Non-Revenue Sports Bruin Review and Calendar

Men's Volleyball

#2 UCLA had a rough opening to the season as they lost in the first round of the UCSB Collegiate, then lost again in the fifth place match. In their first place match, UCLA was beaten by #5 Cal St. Northridge in four sets. They rebounded nicely in their next match and swept Pacific, but dropped their final match in three sets to #6 UC Irvine. The Bruins will look to bounce back this week in their first home matches of the year when Cal St. Northridge and UC Santa Barbara visit.

Women's Gymnastics

Rarely can a loss feel as good as UCLA's did on Friday. How good was their performance in a losing effort? They moved up int he polls from #4 to #3. The Bruins traveled to Salt Lake City to take on #2 Utah and while they did lose by a hair, 196.175-196.075, they showed how much potential this team has. UCLA used underclassmen in 22 of their 24 routines, including 16 freshmen, yet they performed well in a hostile Huntsman Center before 12,951 Utes fans. Aisha Gerber and Vanessa Zamarrip, both freshmen, led the Bruins in the all around, placing third and fourth respectively in the meet. Gerber also won the balance beam. With so many young gymnasts performing so well, this team could be special in the future beginning with Sunday's first home meet as Arizona visits Pauley Paviion.

Women's Basketball

The Bruins had only one game on the schedule for the week, but it was a big one as they hosted USC in a Pac 10 showdown. The two teams were pretty even for most of the game as both teams had leads, but neither ever really stretched the lead. Well, neither team stretched the lead until the end, when the Bruins dominated the final 10 minuted en route to a 87-75 win. Rebekah Gardner, a freshman playing in her first crosstown rivalry, hit a three pointer with 9:23 to go that tied the game and began a 14-2 UCLA run that would put the Bruins ahead as they cruised the rest of the way. Doreena Campbell was at the center of nearly everything the Bruins (11-3, 2-1) did, scoring 20 and grabbing 9 boards. Next up for UCLA is a trip to the Grand Canyon State where they'll take on the Sun Devils Thursday and Arizona Saturday.

Diving

UCLA hosted the UCLA Diving Invitational this weekend and did extremely well, winning all three events they entered. The swim and dive team will not compete until the 24th when they host Washington.
