UCLA Bruins at San Diego State Aztecs Game Thread

Tonight, the UCLA Bruins open the 2020-2021 men’s basketball season with a game against the San Diego State Aztecs at Viejas Arena in San Diego. If the Bruins had played this game last season, they likely would have gotten crushed because UCLA just wasn’t playing the type of basketball at the start of the season that they were at the end of the season.

If NCAA Tournament had been played and UCLA had played the Aztecs in it, the Bruins may still have lost, but they certainly would have battled.

Fast-forward to tonight.

Tonight, the Bruins have a good shot to win because they return last year’s starting five while the Aztecs only return three of last year’s starting five and coach Brian Dutcher is going to have to find a way to replace a lot of the team’s production from last season.

That sounds like a formula for a Bruin win to me.
