UCLA Can't Overcome Slow Start In Loss To No. 10 Arizona State

Jan. 18, 2007

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - UCLA got off to a slow start for its early tip-off with No. 10 Arizona State, and fell 92-52 in the Pacific 10 Conference matchup.

The Bruins (9-11, 3-5) shot just 33 percent and committed 25 turnovers in their fourth loss in five games.

Lindsey Pluimer led UCLA with 17 points. Noelle Quinn added 13.

It was the first meeting of the two teams since the Bruins beat Arizona State in the semifinals of last year's Pac-10 tournament.

The Sun Devils made 11 of their first 12 shots, 4-of-4 by January, to bolt to a 25-10 lead on Jill Noe's 3-pointer with 12:42 left in the half.

The game began at 11 a.m., MST, as part of 'Sparky's Kids to College Field Trip,' which brought several thousand noisy fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders to watch the contest.
