We are here at Henderson, Nevada, not far away from the Las Vegas strip. Looking forward to a good game at noon time. I heard they will let us in around 11 am.

UCLA Fight! Fight! Fight!

I have an out of town appointment this afternoon. Will listen while driving to root our Bruins on. Go Bruins!!

And - the very best to Jaylen - what a fine young man and leader. Hope they take him to the NCAA tournament. His leadership on the bench can be invaluable.

Somehow fitting that Carvana is the pregame sponsor on the Pac-12 network.

Excited for the start of tournament season! Sad I have to jump to a meeting at 1pm, but maybe I can have the game on mute in the background lol

Looks like this crew does know how to call double dribbles.

Tyger + Andrews playing together is a lineup I wanted to see get extended time.

Holy K-rap, They're shooting the lights out!

UCLA's press is taking them out of their half court D, which is our strength.

I'm sure running over DaSilva felt good

38-37 buffalo chips at the half.

Colorado is on fire

Our team is basically either freshman and seniors without Clark. We’re pretty much relying on 5+ freshman the rest of the way.

Expand full comment

They are shooting on fire and there hasn’t been a lot of good defense so far. The refs got involved to flex their whistles and took the two freshmen out of the ucla lineup. If ucla can play some defense they could go on a run… they’re going to have to play a tough game though as CU isn’t going to back down

Gotta pick up the D.

Expand full comment

This is the first barometer of what ucla can do without Clark this season. While their offense is doing ok, they need a strong second half to prove to all the experts that they are still a strong defensive team. If they can’t do that against a CU team missing two key players, it won’t be good for their chances in the big tourney

Looking sloppy early on.

Tyger with the 3!

3 Tygrrr!

Jaquez a bit too casual with the ball this half.

Expand full comment

And the refs continue to love calling Bona's number

Expand full comment

Amari's got 18 and 3 fouls. Who else wants to play?

Expand full comment

Haven’t seen McClendon show any offensive game all season

Expand full comment

Bona gotta stop switching his man! He’s hanging his guards out to dry on a center.

Also, stop the press! It’s not lead to any steals. UCLA isn’t built to run a press without Clark… even with Clark they’ve been awful at the press.

Finally, Mclendon is awful. He shouldn’t be playing ahead of Andrews or even canka at this point. He shoots less than 20%, sucks at defense, and is always in the wrong spot

Great block by Bona!

Bailey puts us up 3.

C'mon, Amari, get up!

Trippleton and we're up 6!

Not sure I love Bona's jumper. Missing it a lot when wide open.
