Antelope Valley Press - - SPORTS - By JOSH DUBOW

STAN­FORD — Michaela Onyen­were had 29 points and 10 re­bounds and No. 10 UCLA pulled away from No. 6 Stan­ford late for a 7969 vic­tory Fri­day night that moved the Bru­ins into a tie for sec­ond place in the Pac12 with the Car­di­nal.

Onyen­were got a steal and a layup late in the third quar­ter to give UCLA (20-2, 9-2) the lead for good and then added seven points early in the fourth to help the Bru­ins take con­trol.

Chantel Hor­vat scored ca­reer-high 14 points off the bench for UCLA and Japreece Dean added 11.

Kiana Wil­liams scored 25 points but it wasn’t enough to pre­vent the Car­di­nal (20-3, 9-2) from hav­ing their 16-game home win­ning streak snapped. La­cie Hull added 12 and Ashten Prech­tel had 10 points and 12 re­bounds.

UCLA scored 10 straight points start­ing late in the first quar­ter and even­tu­ally built a nine-point lead as Stan­ford missed 15 of 17 shots. But Hull hit a 3-pointer just be­fore the half­time buzzer to cut the Bru­ins led to 35-30.

Wil­liams sparked the Car­di­nal in an im­pres­sive stretch in the third quar­ter with an out­let pass to Prech­tel for a layup, a pull-up jumper and then a 3-pointer to put Stan­ford up 45-44.

But the Bru­ins then cap­i­tal­ized on five turnovers in the fi­nal four min­utes of the quar­ter to take a 5045 lead head­ing into the fourth when Hor­vat hit a

layup just be­fore the buzzer. BIG PIC­TURE

UCLA: The big road win against a top 10 team keeps the Bru­ins within strik­ing dis­tance of No. 3 Ore­gon in the Pac-12 stand­ings. UCLA hosts the Ducks next Fri­day night in what could be a show­down for first place in the con­fer­ence.

Stan­ford: With star fresh­man Ha­ley Jones side­lined by a knee in­jury, the Car­di­nal

didn’t have enough scor­ing op­tions to hang with the Bru­ins and shot just 36.6% for the game. Wil­liams did her best with three 3-point­ers in the first quar­ter and that spurt in the third. But she went 1 for 10 with two turnovers down the stretch. UP NEXT
