Feb. 22, 2009

Box Score

Pullman, WA--- UCLA (16-9, 7-7) overcame a slow start and raced to a 65-50 win at Washington State (10-16, 3-12) on Sunday afternoon in Pullman, WA. Sophomore guard Doreena Campbell led the way for the Bruins with 24 points.

After misfiring on 12 of its first 15 shots from the field, the Bruins used back-to-back three-point shots by guards Campbell and Erica Tukiainen to jump out to a 17-9 lead at the 8:14 mark. The shots sparked a 10-2 Bruin run which extended the Bruin lead to 21-11 with 6:40 to play. Washington State cut the margin to 23-16 with 6:05 to play before a technical foul on Cougar coach June Daugherty led to four free throw attempts for Campbell. The Bruin sophomore netted all four shots from the line to give her 15 points and the Bruins a 27-16 lead. UCLA, which forced 13 first-half turnovers by the Cougars, went on to enjoy a 33-19 cushion at the break.

Campbell picked up right where she left off and began the second-half with a three-point shot. After scoring on a jump shot with 13:24 to play in the contest, she had totaled 24 of UCLA's points, in a 44-28 lead. The Bruins expanded the margin out to 59-36 with 6:57 on the clock after consecutive baskets by sophomore forward Christina Nzekwe.

Campbell, who finished the game one shy of her career-high total of 25 points, returned to action against the Cougars and was in the starting lineup after sitting out the game on Friday at Washington with blurred vision after taking a blow to the face during practice earlier in the week.

UCLA will now return to Los Angeles to host Stanford on Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. and California on Mar. 1 at Noon (FSN TV) in Pauley Pavilion to complete its home schedule.
