The Wildcats and the Bruins are both fantastic teams, and we wouldn’t be all that surprised to see either one in the Final Four when push came to shove this year. That being said, this is going to be a game where the hosts are getting just far too much respect. Arizona has been great this year on both sides of the court, ranking in the Top 70 in virtually every major category both offensively and defensively. The team has had its share of problems of late, though. Wins over San Diego State, Colorado, and Utah all came by the skins of the Wildcats’ teeth, and though the team did finish this three-game road trip by beating both Arizona State and Oregon State soundly, we still have our concerns. UCLA is probably the best team that the Cats have faced since beating San Diego State. The Bruins were rolling right along until they were stopped up by Oregon over the weekend in a bit of a surprising defeat at Pauley Pavilion. We think that the Bruins could be set to get back on track in this one, and we wouldn’t be shocked if there were an upset in the making.
UCLA vs. Arizona Pick: UCLA Bruins +9
UCLA vs. Arizona Prediction: UCLA 68 – Arizona 66
