    CORVALLIS, Ore.(AP) -- Nikki Blue had 17 points, 10 assists and six steals, and Lisa Willis added 13 points, 12 rebounds and five steals to lead UCLA over Oregon State 74-54 on Saturday night.

    UCLA (13-7, 7-4 Pac-10) missed 12 of its first 13 shots and fell behind 10-2. But the Bruins crashed the offensive boards, fixed their shot selection and promptly went on a 20-4 run to take control.

    Casey Bunn had 15 points for the Beavers (5-15, 1-10), who have lost nine of their last ten games. Anita Rivera added 10 points off the bench for the Beavers, who missed 16 of 18 3-point attempts.

    UCLA established a 35-20 lead at the break and then scored the first nine points of the second half to turn the game into a rout. The Bruins led by 32 points at one point before letting their reserves finish up.

    The Bruins won 73-45 when the two teams met Jan. 2 in Los Angeles.

    Shannon Howell, Oregon State's leading scorer with a 16-point average, shot 2-of-12 from the field and finished with just nine points.

    The Beavers are tied for last place in the conference with Washington State, which is also the only Pac-10 team they have beaten this year. ^
