The lady Jayhawks will travel to UCLA for the first time in program history. The alltime series between KU and UCLA is knotted at 1 victory a piece, with the last meeting coming in 1990 (a 76-63 KU win in Iowa City, IA). UCLA beat KU, 73-71, in AFH in March 1981.

UCLA is off to a red hot 8-1 start (lone loss on the road to Maryland) under the direction of first year head coach Nikki Caldwell. Caldwell arrived from her alma mater Tennessee where she was part of the last two national championship teams.

The Bruins will be a stiff test for the 7-1 jayhawks, as they lead the nation in rebounding margin at an amazing +17.2.

KU is 11-11 all-time versus the PAC-10 Conference. Kansas head coach Bonnie Henrickson is 5-1 (.857 winning percentage) versus the PAC-10 Conference in her career, but will be facing UCLA for the first time.

To counter UCLA's rebounding prowess, the ladies will need to be stroking the 3 balls. Kansas has been extremely accurate from long range as it is connecting on 41.6 percent of its shots from beyond the arc. KU ranks first in the Big 12 Conference and fourth in the NCAA in three-point field goal percentage.

For what it's worth, the Kansas women are 8-7 all-time in games played on Dec. 21.

i see uncla's only legit opponent was maryland, which drubbed the bruin women. unkansas should take this one down to the wire then likely lose down the stretch, as it's tough to win on the road.
