Women’s basketball loses two games over weekend, sets sights on deep NCAA run

UCLA women's basketball coach Cori Close said she believes that the Bruins have proven that they are a top-half conference team so far in their first four Pac-12 games. UCLA will face crosstown rival USC this weekend for their second meeting of the season.

Cori Close said the Bruins experienced two different shooting performances in their two losses this past weekend. “It was totally different,” the coach said. “I didn’t think shots were hard to come by on Friday (against Oregon State) … (but) I didn’t feel like we ever got in an offensive rhythm (against Oregon).” UCLA women’s basketball (9-8, 2-3 Pac-12) was outdone by No.
