Pac-12 play continues with a battle of two top 10 teams. The Oregon Ducks, coming off an unbelievable performance in a 27-point win over Arizona, will head to Los Angeles to take on the UCLA Bruins at historic Pauley Pavilion.
Oregon has had a wonderful season, highlighted by last weekend’s trouncing of a fantastic Arizona Wildcat team. The Ducks were unstoppable shooting the ball and capitalized on one of Arizona’s worst shooting performances of the year.
Oregon shot 65% from the field and 64% from behind the 3-point line. The team couldn’t miss.
While you shouldn’t expect that stellar of a shooting night against a tough UCLA Bruin team, there’s no doubt that Oregon will look to continue shooting the ball well and take advantage of its solid perimeter shooting.
Sophomore guard Tyler Dorsey has been one of those solid perimeter shooters this year. He’s shooting 40% from behind the arc and averaging 12.6 points per game.
Forward Dillon Brooks has been good for the Ducks, too. He shoots over 50% from the field and averages 14.3 points per game. Brooks had a very nice 18-point performance in that win against Arizona and he’ll look to follow up on that with a great game against UCLA.
After losing back-to-back games against Arizona and USC, UCLA bounced right back with monster wins over Washington State and Washington. The Bruins have been a very good team all season and have a lot of players making things happen on both ends of the court.
The Bruins are a brilliant offensive team, averaging just under 93 points and putting it 2nd in the nation in points per game.
Freshmen TJ Leaf and Lonzo Ball have been such important additions to this UCLA squad. Leaf is nearly averaging a double-double with 17.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. Leaf is able to pound the ball inside and get a lot of quality looks at the rim. He shoots over 63% from the field.
Lonzo Ball has been a quality player as well in what will likely be his only college season. He’s averaging 15.1 points and 7.8 assists per game. He’s also shooting 54% from the field and 43% from behind the arc.
Ball has the ability to penetrate the defense and both score or find the open man.
To beat Oregon, Ball will need to dictate the pace of the offense, finding ways to get guys open and get himself to the bucket.
CBB Betting Trends:
- UCLA is 2-3 ATS in the last five games
- The Total has gone OVER in four of Oregon’s last five games
