Nirra Fields scored 20 points and Jordin Canada had 16 for UCLA (4-7). The Bruins are 0-5 against Top 25 teams this season.
UCLA hung around for much of a back-and-forth first half, but Notre Dame unleashed a 13-3 run in the final minutes to go ahead by double-figures and cruise into halftime up 42-29.
Notre Dame shot 45% in the first half, including five of seven from three-point range, while holding the Bruins to 26% (10 of 38) shooting.
Not much changed in the second half, as the Fighting Irish kept a comfortable lead throughout and never let UCLA get closer than nine points.
The Bruins struggled to shoot from pretty much anywhere. They shot 33.3% (23 of 69) from the field overall, 32% (seven of 22) from three-point range and 52% (14 of 27) from the free-throw line.
