The UCLA Basketball team just lost in heart breaking fashion and that is not going to sit well with them. The Bruins just lost to the top team in the Pac-12 and will most likely get a win against the worst team in the Pac-12 tonight against Oregon State.
The Beavers will be without their top scorer Tres Trinkle (20.2 ppg) who is out with a broken wrist, so the Beavers will need to rely on Thompson and Eubanks to put up points.
Unfortunately for OSU, the Bruins have more players that could do the same. UCLA is doing a great job sharing the ball and has six players that are averaging more than 12 points per game. The Bruins have offense, but how is their defense?
In the last few games, we have seen inconsistencies with the defense, but they have had some decent efforts. If UCLA can keep up the defensive pressure the entire game, then the Bruins will run away with this. If not, they should still win, it will just not be as dominant.
Lonzo Ball – 13.7 ppg, 8.1 asts, 5.6 rebs, 1.4 stls
Aaron Holiday – 143.9 ppg, 4.5 asts, .525 FG%, .500 3FG%
TJ Leaf – 17.2 ppg, 9.2 rebs, .655 FG%, .500 3FG%
Players to Watch:
Thomas Welsh – Welsh returned from a four game absence due to a bruised knee against Oregon and anded his fifth double-double of the season. With that kind of effort against the conference’s best team, imagine what he will do agains the conference’s worst team.
Prediction: UCLA 92 – Oregon State 67
