Bruins Blow By Irish, 89-63

Feb. 7, 2009

LOS ANGELES (AP)--Alfred Aboya and the UCLA Bruins had Notre Dame for breakfast.

Aboya scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds in No. 15 UCLA's 89-63 rout Saturday that sent the Fighting Irish to their seventh consecutive loss for the first time since 1992-93.

It was the fourth straight blowout victory for the Bruins (19-4), who've won those games by an average of 22.7 points since an 86-75 loss at Washington on Jan. 24.

Darren Collison added 17 points and Nikola Dragovic and freshman Jermine Anderson had 10 points each for UCLA, which has forced 74 turnovers during its four-game winning streak, including 11 Saturday.

Tory Jackson scored 17 and Kyle McAlarney 16 for the Irish (12-10), who dropped to 2-7 against ranked opponents this season. Their worst losing streak under coach Mike Brey matches the seven in a row Notre Dame lost to end the 1992-93 season.
