This matchup will feature the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors out of the Big West conference and the UCLA Bruins out of the PAC-12. This will another chance for both teams to get a non-conference win as we start to inch closer to the start of conference play.
These teams last met 18 years ago, resulting in a 84-64 win for the Bruins. The Bruins will look to pick up their fifth win of the season and remain unbeaten at home when they take on Hawaii in Los Angeles.
Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
The Rainbow have not looked great as of late, losing their last two games. Both these losses came on a neutral site. This game at UCLA will be their first true road game of the season, and they will be looking to pick up a quality win over a Power five conference school.
The Rainbow Warriors’ offense has not been particularly great this season, especially in their last two games. They are averaging just 73.7 points per game overall this season. They are led by Jack Purchase, who is averaging a team high 12.4 points per game. This is concerning for Hawaii because they do not seem to have a superstar who can take over a game. They will need someone to step up and have a breakout performance if they are going to beat the Bruins.
Defensively the Rainbow Warriors will need to focus on limiting the second chance points. They allow about 28.4 rebounds per game, and seeing that the Bruins average 44.3 rebounds, it will be a major focal point if they are going to pull off an upset.
The Bruins were blown out in their previous two games. One of these losses came to Michigan State and the second to North Carolina. These losses should have given the Bruins a good idea where they are talent wise and should help them determine what needs to be improved.
The Bruins are scoring the ball relatively easy, averaging 84.5 points per game. As mentioned, the last two games were the only ones in which they struggled to score the ball. The Bruins are led by Kris Wilkes, who leads the team in scoring, with 17.8 points per game. Look for the Bruins to feed Wilkes the ball as they search to get back into the win column.
Overall the Bruins defense has been very solid. They allow an average of 75.8 points per game and their opponents are shooting below 40% from both the field and from behind the three point line. In order to win this game they will need to focus on forcing turnovers and getting easy buckets on the break.
