The Bruins blew out the Aggies for their 29th consecutive win at home as UCLA advanced to the Sweet 16.

Kari Korver landed her first of seven three-pointers just 31 seconds into the game to give UCLA a 3-0 lead. Texas A&M responded with a Khaalia Hillsman jumper to make it 3-2 Bruins. That was as close as the Aggies would get.

For the final 39 minutes of the game, the Bruins put on a shooting clinic. UCLA shot 56.6% from the field and 41.7% from three-point range while holding the Aggies to 31% from the field and just 14.3% from behind the arc.

Korver hit three after three. She finished 7 of 10 from three-point range for 21 points to lead all scorers. Jordin Canada and Monique Billings scored 12 points each. Canada added 11 assists to record the double-double. Kennedy Burke just missed joining her finishing with 9 points and 9 assists.

Korver just missed tying the UCLA record for three-pointers in a women’s basketball record which is still 8.

Overall, it was a great way for the team to finish at home. While UCLA had two relatively easy games in the first two rounds, the tournament now gets significantly tougher for the Bruins as they now head to Bridgeport, CT on Saturday afternoon where they will play the UConn Huskies who have won 109 games in a row.


Go Bruins!
