The Bruins have won four in a row, while the Tigers have taken six straight coming into this game between a pair of teams that are hoping to go dancing this year. Head Coach Frank Haith has his Tigers flying all over the place this year, averaging 78.2 points per game. The real key though, has been on the glass for this club, as it is averaging 47.2 boards per game and is +19.4 rebounds per game over its foes. Both marks are No. 1 in the country. The addition of F Alex Oriakhi really has made the difference, as he is averaging 9.1 rebounds and 10.8 points per game. There are seven players averaging at least four rebounds per night as well. G Jabari Brown is back in the fold as well for the ‘Zou, and he is adding just another scoring threat to a team that is already sneakily good. UCLA is averaging 79.6 points per game this year though, and it has a team that can win this game outright. G Shabazz Muhammad has scored at least 21 points in three games in a row, while G Jordan Adams is averaging 18.2 points per game as well. G Larry Drew II is good for over eight assists per game to boot. This just feels like a UCLA team that is going to pull it together and pull off the upset as long as it doesn’t get crushed on the glass.
