College Basketball Picks: Arizona Wildcats @ UCLA Bruins
Date: Saturday, March 2nd, 9:00 ET
Location: Pauley Pavilion, Los Angeles, CA
Arizona vs. UCLA Live TV: ESPN
The Wildcats and the Bruins meet up in the best game of the day in the Pac-12. Arizona has a lot to prove at this point, as it has lost three of its last six games and is just 2-5 ATS in its last seven overall. The Cats just aren’t really getting the job done offensively, averaging just 69.3 points per game in that stretch. There have been some good defensive games, but there was also that 89-point outing just a few nights ago against the USC Trojans to discuss. G Nick Johnson is averaging 11.4 points per game this year, but he is on a streak right now of seven out of eight games scoring nine points or fewer, and that isn’t going to cut it for the Cats. UCLA is the play on Saturday night to make. The team has won three straight and five out of six, and it is most certainly streaking towards the NCAA Tournament. This is the final game of the year at Pauley Pavilion, and quite likely the final home game for G Shabazz Muhammad, and he and his teammates are going to want to make that home court advantage stick. In a de facto pick ’em game, we have to take the Bruins.
