This is a great game on Saturday. Two undefeated teams and two of the most stories programs in the sport.
UCLA looks great right now. Lonzo Ball is a wizard and he is surrounded by lots of talent.
Coach Cal has another roster littered with top frosh. The Wildcats have yet to be challenged this season but their are few tams who can really look them in the eye.
Lonzo Ball is proving to be a special player and you can easily make the assessment that he is the most impactful freshman in America.
Ball is only the fourth leading scorer on the team but he is masterful at getting the most out of the players around him and he has a lot of options to choose from.
Top scorer Isaac Hamilton is a classic two guard. He just dropped 27 on UC Riverside and is off to a great shooting start. The whole team is making 45% of its three.
Second leading scorer T.J. Leaf is also having a fabulous frosh season. He is the perfect stretch four with the ability to beat teams from outside the arc. He is averaging 17ppg and 9rpg.
Even thought the freshman are leading the way the Bruins still have Bryce Alford.
The coach’s son gets to play off the ball this season and his shooting numbers are way up. He also gives this team a little bit of extra fight.
Center Thomas Welsh makes sure the Bruins do not get pushed around down low. He is an efficient scorer and rebounder and on a lesser team he would probably be the star.
Once again the Wildcats are being led by a super freshman class. Malik Monk is leading the team in scoring though based on the hyperbole coming into the season he might be underperforming.
He is not offering much more than his 19ppg either.
The guy who has gotten a lot of attention is De’Aaron Fox.
He is averaging 15ppg while leading the team in assists and second in rebounds, pretty good for a 6’3″ point guard.
Isaiah Briscoe is the rare holdover for UK but he is taking advantage of the opportunity.
His scoring has doubled this season. He likely has the responsibility of containing Ball which will be as important as any scoring he does.
Inside Bam Adebayo has been OK. I haven’t gone through all of the rosters of their opponents but this might be the first game he will really be tested physically.
They are going to need him to contribute more.

Free UCLA Bruins vs. Kentucky Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
UCLA is more than talented enough to deliver a first loss to Kentucky.
Doing so on the road would be a bit of a surprise though, given how much they are also relying on first year players.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UCLA ATS.
I am curious what the number will be here. I am guessing Kentucky -7, which would feel pretty sharp to me.
