Why UCLA Will Win
Colorado has won seven of its last nine games. One of those losses was to UCLA.
The Bruins got out to a great start, were solid from the field, and dominated the glass, going +10 in rebounding margin.
Colorado is normally the star on the boards, but if UCLA can at least stay within range – it’s the best offensive rebounding team in the Pac-12 – it’ll hang around.
Why Colorado Will Win
UCLA can’t stop anyone from hitting from three. Colorado is the second-best team in the Pac-12 from beyond the arc, and it needs to get going right away.
It was able to get back in the game the first time around from the outside, but it still wasn’t quite as good as it normally is. At home, the threes will be a bit stronger.
The Buffs won’t get hit with the fouls UCLA will – they’ll be at least +5 on the free throw line.
What’s Going To Happen
Colorado hasn’t lost a home since early January, but it’ll get tested by a solid Bruin team that’s getting hot at the right time.
It’ll be this simple, though. The Buffs will hit their threes, and UCLA won’t.
