It would be very bad if the UCLA Basketball team tries to coast through this game. Arizona State may be 9-9, but as we have seen, UCLA has occasionally allowed their opponents back into games after taking big leads. It is not as bad as last year, but it has happened.
The Bruins need to be focused in this game and not look ahead to their pending Top 25 matchup with #14 Arizona on Saturday. Get that out of your minds, Bruins! You have Sun Devils to extinguish.
If UCLA plays their game, then this should be a blow out. ASU has all kinds of issues and it does not seem as though things will get better against UCLA.
The Sun Devils are giving up more points per game than they are making. ASU is only averaging 81.6 ppg and allowing 82.9. Against the Bruins, that might go up significantly as UCLA is putting up 92.9 ppg.
