UCLA 76, Presbyterian 40

Monique Billings scored 12 points, Kennedy Burke added 11, and No. 8 UCLA routed Presbyterian 76-40 on Sunday for its second straight blowout victory.

The Bruins (2-0) were coming off a 60-point win against San Jose State in their opener, and they had their way with the Blue Hose (0-2) from the opening tip.

Burke scored all of her points in the first half, when UCLA opened the game on a 12-0 run and shot 47 percent. The Blue Hose missed 18 of 22 shots over the first two quarters.

Cortney Storey was the only Blue Hose in double figures with 18 points. She made four 3-pointers for the 1,100-student school from South Carolina.

The Bruins had an 11-0 spurt in the second quarter, when the Blue Hose made just two field goals and were held to seven points.

UCLA used its height advantage to create havoc on defense, double-teaming shooters and grabbing loose balls. The Bruins owned a 48-8 scoring edge in the paint.

Five of the BruinsÕ freshmen gained valuable minutes, led by Chantel Horvat with 10 points on 4 of 5 shooting. Early in the fourth quarter, Burke was the only starter on the floor with the freshmen.

Presbyterian had 20 turnovers, leading to 30 points by the Bruins.
