UCLA Bruins at Arizona State Sun Devils Game Thread

Last week, when the Bruins were coming off a two-week break, UCLA looked a little rusty. So, it should stand to reason that Arizona State should look rusty tonight after a three-week layoff. But, something makes me think that Bobby Hurley will have the Sun Devils ready to play tonight even though his team dealt with a COVID-19 outbreak last weekend.

In the words of ESPN’s Chris Berman, it’s why they play the games.

Speaking of ESPN, that’s where tonight’s game will be broadcast. It’s also the first UCLA game of the season featuring the duo of Dave Pasch and Bill Walton. Hopefully, these guys will be in midseason form with Pasch trying hard to actually call the basketball game and Bill going off on 436 tangents in the first half alone!

Ultimately, I think the Bruins will take tonight’s game relatively easily, though I expect ASU to make a late run which, ultimately, will fall short.
