#15 UCLA Women’s Basketball Will Face a Tough Game Against #9 Oregon State

The Bruins hope to defeat the Beavers and split the Oregon road trip.

After a loss to the Oregon Ducks on Friday, UCLA heads to Gill Coliseum to face No. 9 Oregon State. Oregon State is also coming back from a tough loss to USC.

When these two teams met in early January, UCLA came out on top with a 10-point win. It was a back-and-forth for the first three-quarters. The Bruins relied on a 25-poin fourth quarter to seal the victory. Oregon State had no answers in the last 10 minutes.

A win against the Trojans Friday would have earned the Beavers sole possession of first place in the Pac-12. Instead, they are tied with Washington and Stanford like they have been for the last couple of weeks. However, the Beavers do hold the tie-breaker for the Pac-12 Tournament seeding by having beaten both schools.

The Oregon State defense has managed to hold their opponents to under 35% in shooting at home. They are also listed as third in the nation in number of fouls committed per game. UCLA, on the other hand, has troubles limiting their fouls. In Friday’s game, Jordin Canada recorded two fouls in the first two minutes of the game. In the last minutes of the game, fouls were committed left and right by a very frustrated UCLA. The Bruins cannot let their frustrations show or it will be a very long game at Gill Coliseum.
