Women's Tennis

Up to #2 in the country, the Bruins ran into a problem last week. The first match of the week, versus Pepperdine, was not a problem as the Bruins downed the Waves, 6-1. Things weren't nearly as good against #9 Baylor. The Bruins took the doubles point from the Bears in dominating fashion, but Baylor took four of the six singles matches to defeat the Bruins, 4-3. 14-2 UCLA does not play this week due to finals.

Women's Gymnastics

Anna Li missed her Senior Day with an ankle injury, but it didn't slow the #3 Bruins, who beat Michigan St. and Cal St. Fullerton in a tri-meet to close their regular season. UCLA's score of 196.525 bested the Spartans' 195.95 and the Titans' 193.875, each of whom had season high totals. Vanessa Zamarippa took the all-around title, the fifth consecutive time that she took the title when competing in all four events. The Bruins will take a week off before the Pac-10 Championships.

Women's Water Polo

Two games, two wins. The fourth-ranked Bruins took down UC Irvine, 8-5, to kick off their week thanks to four goals from Priscilla Orozco. The junior followed it up with four more goals in a 13-6 win over #6 Arizona St. to move the Bruins' record to 14-5 overall and 2-1 in conference play. UCLA will not play this week.

Softball

#6 UCLA played only one game last week, but it was a tough one against #18 North Carolina. Donna Kerr allowed just one hit, which was necessary for the Bruins to take down the Tar Heels, 1-0. The Bruins improved to 17-4 with the win with a doubleheader versus Cal St. Bakersfield on the docket for Sunday.

Men's Volleyball

Coming off of a rocky week two weeks ago, the #8 Bruins turned things around with a pair of sweeps last week. Ball St. was the first victim in a 87 minute sweep to begin the week, then #13 Illinois-Chicago was the second victim in a 85 minute sweep. The 12-9 Bruins also have this week off.

Men's Tennis

Fall behind 3-0? No problem. The #8 Bruins fell behind to Duke, but stormed back to take the final four matches for a 4-3 win over the Blue Devils. UCLA was the victim of a 4-3 match in their next contest when #16 Baylor took them down in a close one to close out the week. A week off will give them the chance to rest.

Men's Golf

It was a tie, but it was still first place for #12 UCLA. At the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters in Las Vegas, the Bruins finished at +35, tied with UNLV for first in the tournament. UCLA will compete in the GCAA Match Play beginning Sunday.

Women's Basketball

So close, but yet so far. The #23 Bruins are a good team, but they're not quite there yet. UCLA opened the Pac-10 Tournament by routing Oregon St., 60-44. That was followed a tense 59-53 victory over USC in their home gym. It was the first time the Bruins defeated the Trojans at Galen Center and it came behind Darxia Morris' 16 points. That sent UCLA to the conference tournament final, where they met #2 Stanford. It was there that the Bruins were exposed as not quite one of the best in the nation yet because the Cardinal whooped them, 70-46. Even if they're not a top-notch team yet, the Bruins are still a darn good team and will find out where and when in the NCAA Tournament they will play on Monday at 4 pm PST when the selection show is aired on ESPN. [UPDATE: Bruins "earned" an 8th seed. Discussion over here].

Men's Track and Field

The distance medley team was the star of the Bruins' NCAA Indoor Championships, taking All-America honors in Fayetteville, Arkansas. In an outdoor even in Fullerton, Eric White had a lifetime best in the pole vault, Nelson Rosario equaled a season best in the high jump and Alec Govi won the 5000m.

Women's Track and Field

Danielle Watson got things going for the Bruins at the NCAA Indoor Championships by taking All-America honors in the long jump. Tory Pena (long jump) and Ryann Krais (pentathlon) also earned All-America honors to give all three Bruin competitors that distinction. Krishna Curry was tops for the Bruins in the outdoor Northridge meet, winning the 800m and helping the 4x400m to second place.

Women's Swimming and Diving

The swim team will compete in the NCAA Championships this weekend.

Women's Rowing

The Bruins had no problem with San Diego St., taking all four races in advance of their visit to San Diego in two weeks.
