The Bruins were in a dogfight but ultimately won handily.
Kudos to Murray and Slater. Those guys were unconscious through the first 30+ minutes and single (double?) handedly made this a tight game for a long way. Ultimately, the Bruins had the depth and talent to pull away but LB State is going to be a problem for a lot of teams.
I'd give a game ball to Jaylen Clark. Juzang will always be the offense and hit a pair of 3s early, but was then 1 of 7 from distance the rest of the way and that bogged down the flow at times. In fact, U.C.L.A.'s overall reliance on long 3s the first half got a bit frustrating. Clark doesn't force himself upon the offense but just digs in on D, hustles for rebounds, and scraps together efficient points every game. You cannot underestimate the value of a talented player with a blue collar mindset like that.
"the usual bottles of Ambien..." lol, Brilliant.
What's the word on Riley? Last night someone said he was seen limping around Pauley.
Oh wow, you guys finally did start this blog!
I'm here from BN because apparently Vox doesn't give enough of a shit to hire writers to cover the all time winningest program in NCAA program history and the current No. 2 basketball program in the nation.
Looking forward to the great content from you guys, it's been a minute!
