Colorado had a great week last week but couldn’t keep the mojo going losing at USC. Until they can win a game on the road it is hard to think much of this group.
UCLA is off a very impressive win over Utah. The Utes are not great but the Bruins dispatched them with ease. Like they should have.
At their best the Buffs can be good but not great. Their struggles on the road are well documented though. This hardly looks like the spot to grab their first true road win.
McKinley Wright is the key but he is going to have to do more than just score. He has to try and check Aaron Holiday, that is not a matchup I see him winning.
The Buffs could not have been flatter losing at USC midweek. They only scored 58 points despite making 43% of their treys. 19 turnovers killed them.
They can improve in that area but it is hard on a relatively short turnaround. Wright was terrible in the loss and he is their best player by far, I think.
There is a lot to like about UCLA. They are not the deepest group but their ceiling is high, especially at home where only Cincinnati has beaten them.
Holiday continues to show his game and is making a push for All Amercan status. He has scored 20 or more in five of the last six.
Colorodo does not have a lot of size this season but the Bruins do. They have Thomas Welsh the seven foot shooter and Gyorgy Goloman to eat up space inside.
Kris Wilkes is the kind of player who could lead the nation in scoring if he stuck around for more than one season. Instead he might be in the NBA next year.

Free Colorado Buffaloes vs UCLA Bruins NCAAB Prediction:
The Buffs were -11.5 at USC and lost by 12. Now they are -12 for this one. Interesting comparison.
This will be a big test for Tad Boyle to get the team back on track. They lost by 24 last year at UCLA.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCLA -12
Not a ton of value here but I UCLA can run thing up just enough. They will get the pace they want.
