AP - Sports

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Nirra Fields scored 21 points and Atonye Nyingifa added 14 and 10 rebounds as UCLA beat Utah 55-38 on Friday night.

It was Nyingifa's fifth double-double of the season for the Bruins (7-7, 1-1 Pac-12).

UCLA made its first three shots of the game and jumped out to a 10-0 lead that it never relinquished. UCLA grabbed seven steals by the 11:27 mark and led 22-4. Utah chipped away with a 9-4 run late and trailed the Bruins at the half, 28-16.

Utah resolved some of its turnover issues in the second half and cut its deficit under 10 on a jumper by Potter with 14:04 remaining. But UCLA picked up its defensive effort and an aggressive Fields helped the Bruins pull away.

Emily Potter led Utah 7-5 (0-1) with 10 points and Michelle Plouffe was one of four Utes with at least six rebounds, as she pulled down 10.
