Let’s be real. Tonight’s game should be over by halftime.
The Bruins are facing a team that was near the bottom of the West Coast Conference last season. With the talent this UCLA team has they should probably win by about 30 points tonight. Anything less should probably count in the loss column.
The Toreros just don’t have the firepower to win tonight.
On top of all that, the start of their season was delayed 14 days due to COVID-19. That means they couldn’t play and they couldn’t practice. Frankly, the only ways UCLA doesn’t lead buzzer to buzzer are if San Diego scores first, they manage to tie the game early and/or a three-pointer puts them ahead temporarily. This game should firmly be in control by the first time out.

BILL WALTON ON THE CALL BAY BAY
Apparently we're having a hard time getting up for this game
Not a good start.
Ok, just got the TV back. Had to finish some girls hockey first. Go Bruins!
first 3 for Juzang
We're favored by 19.5
Playing fine. Can’t make a shot!
We seem to be committed to getting inside.
Take them to the hoop. Get the fouls. Attrition win
We gotta start pulling away soon.
Shots not falling so UCLA is under the basket and getting to the line. Good strategy.
I like what I’ve seen from Juzang so far.
Kyman feeling it
A little sloppy but love the hustle
Hill off the mark
2 quick fouls on Jaquez
2 quick fouls on Clark
Halftime UCLA 33 USD 23
Hitting the hay
Bruins cold to start the half
Bill Walton just told us he learned about mating on sorority row?
Looks like we’re getting in gear now.
On to Marquette right?
20 pt lead with 3:30 left. Not always pretty but a good workmanlike effort. Time to empty the bench.
scroo you, Walton.
Juzang looks like he can play.
Final U.C.L.A. 83 - USD 56
50 points second half! Marquette on Friday.
