The No. 12 Longhorns women's basketball team suffered their first loss of the season 62-42 to No. 17 UCLA at Reliant Stadium. The Bruins were led by Alyssia Brewer's 12 points and 11 rebounds.

The game was close throughout the first 10 minutes with only a one-point margin into the second media timeout. From there, the Longhorns lost their grip. The Bruins went on a 21-5 run to end the half. During that span, the lady Longhorns went 1-for-19 from the field and committed nine turnovers.

Nneka Enemkpali paced the Longhorns with 16 points, 12 rebounds and three steals.

Louisiana-Monroe is next on the schedule for the Longhorns followed by a tough road game at No. 14 Tennessee on Dec. 16.
