LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gennifer Brandon scored 16 points to lead a balanced offense as No. 6 California beat No. 15 UCLA 79-51 Friday night, handing the Bruins their first home loss of the season.

Brittany Boyd and Layshia Clarendon had 14 points each and Reshanda Gray added 10 to lead the Bears (22-2, 12-1 Pac-12) to their 10th straight win.

Atonye Nyingifa scored 20 points for UCLA (19-5, 10-3 Pac-12), which had won six straight since a loss at California on Jan. 20.

Cal built a 19-point lead in the first half and led by 18 at the break. UCLA got no closer than 11 points in the second half. The Bruins shot just 34 percent (19 for 56) from the field.

Cal hasn't lost since a defeat to No. 4 Stanford on Jan. 8.
