Stupid second foul by Jules-- totally unnecessary reach-in

i can see how ACU turns teams over. As soon as you pick up your dribble they're all over you and they lock down with ball denial.

Campbell makes his first basket which is promising

Well Cronin says he'd be happy if UCLA doesnt have 4 turnovers by the first media timeout. Looks good so far.

A bit whistle happy thus far.

UCLA starts out getting all of the Ticky tack fouls against them... let em play refs

OMG Tyger you gotta make those!!

ACU's hedges remind me of the old Howland team defenses

Riley looks motivated.

Kyman nice shot and then grabbing boards on other end is great!!

Expand full comment

Riley has missed both his free throws so far

Expand full comment

Love Riley dribble driving to the hole for the foul!

Tyger follows up a layup attempt that didn’t even hit the rim with a super tough 2-pt jump shot... gotta at least hit the rim on a wide open layup attempt

0-4 from ft ... gotta clean that up

Expand full comment

Riley 0 for 4 from the line

Expand full comment

Kyman for 3!!

Kyman again!!

Love the early minutes for Clark.

After some initial jitters UCLA is wheeling and dealing

Expand full comment

Wow! Who will get gassed first?

Expand full comment

Swarming defense!

Expand full comment

Clark is a fiend on the boards!

Goal tending on the basket.

Abilene really pushing it up the court now

Expand full comment

They couldn't miss forever.

Clark hustling and throwing himself on the ground for the ball-- and they call it a foul??

Expand full comment

Juzang and Bernard both cold today. Although I'm not loving Jules's shot selection

Expand full comment

Missing some open looks.

Expand full comment

Kyman's been hitting, and Singleton only has one attempt; feel good about our offense

Expand full comment

Two refs right there, and the one 60 feet away makes the call. Are these Pac 12 refs?

Expand full comment

We need a basket; we've been too cold

Expand full comment

Nice board, Jules!

Expand full comment

Just brutal officiating again.

Expand full comment

Johnny for 3!!

Expand full comment

come on...lets get a friggin basket

Expand full comment

They're trying to take it inside since Riley sat, but they're not ready for our forwards!

Expand full comment

You'd think we'd be used to bullshit officiating by now, but....

31-21 at the half, go Bruins!

Congrats AC on your move to the WAC.

I’ve been a big defender of Cronin but that was not the best half of coaching I’ve ever seen him display. In a game where the Bruins clearly have a dominant advantage with the physicality and size and skills of their players, he got away from interior basketball and relied exclusively on 20-25 foot jump shots. They were unstoppable with kicks on the low post to Riley and dribble drive by using, Jaquez and others. Yet from the 12 minute mark he arrayed five players behind the three-point line. That’s a recipe for disaster. If you come out shooting 20% in the second half and can’t get offensive rebounds, any lead gets chipped away very quickly. i’m incredibly surprised he didn’t recognize the mismatches and try to establish an inside out game. Hoping they make some halftime adjustments and take advantage of their physicality and better athletes.

Interesting half. ACU is really a smaller less talented version of UCLA. They play hard, scrap for every loose ball. I respect how hard they play. There was a couple of sequences where the ball was like a pinball bouncing off the players, no one giving up on the play.

UCLA missed some free throws and easy layups or this would be a 15-16 point lead or more. Cronin hopefully makes some adjustments and they can pull away from ACU.
