The Bruins hopped up to #1 in the country early in the week, then easily took care of #19 Washington on Friday in Seattle. The 196.125-194.875 win over the Huskies was led by Anna Li, who won the all-around, uneven bars and balance beam. The win also moved the Bruins up to 2-0 on the year with a trip to Berkeley to face Cal and San Jose St. on Friday and #12 Stanford on Sunday.

Men's Tennis

#4 UCLA took part in a couple tournaments last week, the National Collegiate Tennis Classic and the Sherwood Tournament. While the highlight of the Sherwood Tournament was a semifinal defeat by a doubles team, in the NCTC, Amit Inbar and Nick Meister took home the doubles title. Meister also went to the final in the singles draw, where he lost 6-2, 7-5. BYU is up next on Friday.

Men's Volleyball

#10 UCLA saw their struggles continue as they lost a pair of matches last week, their third and fourth in a row. First, it was a four-set loss to top-ranked USC at Pauley Pavilion, 30-26, 29-31, 30-26, 30-28. After that, the Bruins were swept away in three sets by #7 Pepperdine, 30-27, 30-22, 30-23. The loss has UCLA at a meager 1-4 overall and 0-2 in MPSF play with two tough matches, versus #14 UC Santa Barbara and #2 Cal St. Northridge, on tap this week.

Women's Tennis

#12 UCLA began their season in Sherwood and Palm Springs. In Sherwood, a doubles semifinal loss was the highlight, while the NCTC's in Palm Springs went better with Andrea Remynse and Yasmin Schnack advancing to the doubles final, where they lost a tough match, 8-6. They will play Cal Poly on Tuesday.

Women's Basketball

It came down to free throws and USC hit them, while UCLA clanked them. The Trojans were 24-27 from the line and the Bruins hit just 9-20 as USC beat UCLA, 70-63, in a game for second-place in the Pac-10. Erica Tukiainen led the Bruins with 14 points in the loss. UCLA (10-6, 3-2) now must travel north for matchups versus the two Washington schools.

Women's Swimming and Diving

Karina Silva led UCLA at the inaugural Bruin Diving Invitational, finishing third on the one meter. The swimmers and divers will both return to action on the 29th when they host #3 Stanford.

Women's Water Polo

Ranked third in the country to start the year, the Bruins will open their season this weekend in Ann Arbor at the Michigan Invitational.
