UCLA Falls to Nebraska
March 23, 2010
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Dominique Kelley scored a career-high 22 points, Kelsey Griffin added 18 points and 14 rebounds, and top-seeded Nebraska took apart UCLA 83-70 in the second round of the NCAA women's tournament on Tuesday night.
The Cornhuskers (32-1) advanced to the regional semifinals for the first time in program history. They will play No. 4 seed Kentucky in Kansas City next Sunday.
Star Jasmine Dixon managed 13 points for the No. 8 seed Bruins (25-9) after early foul trouble, but the momentum and chaos created by their defensive pressure didn't last past the first quarter of the game.
Griffin, who recorded her 2,000th career point in the first round, got past 1,000 career rebounds to become only the second Nebraska women's player to reach both of those marks.
