Women's basketball: UCLA advances to Pac-10 tournament final with 63-50 victory over Cal


UCLA's women's basketball team will get another shot at Stanford.

The second-seeded Bruins cruised over California, 63-50, in a semifinal of the Pacific Life Pac-10 tournament at Staples Center to earn their third matchup of the season against the top-seeded Cardinal.

Atonye Nyingfa scored 17 points, and Darxia Morris added 14 for the Bruins, who led 37-23 at halftime and never looked back in improving their record to 27-3.

Two of those losses, however, came against Stanford, and neither was close.

Earlier Friday, Stanford rolled to a 100-71 victory over Arizona.
