UCLA Falls to Stanford, 70-46
March 14, 2010
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Nnemkadi Ogwumike had 16 points and 10 rebounds, Jayne Appel added 15 points and No. 2 Stanford rolled to a 70-46 victory over 23rd-ranked UCLA on Sunday, winning its eighth Pac-10 tournament championship in nine title-game appearances.
The Cardinal (31-1) earned the league's automatic berth to the NCAA tournament, where they'll be appearing for the 23rd consecutive year. They lost to Connecticut in the national semifinals last year and to Tennessee in the championship game in 2008, last winning a national title in 1992.
Stanford became the first Pac-10 team to go undefeated in 18 regular-season games and win the league tourney title, even if the Cardinal looked sloppy at times with 15 turnovers.
Jasmine Dixon scored 20 points before fouling out with 5:18 remaining for the Bruins (24-8).
