Jan. 15, 2009

Box Score

Tempe, AZ - In a Thursday morning game at Wells Fargo Arena, the Bruins had trouble finding their rhythm against a tough Arizona State defense and lost to the Sun Devils, 68-44.

The Bruins had an early wake-up call thanks to the 11 am tip, and the team was slow to get going, falling behind in the game, 9-0, and going scoreless until Doreena Campbell hit a jumper at 15:17. ASU upped its lead to 13-2 before UCLA responded with eight straight points to trim the lead to 13-10. The Bruins held ASU scoreless over six minutes during that run, but the Sun Devils came right back with a 7-0 run to regain a double-digit lead at 20-10. ASU took its biggest lead of the half at 17 points, 33-16, with 48 seconds to play and went into halftime with a 15 point lead, 33-18. The Bruins, who had a season-low 18 points at the half, turned the ball over 17 times in the first half and committed 28 overall in the game.

ASU increased its lead to 21 in the second half with an 8-2 run to start the period, and the Bruins never got closer than 17 the rest of the way. The Bruins sent the Sun Devils to the free throw line 29 times, and ASU converted 24 foul shots.

Campbell led the Bruins with 13 points and a game-high six rebounds. Freshman Atonye Nyingifa added a career-high tying nine points on 3-4 shooting from the field. The Bruins had season-lows in points (44), rebounds (30) and FG% (36.6%).

Dymond Simon led Arizona State (11-6, 3-2 in the Pac-10) with 14 points, 10 coming from the foul line.

UCLA (11-4, 2-2) will next face Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 17 in Tucson.
