ESTERO, Fla. -- UCLA settled for sixth place at the Gulf Coast Showcase after a 67-49 loss to North Carolina State on Sunday afternoon at Germain Arena.

The Wolfpack (8-1) engineered a 17-0 run midway through the first half to build a commanding lead they would never relinquish. The Bruins dropped to 3-4 overall.

North Carolina State shot 60 percent (15-for-25) from the field and 50 percent (5-for-10) from three-point range in the first half while winning the battle of the boards, 14-9. UCLA managed just five field goals (5-for-15) and committed 11 turnovers.

The Wolfpack led by as many as 22 points in the second half. The Bruins battled, winning the second half by two, but couldn't overcome the slow start and never got closer than 12 points in the second half.

NC State shot 54.2 percent (26-for-48) from the field for the game and outrebounded UCLA 30-18. The Bruins forced 22 turnovers, but committed 20 and shot just 41.7 percent (15-for-36) from the field.

UCLA was led by Thea Lemberger who had 17 points, five steals, three assists and two rebounds. Atonye Nyingifa, who was playing with back spasms, scored 15 points, but grabbed a season-low one rebound. Nirra Fields rounded out a trio of Bruins to reach double figures with 13 points.

Miah Spencer led a trio of NC State players in double figures with 14 points and four rebounds. Krystal Barrett and Markeisha Gatling each scored 10 points for the Wolfpack.

The Bruins return to action on Saturday, Dec. 7 at Noon (ET)/9:00 a.m. (PT) at No. 5 Notre Dame (6-0).
