TUCSON, Ariz. - Londynn Jones scored 16 points, Lauren Betts had 11 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 8 UCLA dominated on the boards in a 61-41 win at Arizona in the regular season finale for both teams.

The Bruins (24-5, 13-5 Pac-12) shot 57.5% and outrebounded Arizona 43-17.

Betts had her 10th double-double of the season while Jones was 5 of 9 from the field including 4 of 7 from 3-point range. Gabriela Jaquez added 11 on 5-of-6 shooting for UCLA, which has won five in a row.

Arizona (16-14, 8-10) looked exhausted after coming off a double-overtime home loss to No. 7 USC on Thursday night. The Wildcats shot only 28.3% and got a bulk of their scoring by forcing 30 UCLA turnovers.

Helena Pueyo led Arizona with 16 points and six steals.

UCLA led 33-18 at halftime thanks to 60.9% shooting, holding Arizona to 23.3% from the field. The Bruins stayed hot in the third quarter, making three of its first four shots, but then went more than three minutes without a field goal before hitting three in a row to build a 49-26 advantage with 1:58 to go in the period.

A 9-0 run put UCLA up by 15 early in the second quarter.
