Gabriela Jaquez scored 14 points, Charisma Osborne had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 18 UCLA beat Oregon State 62-54 on Friday night at Pauley Pavilion for the Beavers’ fifth straight loss.

Oregon State took a 51-46 lead with 7:13 remaining in the fourth quarter but didn’t make another field goal the rest of the way.

UCLA capitalized on back-to-back turnovers by Oregon State, leading to two fast-break layups by Jaquez during a 12-0 run that gave the Bruins a 58-51 lead.


Amari Bailey scored a career-high 24 points as No. 7 UCLA shook off a slow start to put on a defensive 62-47 win over Oregon State on Thursday.

Emily Bessoir missed the second of two free throws with 33 seconds left, but Lina Sontag grabbed the offensive rebound before being fouled and making one of two for a 60-54 lead.

Kiki Rice and Sontag each had 11 points for UCLA (19-6, 8-5 Pac-12). The Bruins finished three for 27 from long distance, with their first three-pointer, in 15 attempts, coming with 2:39 left in the third quarter to pull to within 43-39.

UCLA had buzzer-beaters to end the second and third quarters.

Bendu Yeaney led Oregon State (11-13, 3-10) with 11 points. Talia von Oelhoffen, averaging a team-high 14.5 points, was held to four points on one-for-nine shooting. Freshman Raegan Beers was helped off the floor with 1:50 left in the third quarter after a hard fall under the basket, and she finished with three points in 17 minutes.

Oregon State started the second half on a 12-2 run, opened and closed by three-pointers from Noelle Mannen and Shalexxus Aaron, to take a 41-33 lead.

UCLA softball lost some of its best players from last year, but Maya Brady and the Bruins hope to make another NCAA title run in 2023.
