LOS ANGELES, CA -

Sophomore guard Malena Washington nearly equaled her career high in scoring, but it wasn't enough, as Arizona dropped a 75-41 decision at UCLA, Sunday afternoon inside Pauley Pavilion.

Washington scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting, including draining a career-best three treys, while dishing out a team-high equaling three assists. The performance marked her seventh double-figure scoring outing of the season.

Sophomore forward LaBrittney Jones provided a lift off the bench, as she poured in eight points and pulled down a team-high six rebounds in 25 of minutes of action.

Arizona (9-18, 2-14 Pac-12) forced UCLA (11-16, 7-9 Pac-12) into 18 turnovers, while the Wildcats' reserves accounted for 46 percent of UA's points on the day.

For the second straight game, the Wildcats struck first, as Alli Gloyd converted on jumper on UA's opening possession to put the Cats in front 2-0.

UA knocked down three of its first four shots from the field to eventually claim a 6-2 advantage with 17:54 remaining in the first half, after Washington drained a jumper from the right wing.

Washington then struck again, knocking down a three-ball from the top of the arc to spot Arizona a 9-5 lead with 16:45 left in the first half.

The Wildcats stayed within striking distance for most of the first half, as they trailed just 24-16 with 5:59 remaining in the opening 20 minutes, but the Bruins closed out the period on a 16-7 scoring surge to take a 40-23 lead into the intermission.

However, UCLA caught fire offensively in the second half, as it knocked down 16-of-32 shots from the floor for 50 percent en route to the victory.

The Wildcats will conclude the regular season with home contests against Colorado, Friday at 6 pm MST and Utah, Sunday at 3 pm MST. The Utah game will mark the final regular season home affair for seniors Alli Gloyd and Candice Warthen.

Both games can be seen on Pac-12 Networks and be heard locally on KTUC 1400 AM.
