Westmont Routed by UCLA in Exhibition Matchup

In their second competition of the season, second ranked Westmont Women’s Basketball (1-0) traveled to Los Angeles to take on the UCLA Bruins in an exhibition game. In this tough matchup, the Warriors fell to the Bruins by a score of 45-80.

UCLA went on a 12-3 run in the first 2 minutes and thirty seconds of the game and then a few minutes later, went on a 14-0 run to finish out the quarter (9-29).

The Warriors tried to harness some momentum and scored the first five points of the second quarter. Joy Krupa had two free-throws and Aimee Brakken put up a three-pointer. The Bruins and the Warriors went back and forth for most of the quarter, until the last two minutes when the Warriors went on a 6-0 run to finish out the half (24-43). Kayla Sato scored all six points with two free-throws, a layup, and a jump shot.

Towards the end of the third quarter, the Bruins increased their lead to thirty when they went on a 9-2 run that lasted for four minutes and 35 seconds (33-63). In the beginning of the fourth period, the Warriors went on a 5-0 run to decrease UCLA’s lead to 25, however the Bruins responded with a 13-3 run that lasted until the end of the game.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
