BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Arielle Roberson scored 14 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Colorado dominated the second half in a 62-42 win over UCLA on Friday night.

UCLA went into the break leading 30-27 but stumbled after the intermission, making just 1 of 15 shots — and all five free throws — to start the second half. The Bruins scored just 12 points after halftime, their lowest scoring half all season, while making just 3 of 25 field goals (12 percent).

The Bruins finished the game 15 of 50 (30 percent) from the floor and committed 19 turnovers, which Colorado (16-12, 6-11 Pac-12) turned into 18 points. UCLA turned 13 Colorado turnovers into just two points.

The Buffaloes out-rebounded UCLA 42-32 and outscored the Bruins 26-14 in the paint.

Jamee Swan scored 14 points and Haley Smith added 11 and eight rebounds for Colorado.

Atonye Nyingifa paced UCLA (12-17, 6-11) with 12 points.
