Tonight’s game will be a good test for the UCLA Bruins. The Marquette Golden Eagles are a very good defensive basketball team.
The big question tonight is: Will the Bruins who finished last season show up or will we see the team which played San Diego State a few weeks ago to start the season?
Tonight’s game has the makings of a low scoring defensive slugfest because, as we know, UCLA head coach Mick Cronin emphasizes defense as does Marquette head man Steve Wojciechowski. It may very be a case of the first team to either 60 or 70 wins tonight.
Of course, I have to think that the Bruins will win tonight, but I do think it’s going to be a close, hard-fought game.

UCLA held Marquette to only 6 points (2 of those on free throws) after the under-8 timeout. Really great defense at the end.
for both the football team and Women's BB
Great defense and toughness tonight... I sure do miss alford though, love that guy
Bring on SC...
And finally...Beat $c!!!
Sleep well Bruins.
Pulled a game out that looked like we should lose. Depth helps.
Great games from JJJ and Bernard tonight. Tyger didn't score a lot but had a boatload of assists.
It's been a long time since we could win a game with 3 starters like Smith, Juzang, & Riley having really off nights. It really speaks to the depth and tenacity to do the little things right.
69-60, we win
Wow. How did that come out?
That was all arm.
How does Bill think that's not a foul?
I say get the ball to triple J
Huge block Hill
Thank you Juzang
Big block by Smith
Juzang ice cold tonight.
Hitting FTs tonight.
we needed that Juzang
That’s more like it!
If we want to beat Kentucky, Smith will need to get his first points much earlier than 5:55 in the 2nd half.
Hope that gets him going. We'll need him down the stretch.
Smith with 1st point
Get the ball to Jaquez and Bernard and get out of the way.
I feel like we're getting outshot and out rebounded by a lot, yet somehow we're tied.
Juaqez going to get tired playing this many minutes against a tough team
We need a run.
Triple J carrying us
Jaquez is our Mr Relliable
Riley 3 fouls 1 point ugh
Refs have been awful so far
Bruins playing soft.
Bruins p on ayong soft.
Singleton go for a layup jeebuz
We're getting decent looks but they're not falling.
UCLA also shooting 1-10 last 10 shots I think
Turned on the second half... refs not calling it even at all so far
Man up Smith/Hill/Riley!!!!
at least we have forced 15 TO's
being terribly outrebounded
Its 4 on 5 Smith is a no show this game
Bernard on fire. Smith on ice.
3 Bruins watching the ball allowing the one Marquette player to get the offensive rebound.
Juzang gone cold.
How can we be this off?
