UCLA needed a leader in this game to step up and score and no one did. Was extremely unimpressed with juzang and Jules. When they aren’t scoring baskets, they are a defensive liability and last two games showed… they have trouble defending athletic guards. Be interested to see what their numbers were…

Also, why the abysmal 3 pt shooting? Juaqez, juzang, singleton, and Jules combined for 2 three point baskets. Meanwhile tyger who has been shooting well took 0 attempts?

I said in this game that ucla plays more like an nba team with lots of 1:1 … which is fine for developing nba players. But they’re gonna have to pass it around a lot better in conference play or they’ll wind up with a lot more losses then they’re hoping for

Not fun to watch... But out of adversity comes strength. This should (properly) bring the team down a peg and force them to focus. The second half was definitely better, but a 20 point hole was too big to climb out. Bruins now know where they are. Not close to #1. That's ok by me as long as they continue to improve and listen to their coach. Go Bruins!

Nighters, Mighty Bruins. That wasn't worth the two hours.

If it gets us better in March, it’s still worth it.

Sometimes a 15 point loss in November in a top 10 matchup can lead to a 27 point win in March... here's to being on the right side of that this time

Happy Thanksgiving Mighty Bruins - let's all enjoy 62 helpings of our favorite sides and desserts!

On a bright side, I think Watson competed tonight and learned a lot tonight.

Ugh, terrible night. But, only one, early season game....learn, get better, get healthy, and move ion.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Mighty Bruin Family!

A far cry from the playing against Villanova

I feel bad for my friends that went. But admire them for going and supporting our guys.

This game was painful, but necessary. See where that bar is Bruins? Now, can you get there?

Thank goodness this is only a pre-season game. As has been said, let's just learn from it and move on. It is meaningless. Let's win conference and then let the chips fall where they may.

We played well about 6 minutes out of 40

Why does Gonzaga have that kid in still?

Expand full comment

Seems unnecessarily risky at this point.

Expand full comment

62-33!

Expand full comment

Someone on the DP show said that DTR should have gotten a good sportsmanship call for signing the kids hat and an extra 15 yards. Thought that was so true.

Expand full comment

That will feel good for a very long time.

If we could win this fame or the one last Saturday, I’d take putting up 62 on SC all say.

Expand full comment

We are going to need to find ways to score when the outside shots are not dropping. I think it is better defense and transition baskets. We have seen very little of that tonight.

Expand full comment

We lack any inside sciring with Cody out...he had a huge game in April that would be great right now

Expand full comment

This should be good for ucla… put them in their place… long season and they seemed arrogant I. The game yesterday and it showed up in the first half to put them out of the game

Expand full comment

I never got arrogance from any of our players, baskets. Maybe they're too confident, but that's a far cry from arrogance

Expand full comment

I think they played like they thought were hot shit yesterday. I like having fun, but yesterday I thought they played like they were special… like I said, I feel like this is getting exposed, I think it will make them better

Expand full comment

I thought they lacked effort and were lackadaisical. Where in the game did you get the "hot shit" attitude, cuz I missed it?

Expand full comment

Agree. I don't get that attitude from any of them. I really do think they've been under the weather.

Expand full comment

I hadn't noticed that (arrogance) at their home games. But I agree this will make them better

Expand full comment

I sure hope something good comes of this

Expand full comment

Yup. Be grateful to get this lesson when we have a chance to learn and grow from it.

Expand full comment

Exactly…

Expand full comment

So glad I decided not too! (Travel to Vegas)

Man these guys are whiners. Robbin thinks these guys milk every contact.

Expand full comment

We cannot hit a 3

Expand full comment

shooting 17% from outside -_-

Expand full comment

Nice foul on Timme!

Expand full comment

Time to Mute this

Expand full comment

Gotta make those easy ones, Jules (and every other Bruin who's missed the free throws)

Expand full comment

We are still giving up too many easy shots/layups. We have had a few spurts of good play, but need that to be consistent. Let's see if we can close out the game with some intensity.

Expand full comment

At this point just winning the 2nd half point battle to save us from embarrassment would feel great.

Expand full comment

Geez…Gonzaga v Duke on Friday. Who do you root for in that one?? The meteor??

Expand full comment

I'll be watching Tiple D reruns instead

Expand full comment

Those are the ones I call injury games. Just going both teams lose and a few players get hurt.

Expand full comment

Like when Patriots play Seahawks... root for earthquake

Expand full comment

Clark is the only one really competing

Expand full comment

goal tending!

Finally

Expand full comment

Tyger!!

Ball don’t lie, ahole

Expand full comment

What kind of crappy shoes are they wearing? They keep slipping and falling.

Expand full comment

Ball don't lie!!

Expand full comment

Jeeze Louise the hole is still as deep.

Expand full comment

Gonzaga looking like Neymar

Expand full comment

We really gotta fix that inbounds pass under the rim. You’d think that Stanford game would have been the last time we’d ever blow that.

Expand full comment

Agreed

Expand full comment

Bs he went for the ball

Expand full comment

Video will show that

Expand full comment

Oh Jaime....

Expand full comment

Man, even Singleton can't knock one down

Expand full comment

Singleton off as well

Expand full comment

Yes! Drawing those fouls!

Expand full comment

And Clark knocks down both FT

Expand full comment

Aw, C'mon!

Expand full comment

Clark showing his usual hustle

Expand full comment

Jules so off

Expand full comment

OMG Timme totally cleared out on that pass, and of course no call

Expand full comment

This is why I love Mick. If Johnny won’t guard, Johnny won’t play. CSA never had balls big enough to hold anyone accountable.

In the words of Bill Walton, the bench is your friend.

Including himself.

Seriously!! Don't ever dignify his reign of error

Expand full comment

Bolton, Holmgren, and Strawther have 3; their Watson have 4. Let's go, Bruins! Let's foul them out!!

Expand full comment

Wish Clark could improve ft's. He's such a fighter under basket.

Expand full comment

Got my wish

Expand full comment

Better effort. Zags have 8 fouls and we have none. Need to take advantage.

Expand full comment

Yup. I like our intensity the last 5+ min much better.

Expand full comment

Defensive effort had been kuch better . But shooting is still way off

Expand full comment

Finally we're getting offensive rebounds again! We do that and we have a chance!

Expand full comment

Need some baskets.. 3pt shooting is horrendous

Expand full comment

We are rim magnets, tonight!

Expand full comment

Gotta hit FTs
