UCLA Women’s Basketball Dominates Professional Team on Foreign Tour

Impressive Victory in Munich Highlights Bruins' Pre-Season Performance

Last season proved to be a remarkable one for UCLA women’s basketball, showcasing their prowess on multiple fronts. The team secured a place in the championship game of the Pac-12 Tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament, where they were eventually defeated by South Carolina, the top-seeded team bound for the Final Four.

UCLA’s ambitions to build on their past success are evident this season. The journey began with a series of exhibition games as part of the Bruins’ foreign tour. Culminating their tour with a visit to Germany, the team seized the opportunity to explore the renowned Bayern Munich soccer stadium before facing off against TS Jahn München, a professional squad situated in Munich.

The game turned out to be quite one-sided, as UCLA outplayed TS Jahn München with a staggering score of 126-23, effectively concluding their foreign tour on a triumphant note.

Yes, you read that right. The Bruins emerged victorious against a team of seasoned professionals, establishing an impressive lead of 103 points.

Of course, it’s important to consider certain nuances regarding the final score. Some players from TS Jahn München were unable to participate due to illness. Nonetheless, the outcome speaks volumes about UCLA’s preparation for the upcoming 2023-2024 regular season. It’s worth noting that the Bruins also faced the challenge of missing their key point guard, Kiki Rice, who was sidelined due to an injury. A remarkable seven Bruins achieved double-digit scores during this resounding victory. Among them, sophomore Gabriela Jaquez stood out with an impressive 27 points to her name.

With star players like Charisma Osborne, Rice, and the versatile guard/forward Jaquez, UCLA boasts an impressive roster. Their final season in the Pac-12 conference positions them as strong contenders for the title once again.

As the regular season approaches, time will unveil the true potential of the Bruins. However, their spectacular victory during this foreign tour might just serve as a promising indicator of the success that UCLA could achieve in the upcoming season.
