UCLA Women's Basketball Team Obliterates Senegalese Under-25 Team For Exhibition W

A rollicking start to their summer season!

Your UCLA Bruins women's hoops club enjoyed a productive debut bout in their international preseason exhibition tour, per a UCLA breakdown.

While at NBA Academy Africa on Wednesday, UCLA defeated the Senegal A' U25 National Team 87-59, thanks in large part to the prolific scoring efforts of 6'4" redshirt junior forward Angela Dugalic (who had a game-leading 20 points), 5'4" sophomore guard Londynn Jones (17) and 5'11" sophomore guard Kiki Rice (10). Jones and Rice have been enjoying an active summer. The duo enjoyed a solid run in this summer's U19 FIBA World Cup competition, winning their third gold medal in international FIBA competition.

Freshman forward Amanda Muse, a 6'4" Brentwood native, enjoyed a solid debut for her hometown club. She scored four points and pulled down five boards (three offensive) in modest minutes. Here's her first official output for UCLA:

6'2" Bruins sophomore forward Christeen Iwula was on the cusp of a double-double with eight points and a game-leading eight boards.

UCLA's succeeding matchup, a bout in Germany on Saturday against pro club Alba Berlin, wasn't quite as charmed. The Bruins lost 75-69, and a critical rotation player was (not-so-critically) injured early on in the proceedings. Check back in later for the full scoop.
