After losing three in a row, the final two of which came on the road, UCLA came back home for an extended period of time and took care of its business.
UCLA defeated Cal, Stanford and USC in three consecutive dating back two weeks ago to get back into contention for the Pac-12.
There are three teams ahead of UCLA and it is a full two games behind Arizona, which leads them all, but the Bruins have a chance to shave that lead in half with what would be a big road upset on Thursday night.
The Bruins have only played five true road games this entire season and at the only one that they won was at Cal, which is 2–9 and in second-to-last place in the conference.
This is the only meeting between UCLA and Arizona on the schedule this season. If the Bruins are to come from behind in the conference, this is a must-win. Otherwise, they’ll have to hope to see U of A again in the conference tournament.
KenPom has Arizona nearly 40 spots ahead of UCLA, better by more than 5.5 points.
The Wildcats lost their seven-game winning streak over the weekend with a three-point loss at Washington, which is in third-place in the conference but not regarded by many as much of a contender on the national scene.
Sean Miller was critical of his defense after the game, calling this year’s unit the worst he’s ever had in his 14 seasons as a head coach.
Defense is a problem for the ‘Cats but they can really score it. Allonzo Trier has been on fire from three-point range lately and is up over 41 percent on the season.
He and DeAndre Ayton are both a fraction of a point away from averaging 20 a game. All seven of Arizona’s main rotation guys shoot at least 34 percent from three.
CBB Betting Trends:
- UCLA are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games.
- Head to Head: Underdog is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
- Head to Head: Road team is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
Free UCLA vs. Arizona NCAAB Prediction: Arizona is just too good at home.
Arizona isn’t the best, defensively, no. But neither is UCLA and I don’t expect UCLA to dig in enough on that end to slow down the ‘Cats.
