TUCSON, Ariz. -- UCLA won its sixth-consecutive Pac-12 road game (dating back to last season) on Friday night with a 67-61 win over Arizona at the McKale Center.

The Bruins got back to .500 with the win to improve to 8-8 overall and 2-2 in the Pac-12. The Wildcats dropped to 4-10 overall and slipped to 0-3 in league play.

Thea Lemberger, who didn't practice this week due to a leg injury, had a game-high 19 points to go with six rebounds, five assists and two steals. She entered tonight's game 0-for-13 from three-point range, but sank 2-of-6 on the night.

The Bruins built their largest lead of 15 points (25-10) on a layup by Atonye Nyingifa at the 9:14 mark of the first half. Nyingifa was one of four Bruins in double figures, registering her third consecutive double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds. UCLA held a 37-31 lead at the break and outrebounded the Wildcats 27-14.

UCLA never trailed in the contest and led 56-48 with 7:48 remaining. But Arizona engineered a 7-0 run in a two-minute span to trim the lead to 56-55 with 5:48 to go on a layup by Candice Warthen. Lemberger hit her second three-pointer at 5:04 to push the lead to four. After a pair of free throws by Arizona, Nirra Fields drained her second trey of the game (finished with 11 points) to give the Bruins a 62-57 advantage with 4:01 to go. The Wildcats, which didn't make a field goal the final 5:48 of the game, never threatened again.

Luiana Livulo had a solid outing, tying her career-high of 11 points for the third time this season. She also had five rebounds against the Wildcats. Corinne Costa had a nice outing with six points and eight rebounds to help UCLA outrebound Arizona, 44-35. Costa also registered two blocks to become UCLA's leader with 15 on the year in just her sixth game of the season.

LaBrittney Jones led Arizona with 14 points. Warthen was the only other Wildcat to reach double figures with 10 points.

The Bruins return to action at Noon on Sunday, Jan. 12, when they travel to No. 23 Arizona State. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
