The Bruins were poised at the beginning of the season to make a strong push toward a Pac-12 Title and deep into March.
If they do make a deep push into March, it might be in the NIT or even CIT.
Meanwhile, Colorado does sit at 19-8, but it’s hard to justify them being a bubble team as they are a middle of the pack Pac-12 team.
The Buffs do have the ability to make a late run and impress the committee.
They come in off a horrible loss as they blew a 15 point lead against the Trojans and eventually lost, pushing USC ahead of them in the standings.
Colorado must now rebound on the road and it starts with their shooting. Josh Fortune has shot just 24.4% over the past 4 games and continues to struggle. He sits 3rd on the team with 10.7 points per game. His ability to hit the jump shot and step behind the arc is what propels this team.
A loss to Colorado would secure UCLA a losing season, the first time they would do that since 2009-2010.
The Bruins have dropped 3 of their last 4 games at home to fall into the bottom tier of the Pac-12. They sit at 5-8 in the conference, just 1 game ahead of 2nd last Arizona State.
F Tony Parker, who was supposed to be the star here at UCLA continues to lose production, thus turning him into a bench guy.
Parker has played just 13 and 15 minutes over the last 2 games and has struggled to find any consistency.
UCLA is having one of their worst home seasons in quite some time as they bring in just a 6-8 ATS record.

Free Colorado Buffaloes vs. UCLA Bruins CBB Prediction:
UCLA has lost all hope of an at large bid and will need to win the conference to get into March.
The Bruins just aren’t the same team as the past seasons and with Colorado trying to get back into the top tier of the Pac-12.
Laying points with UCLA is just too tough here. Look for the Bruins to continue their slump and the Buffaloes to come on the road and grab an outright win.
