LOS ANGELES (AP) - Atonye Nyingifa scored 22 points on 11-of-14 shooting to lead No. 17 UCLA to a 68-54 victory over USC on Tuesday night.
Nyingifa had help from Thea Lemberger (12 points), Jasmine Dixon (10 points) and Markel Walker (11 rebounds, eight assists) as the Bruins (20-6, 11-4 Pac-12) built a lead as large as 26 points and ended a two-game losing streak.
USC (8-18, 5-10) lost its seventh in a row, and its 18 losses are the second-most in school history, surpassed only by 20 losses in 1998-99.
Cassie Harberts, who began the night ranked third in the Pac-12 averaging 17.8 points per game, led USC with 17 points and nine rebounds. Ariya Crook added 10 points for the Trojans but was just 4 of 19 from the field. USC shot 28 percent for the game and was outrebounded 49-40.
USC and UCLA play again Sunday at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion.
