WOMEN'S COLLEGE HOOPS: Ducks fall to UCLA

UCLA added to Oregon's Pac-12 woes on Monday, handing the Ducks a 103-83 loss at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene.

Oregon started slowly, came on, then couldn't keep it up against the Bruins, who had lost five in a row on the road.

Oregon fell to 13-12 overall and 4-12 in the conference.

UCLA climbed to 12-14, 6-8.

The Bruins, who never trailed, led twice in the first half by 20 points and were on top 54-40 at intermission. They finished at a season-high 54.7 percent from the field.

Oregon ran off 11 unanswered points after halftime but never got closer than within nine of the Bruins.

Jillian Alleyne and Ariel Thomas led the Ducks. Alleyne had with 24 points and 12 rebounds for her 22nd double-double of the season, and Thomas scored 28 points.

Alleyne became both the UO and Pac-12 single-season record holder for rebounds, with 388 this season. The mark belonged to Bev Smith, who set it with Oregon 33 years ago, and Stanford's Nnemkadi Ogwumike, who also totaled 376.

Oregon's next game is 6 p.m. Friday at Washington.
