Associated Press  |  Last updated February 03, 2013
Alyssia Brewer scored 16 points and No. 18 UCLA's defense forced 18 turnovers in a 70-42 victory over Utah on Sunday, extending the Bruins' winning streak to four games. Antonye Nyingifa added 13 points and eight rebounds, and Nirra Fields had 11 points for the Bruins (17-4, 8-2 Pac-12), who have won 10 of 12. They had 11 turnovers after committing a season-high 29 in Friday's win over No. 22 Colorado. Michelle Plouffe had 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Iwalani Rodrigues added 11 points for the Utes (11-10, 2-8). They've lost four straight - all on the road - and 10 of 11 after winning their first seven games. UCLA had the game under control from the start, racing to a 14-1 lead as the Utes missed all eight of their field-goal attempts and committed nine turnovers. Utah didn't score its first basket until Plouffe's layup at 11:19. The Bruins extended their lead to 25-5, with Jasmine Dixon and Brewer scoring four points each and Kari Korver hitting a 3-pointer. They shot 44 percent in the half and led 34-16 at the break. Utah got no closer than 17 points early in the second half on a 3-pointer by Rodrigues. UCLA answered with eight straight points, capped by a 3-pointer from Fields, to lead 44-19. The Utes put together their only extended run of the game, 12-6, to get to 50-31. Then the Bruins took over again, outscoring Utah 13-2 to take a 63-33 lead. Brewer had seven points and Fields had her third 3-pointer as UCLA closed in on its 10th straight home conference win. Kacy Swain had 11 rebounds in helping the Bruins control the boards, 42-30. They shot 42 percent from the floor and 3-point range while owning a 32-12 edge in the paint.
