The No. 18 UCLA Bruins (15-8, 8-6 Pac-12) converted almost 37 percent of their swings en route to a sweep over Arizona State (10-16, 0-14 Pac-12) 25-16, 25-16, 25-21 on Saturday night.

The Sun Devils were once again without sophomore outside hitter Ivana Jeremic and leaned heavily on freshman outside hitter Griere Hughes who led ASU with 13 kills on 29 swings with only four errors.

The rest of the Sun Devil offense only combined for 20 kills all together and paired that with nine errors.

The Bruins had three players reach double digits in kills with outsides senior Reily Buechler and freshman May Mac putting down 12 and 10, respectively.

As a team, the Bruins posted .366 hitting percentage and only had nine errors in the whole match.

They sided out at a 74.1 percent clip, squelching any sort of momentum that the Sun Devils would try to get going.

Senior libero Halle Harker was a lone bright spot for ASU once again, digging up 22 balls in the sweep. Her total career digs continue to climb in the ranks of Sun Devil history. She is now 110 digs short of second all-time in the program.

The Sun Devils will head back home for the final time this season, looking desperately to get their first Pac-12 victory.

They will take on the No. 10 Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers. ASU will be playing the Beavers on senior night.
