UCLA has been playing great to start the season. They have some big wins and are among the few unbeatens left.
At the other end of the spectrum is UCSB who has just one win so far.
I am not seeing the Bruin getting their first loss in this matchup.
The Gauchos out of the Big West has just one win but they are expected to compete…once conference play begins.
Gabe Vincent is the top scorer on the team at 17ppg. He has been in double figures in every game this season but I think he is going to have to get close to doubling his average is UCSB is going to stay in touch with UCLA in this one.
His season high is 23.
Jalen Canty has bulk – 276 pounds – but is likely not quick enough to keep up with either of the Bruins top bigs. He did get a double-double in a loss to USC but this game will probably be at a faster pace.
UCSB has senioor leadership in PG Eric Childress. He will have to weather the storm and get his teammates into good sets as they will have to score a lot of points to win.
Ami Lokoju has similar size to Cany but it is going to be tough for him to play at a fast pace and be effective. Though he did go for 12 and 6 vs. the Trojans.
The Gauchos are going to be outclassed in this one. They prefer a slower pace and when they can’t get that it could get pretty ugly pretty early. They are not a great shooting teams.
The Bruins are undefeated and there might not be a better win this season than their win at Kentucky.
The Wildcats get all the pub for their recruiting but the freshman duo of Lonzo Ball and TJ Leaf has been superb. Ball is just fourth on the team in scoring but you get a sense that he is holding back to be the perfect team player they need.
Leaf might already be the best stretch 4 in the college game.
He is averaging 17/9.
As good as those guys are it is Isaac Hamilton who is actually leading the team in scoring. The Bruins are second in the nation in points per game with 6 players in double figures.
UCLA likes to play at a fast pace and they have so much scoring talent that every miss you have feels like a lot more. They give up 75ppg but are still winning by an average margin of 22 points.

Free UCSB Gauchos vs. UCLA Bruins NCAAB Prediction:
The Gauchos are running into a juggernaut on the road this week. The most they can hope for is respectable.
Despite the fact that UCLA should in easily that is an awful lot of chalk to give up. I will probably pass.
