Nov. 24, 2004

Box Score

Los Angeles, Calif. - UCLA guard Noelle Quinn scored a game-high 23 points in leading the Bruins to a 83-52 win over Clemson in a game tonight on Nell and John Wooden Court in Pauley Pavilion. It was the second straight 20-point effort for the Bruin sophomore, who was coming off of a 20-point game in a Bruin win against Gardner-Webb last Sunday. Quinn added four rebounds, three assists and seven steals against Clemson.

After Clemson scored the first basket of the game, the Bruins grabbed the lead on a Lisa Willis three-point shot at the 18:25 mark and never trailed again in the contest. The Bruins, who led 22-15 at the 9:33 point in the first half, went on a 17-3 run to take a 39-18 lead with 2:19 to play on their way to a 42-20 halftime margin. UCLA enjoyed at least a 20-point cushion for the remainder of the game.

Willis finished with 18 points for UCLA and added a team-best eight boards. The junior guard also totaled six assists and matched her career-high with eight steals. Freshman forward Lindsey Pluimer added a season-best 13 points and five rebounds. All 11 Bruins who played in the game scored at least one point in helping UCLA improve its record to 2-1 on the year.

"It was nice to see the team all clicking and on the same page," said Bruin coach Kathy Olivier. "They played as a unit and played well together. We had a good defensive effort for most of the night."

Clemson, which saw its record fall to 1-2 on the year, was led by guard Tasha Phillips, who scored 11 points, including three three-point shots. Forward Lauren Allen added eight rebounds.

UCLA will now prepare to host the No. 4 ranked Texas Longhorns on Sunday, Nov. 28 at 2 p.m. in Pauley Pavilion. Texas (1-1) will play Tennessee on Thanksgiving Day before heading West.
