UCLA 129, San Jose State 69

Jordin Canada helped UCLA put up a record number of points.

The eighth-ranked Bruins' senior guard had her second triple-double, but was more focused on the team's defensive breakdowns.

"It's great," said Canada, who had 26 points, 11 steals and 10 assists in the 129-69 win over San Jose State on Friday night. "It just shows the potential that we have. I know we made lots of mistakes tonight. They got off 35 3s. That's something we need to focus on. It definitely shows the potential we have."

The Bruins scored the most points in school history, bettering the previous mark of 125 set in 1971 (against Utah State) and 1976 (Oregon State). Freshman Kayla Owens made a 3-pointer to put UCLA over the 125-point mark. Last year, Baylor scored 140 points in a 140-32 victory over Winthrop on Dec. 15.

Owens, in her debut as a Bruin, had a big basket and wasn't even aware of the significance at the time.

"I didn't know until Coach told me, but I was really excited to be part of a great team that was able to have that record," Owens said. "As Jordin said, we have so much potential it's exciting."

Kennedy Burke said the mood on the bench was hyped in the fourth quarter. Owens said she didn't even realize UCLA had hit the century mark.

"Whenever you break a record that was set in 1976, you've got to be respectful. Think about the amazing players who have played here," UCLA coach Cori Close said. "To be able to break that record, I'm very proud. The reason I'm proud is because of all the great people who laid the groundwork for us, who sacrificed, Denise Curry, Maylana Martin, Ann Meyers. Noelle Quinn was here. To be able to break a record that so many people built a foundation for, that's pretty special."

Canada was an all-Pac 12 point guard, the conference's defensive player of the year and an honorable mention AP All-American last season. She and Ann Meyers Drysdale are the only two Bruins with two triple-doubles in their career.

Monique Billings added 19 points and 11 rebounds and freshman Michaela Onyenwere, playing in her first game, added 19 points and 10 rebounds.

With the win, UCLA extended its homecourt win streak at Pauley Pavilion to 30 consecutive games, a span that now spreads over parts of three seasons. The streak is second only to UConn.

Myzhanique Ladd scored all of her team-high 11 points in the first half and Megan Anderson also had 11 for San Jose State. The Spartans are virtually a new team with seven freshmen, so this was a stiff test.

San Jose State coach Jamie Craighead declined to comment through a school spokesperson.

UCLA led 69-38 at halftime, meaning the potential for a record-breaking night was well in the works. The 69 points were the second-most for a half in school history, three shy of the 72 UCLA scored against Arizona on Jan. 18, 1990.
