Natalie Chou and IImar’I Thomas lead No. 20 UCLA to victory over Virginia
Jaelynn Penn scored 16 points and joined Chou, Thomas and Dominique Onu with two 3-pointers. The Bruins (3-0) were 9 of 17 behind the arc (53%) and shot 51% overall (25 of 49).
The balanced scoring helped pick up the slack with leading scorer Charisma Osborne (21.5 ppg) out after injuring a foot in the last game. Osborne did not suit up but was walking on the sideline. UCLA was down to seven players for the game and three finished with four fouls.
IImar’I Thomas scored 21 points and Charisma Osborne had 19 points before leaving with an injury in UCLA’s 73-46 win over Cal State Northridge.
Carole Miller led the Cavaliers (0-4) with 14 points.
The Bruins head to Florida for the Gulf Coast Showcase with three games in three days, beginning Friday.
