Pluimer scores 27 points for UCLA win over Sac State

HONOLULU (AP) -- Lindsey Pluimer scored a career-high 27 points
and had eight rebounds to lead UCLA (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today; No. 21 AP) to an 87-64 win over Sacramento State on Saturday.

Noelle Quinn added 12 points and 11 assists and Chinyere Ibekwe
had 17 points and nine rebounds for UCLA (3-3) in a consolation
game at the Rainbow Wahine Classic. Amanda Livingston added 12
points and 10 rebounds.

Sophomore Atty Boyer led Sacramento State (1-5) with a
career-best 23 points and eight rebounds.

Quinn, the Bruins' leading scorer this season coming into the
tournament, had only one point Friday when she missed all 11 of her
shots in 36 minutes in a first-round loss to Gonzaga.

Using a half-court trap, UCLA took a 10-point lead, 27-17. Boyer
hit a shot at the buzzer to cut the gap at the half to 41-33.

UCLA quickly took a 21-point lead midway through the second half
and held off the Hornets.

UCLA moved on to the fifth-place game. Sacramento State will
play in the seventh-place game.
