UCLA Crushes Cougars
That was quick. The winning streak for the Washington State University women's hoop team was over quickly, in fact, it was not much of a streak as it was limited to one game after the UCLA Bruins crushed the Cougars, 93-58 in Los Angeles. With the loss, the Cougars drop to 7-19 overall and 2-13 in conference play.
The game began well for Wazzu as the Cougars took a 10-4 lead on balanced scoring from true freshman point guard Kiki Moore and sophomores April Cook and Jazmine Perkins. But the bruins responded with a 12-2 run and never trailed again in the game. The Cougars managed to tie the game at 16, but then went on a 10-minute stretch where they scored only six points and allowed UCLA to take a double digit lead, 38-22. Wazzu fought back and cut the lead to single digits, at 43-35, by halftime.
However, the Cougars could never get the deficit lower than eight points and once UCLA put it into double digits shortly after the second half begun, the Bruins were never threatened and cruised in for the final margin of victory.
True freshman center Carly Noyes finished with 15 points to lead the Cougars in scoring while Perkins added 12.
- The Cougars shot a paltry 47% [8-of-17] from the free throw line.
- UCLA has not lost to the Cougars in nine years.
The Cougars continue Pac-10 conference play on Saturday, February 27 at 2 PM when they play rival Washington in Seattle
