Before we move on to tonight’s game, let’s take a minute to appreciate last year’s beatdown of the Bruins. After watching Kentucky decimate Kansas, we knew the Cats were good, but I don’t think any of us anticipated they would storm out to a 24-0 lead in the first eight minutes or hold UCLA to only seven points at halftime, the fewest number of points the Bruins have ever scored in a half.
UK eventually won 83-44 in a shocking and spectacular display of basketball that helped fans fully realize how special the group could be.
“If they continue to play at that level defensively, I’m a firm believer they’re got a chance to run this thing out,” UCLA head coach Steve Alford said. “They’re that good. They’re that talented.”
Okay, enough words, I need highlights.
