CHAPEL HILL, N.C. —

No. 18 UCLA 70, Utah 42:

LOS ANGELES — Alyssia Brewer scored 16 points and UCLA’s defense forced 18 turnovers in a victory over Utah that extended the Bruins’ winning streak to four games.

Antonye Nyingifa added 13 points and eight rebounds, and Nirra Fields had 11 points for the Bruins (17-4, 8-2 Pac-12), who have won 10 of 12.

They had 11 turnovers after committing a season-high 29 in Friday’s win over No. 22 Colorado.

Michelle Plouffe had 14 points and 12 rebounds, and Iwalani Rodrigues added 11 points for the Utes (11-10, 2-8). They’ve lost four straight — all on the road — and 10 of 11 after winning their first seven games.

NO. 20 FLORIDA ST. 83, CLEMSON 61

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Natasha Howard had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and every Florida State starter reached double figures in a win over Clemson.

The Seminoles (18-4, 8-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won six of seven, with the lone loss coming against No. 11 North Carolina on Jan. 31.

Howard became the 28th FSU player to surpass 1,000 points for her career. Chelsea Davis also had 19 points, Leonor Rodriguez and Alexa Deluzio added 16, and Morgan Toles 10 for the Seminoles.

Quinyotta Pettaway turned in 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers (6-15, 2-8), who have lost three of their past four, with all the losses coming to ranked ACC opponents.

WEST VIRGINIA 82, NO. 21 OKLAHOMA 63

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Christal Caldwell scored 24 points and freshman Bria Holmes came off the bench to score 17, leading West Virginia past Oklahoma.

Holmes picked up the scoring load for Taylor Palmer, who got into early foul trouble after scoring 30 points for the Mountaineers (13-8, 5-5 Big 12) in a 71-68 loss to the Sooners Jan. 2.

West Virginia held Oklahoma (16-5, 6-3) to 22.7 percent shooting (5 of 22) from 3-point range. The Sooners ranked third in the country at 39.5 percent per game.
