Game Preview


On Thursday, the UCLA Bruins will take on a Pac-12 game from the Huntsman Center in Salt Lake City against the Utah Utes.


The Pac-12 Conference calendar frequently has matches in pairs; for instance, a team playing in Oregon might play at Oregon State in the following game. After suffering 2 defeats at the hands of the Sun Devils and Wildcats, Utah returned home from their recent trip to Arizona. They were defeated by 12 points by Arizona State, and then by even more points by Arizona, dropping their conference record to 2-2 overall. Guard Gabe Madsen paced Utah with 18 points during their latest defeat. Senior center Branden Carlson, who stands 7’0 and weighs 220-pounds, tops Utah in scoring with 17.6 points per match. He also leads the team in rebounds with 6.4 per contest and has connected on 23 three-pointers this season. Although Carlson struggled versus Arizona’s formidable frontcourt, scoring just 7 points on 3 of 10 shots, he did just score 34 points versus Washington.



This season, the once-dominant UCLA Bruins have significantly underperformed. They are second to worst in the Pac-12 in terms of total wins, having won just 6 games, only 5 more than California. And to make things worse, Cal recently won on the Bruins’ home court. UCLA has potential, but they must find a way to swiftly assemble it. They played the sides in Oregon to a split on their travels, but unexpectedly dropped their home stand versus Stanford and Cal. Guard Sebastian Mack paced UCLA with 20 points during the defeat against Cal. Sebastian Mack, a 6’3 freshman guard, leads UCLA in scoring with 14.3 points per game. During their recent homestand, Mack scored 20 points versus Cal and 14 over Stanford. Mack tops the team in free throw attempts (91), attacks the hoop more often than he attempts threes, and has hit just 11 threes this season.
