Adrianne Thomas scored 11 points and hit a key 3-pointer to lift No. 23 Arizona State to a 59-57 victory over UCLA on Sunday.

Luiana Livulo made a jumper for UCLA that tied it at 54 with 2:06 remaining. Thomas hit her 3-pointer and Joy Burke made a layup to give the Sun Devils a 59-54 lead with 55 seconds to play. Thea Lemberger's jumper and a free throw by Nirra Fields pulled the Bruins within two with 17 seconds left.

Elisha Davis missed both free throws during the Sun Devils' next possession, but the Bruins couldn't capitalize as Antonye Nyingifa missed a 3-pointer with 15 seconds left and then Rehma Gardner missed a shot at the buzzer.

No. 23 Arizona State (14-2, 3-1 Pac-12) remains unbeaten at home. UCLA (8-9, 2-3) has lost three conference games by a combined six points.
