LOS ANGELES – UCLA Women's Basketball has been ranked ninth on the most recent Associated Press Top 25 poll, the AP announced Monday. The Bruins jumped two spots after checking in at No. 11 in the rankings last week.
UCLA is one of four Pac-12 schools to earn a spot in the national ranking: Stanford (1), Arizona (7), Oregon (11).
The Bruins' jump in the rankings comes on the heels of the team's 73-71 victory on the road at then-No. 8 Oregon on Sunday, Jan. 3. The victory snapped Oregon's 27-game winning streak, which was good for the nation's longest-active streak. It was also the Ducks' first home loss since UCLA defeated them at Matthew Knight Arena on Feb. 22, 2019. Michaela Onyenwere notched a career-high 33 points on 12-for-20 shooting, including the game-winning put-back layup late in the fourth quarter. Charisma Osborne added 22 points in the victory, tying a career-high with five three-pointers.
The Bruins have now earned a top-11 ranking in each of the last 27 weeks and have been ranked in the top 25 in 30-consecutive weeks.
