LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michaela Onyenwere scored 17 points, Lauren Miller added 16 and eighth-ranked UCLA completed a season sweep of No. 13 Oregon for the first time in five years with a 83-56 victory at Pauley Pavillion Friday night.

The Bruins (13-3, 11-3 Pac-12) are not known for their 3-point shooting, but made 10 of 22 from beyond the arc, which is their second-highest total of the season. Onyenwere had three 3-pointers along with six rebounds and four assists.

UCLA also dominated on the board with a 47-24 rebounding advantage. Lindsey Corsaro had seven boards as the Bruins had five players with five or more rebounds.

Oregon (12-6, 9-6 Pac-12) has dropped three straight for the first time since 2016-17. It was the biggest regular season loss for the Ducks since a 27-point defeat to Stanford in 2016. Oregon also lost by 21 points to Stanford the next year.

Natalie Chou (14), Charisma Osborne (13) and Chantal Horvat (10) also scored in double figures for UCLA, which has won three straight and eight of its last nine.

Nyara Sabally led Oregon with 12 points and Te-Hina Paopao added 11.

The Bruins led throughout with four of their first six baskets being 3-pointers, including one from Onyenwere that gave them a 16-6 advantage with 4:38 remaining in the first quarter. UCLA closed the quarter on a 12-3 run and had a 28-11 lead after 10 minutes.

UCLA extended its lead to 46-22 at halftime as it closed the second quarter with 11 straight points. Oregon made its first three shots in the quarter before missing 12 of its last 13.

The Bruins' largest lead was 75-47 midway through the fourth quarter.

BIG PICTURE

Oregon: The Ducks are winless in six games against ranked teams after going 12-1 last season.

UCLA: Coach Cori Close implored her team about playing a complete game and her players responded to the message. A rout of Oregon will certainly raise more than a few eyebrows.
