The Utes played well enough to potentially sweep the Arizona squads at home but heading to LA this weekend is going to be a tough trip.
The Bruins are at the top of the PAC 12 at 3-1 and have to like the fact that they should be favoured in their next six games. A chance to build a gap.
When they can keep the pace where they want it the Utes can compete but they had a hard time last weekend. They want to score 70 and win.
This is not a great offensive group. David Collette is a fundamentally sound player but he is hardly next level material. Nobody on this team is as far as I can tell.
Not to be underrated is that they do make their free throws – 78% – 7th in the nation. That can matter if they have the lead coming down the stretch.
This will be a tough spot. UCLA’s home court is not terrifying but there is a big imbalance here in terms of talent and size.
What’s with the SoCal teams losing at Stanford last week. It was a hiccup for the Bruins but they bounced back to beat Cal.
This is a talented team that plays at a fast pace. Still they never appear to be in a rush because they know they can score against set defenses as well.
Aaron Holiday is having a great season and is going to be all PAC 12. He has a great instinct for getting his without it disrupting the flow of the offense.
Thomas Welsh doesn’t look like a star but he averages 13 and 11 and is one of the few big men in college hoops who can really shoot it, including from the line.
