Every once in a while, a game sneaks up on you. I fully expected today’s UCLA basketball game to be played tonight in primetime. Instead, it’s on ABC at 11 am PT. WTH?
Look for Tommy Lloyd to start Kerr Kriisa and Courtney Ramey at guard. Kriisa is the junior from Estonia who is averaging 11.2 ppg and 5.9 assists per game while Ramey averages 9.0 ppg and is shooting 40% from behind the arc.
Starting forward Azuolas Tubelis leads the Wildcats with an average of 20.4 ppg and also grabbing 9.0 rpg. Cedric Henderson will start at the other forward and is averaging 7.0 ppg. Oumar Ballo will start at center and he is averaging 16.3 ppg.
Today’s game will be on ABC with Dan Shulman and Jay Bilas calling the game. If you prefer, you can listen to Josh Lewin and Tracy Murray. Just be sure to right-click on it so that you can open up another tab and have it going while you chat in the comments below. Listen to today’s game online.

Bad call on Bona. Bad foul on Singleton.
Beautiful rebound by Jaylen for the put-back!
So do we have Arizona alums calling the game today or are these guys just unprofessional?
Jaylen has 7 of our points and has tied zona.
Good D from Bona and Jaylen steals.
There were what 11 traveling calls on Thursday night, more than ever called in a current age game according to the BRO podcast. Looks like the SPTRs are going for that or more today. Wow
Great strip by Singleton
I saw that elbow!
I don't get how that is a flop, when there was obvious contact between players
Are these the same officials? Wow the traveling and now the flop call. De ja vu
What a freaking garbage call
I gotta go do my Saturday shopping after clearing the snow off of my van. Go Bruins!
At last a charge against zona!
It's unanimous. Everyone is mad at the officials.
If SPTRs were consistent, that should have been a technical flop on Arizona. Since they are SPTRs, they are never consistent in their call.
Suck, zona for three and the lead!
They should take the whistles away. Neither team is being overly physical or handsy. Just let them play the last 3 minutes of the half without any input from the refs and their arbitrary interference.
Lid on the basket for the Bruins
Is Bilas questioning that foul?? Ballo hit Clark. Ballo was in the air and not established. And Ballo was in the restricted area. That's 3 reasons it's a foul on Ballo. Geez, Bilas. Just put on a fucking red jersey for this broadcast.
Tommy Lloyd just said officials are not calling that many fouls on us Bruins. What game are you watching, coach??
Tyger with the 3!
Jaquez gets clobbered under the basket and...no call
Tough when you rely on outside shooting and can’t make any shots.
Where's the technical flop?
As soon as the Bruins get some momentum the refs call a foul and stop the game
This shooting performance feels like CU. I think we're at a god awful 26% from the field right now.
Not making shots we usually make.
Offense really out of sync. Another TO due to miscommunication.
33 goddamn points in 29 minutes against a team not exactly known for its defense.
Doesn’t help that one on end, good defense is a foul, and on the other, a foul is just good defense.
How many balls can go in and out of the basket???
Just giving points away.
Worst fans in college basketball.
Blow the put back dunk and a three point play becomes a one point play.
No foul for driving that knee into Tiger's chest on his layup, huh?
Jump ball oh no it's a foul just the worst
Dunk by Bona = momentum = foul called on Campbell
Kriisa is such a little bitch.
Cronin needs to figure out something on offense. We can't rely so much on outside shots falling. Need more feeds into the post and cutters to get shots in the paint or open up the perimeter better.
Tygr is missing shots he normally makes.
Their foul turns into their three. Thanks SPTR
That ball never got over the rim! It hit the bottom of the rim.
