kill, and the game was tied as late as 24-24 before consecutive kills by Becky Green and Katie Carter put the Bruins ahead for good.
