LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jordin Canada had 21 points and five assists and Monique Billings scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds to help the No. 13 UCLA women beat Stanford 64-53 on Sunday.
Kennedy Burke added 10 points for UCLA (15-4, 6-2 Pac-12). The Bruins have won six of their last seven games, including four in a row.
Stanford (12-8, 6-2) missed its first six field-goal attempts and UCLA never trailed. Canada scored five points during a 10-0 opening run and Lauren Miller made a layup to make it 22-10 at the end of the first quarter. The Bruins took their biggest lead when a layup by Billings made it 47-34 early in the fourth quarter and UCLA hit 15 of 18 from the free-throw line, including 10 of 12 by Canada, from there to seal it.
Kiana Williams, the only Cardinal player to score in double figures, had 14 points. Stanford made 6 of 24 from 3-point range and shot just 45 percent (5 of 11) from the foul line.
