Box Score

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Noelle Quinn scored 23 points to join three teammates in double figures, and No. 25 UCLA defeated No. 14 Purdue 70-64 Sunday.

UCLA (5-1) led 50-38 with 10:59 to play, but Purdue tied it at 57 on Tye Jackson's 3-pointer with 3:27 left.

The Bruins took the lead for good on freshman Lindsey Pluimer's layup with 3:07 remaining. Purdue's Emily Heikes made five of six free throws, the last two with 1:07 remaining, pulling the Boilermakers within 63-62.

But UCLA sealed the victory by scoring the next five points. Quinn made a jump shot and one of two free throws, and Lisa Willis made two free throws.

The Bruins are off to their best start since the 1982-1983 season when they were 5-0.

Jackson led Purdue (4-2) with 14 points, and Heikes added 13. Willis added 14, Pluimer 12, and Nikki Blue 11 as the Bruins won their fifth consecutive game following a season-opening loss to TCU.

UCLA has won two straight over ranked teams in an eight-day span, after a victory over then No. 4 Texas on Nov. 28.
