SEATTLE (AP) — Brittany Wilson scored 17 points but a steal at the final minute may have blunted a last rally by UCLA as ninth-seeded Colorado defeated the eighth-seeded Bruins 76-65 in the opening round of the Pac-12 tournament on Thursday.

In a game of streaks, UCLA (13-18) had scored six unanswered points in just over a minute, cutting a 12-point gap in half. Colorado's Lexy Kresl sank two from the line and on UCLA's next possession Wilson stole the ball from the hot-shooting Nirra Fields with 1:03 to play. Wilson was fouled and hit two free throws as the lead grew back to 10, 72-62 with 1:02 left.

The win advances Colorado (17-13) to a quarterfinal game with No. 5-ranked and top-seeded Stanford (28-2) on Friday.

Fields scored 24 to lead UCLA with Atonye Nyingifa adding 13 and Madeline Brooks 12.

Ashley Wilson scored 16 for Colorado and Kresl 14.
