LOS ANGELES – Markel Walker had 17 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists, and No. 18 UCLA beat 22nd-ranked Colorado 62-46 on Friday night for the Bruins' third straight victory.
Jasmine Dixon grabbed 10 rebounds in helping the Bruins (16-4, 7-2 Pac-12) control the boards 44-29 against the league's second-best rebounding team. Walker bounced back after having just two points in 19 minutes in a win against Arizona State last weekend.
Brittany Wilson scored 12 points and Chucky Jeffery added 11 points for the Buffaloes (15-5, 4-5), who lost their third in a row against a ranked opponent on the road. The Buffs were swept by California and Stanford last weekend, the two teams that have accounted for four of their five losses.
