LOS ANGELES – Markel Walker led five players in double figures with 14 points and No. 10 UCLA defeated Oregon 87-57 Saturday, winning its fifth in a row while holding the Pac-10's second-best offense to a season low in points.
Doreena Campbell added 13 points, Darxia Morris and Atonye Nyingifa 12 each, and Jasmine Dixon 11 for the Bruins (15-1, 5-0 Pac-10), who continued the program's best start since the 1976-77 team opened 18-1.
Amanda Johnson scored 12 points for the Ducks (11-5, 2-3), who split their road trip after edging Southern California 79-76 on Thursday.
They came in averaging 76.4 points in coach Paul Westhead's famed run-and-gun offense that he successfully employed with Loyola Marymount's men's team in the late 1980s and early '90s.
But UCLA's pressure defense forced 31 turnovers and harassed the Ducks into 21 of 54 shooting.
It was the most points scored by the Bruins this season; they had been averaging 64.8. They shot 53 percent from the floor and controlled the boards, 43-32.
UCLA has won 13 regular-season Pac-10 games in a row, with its last loss coming against Stanford last January. The Bruins visit the No. 4 Cardinal on Thursday in a matchup of teams tied for first in the league.
The Bruins came out much more energized than they did in a 58-46 win over Oregon two days earlier.
Oregon's 45-18 deficit at the break was the largest the Ducks have faced this season, while their 18 points were their fewest in a first half this season.
UCLA raced to a 17-6 lead, then extended it to 37-13 with 18 unanswered points by five different players. Walker had a 3-pointer and a three-point play in the spurt as the Ducks went 6½ minutes without a basket.
The Bruins continued building their lead in the second half, going up by 37.
