 Bruins Claw to victory — #2 UCLA improves to a perfect 10-0 — by enduring red-hot Michigan jacking up 16 three’s and making 12 in a first half barrage — to save the day with a hard-fought but convincing 102-84 victory, as superhuman Lonzo Ball and his fellow hero underclassmen lead the way

Even without starting Center Thomas Welsh, the #2 Bruins are formidable, on a National level.  Welsh has a bruised knee and sat this game out, but Michigan could not take advantage, as UCLA triumphs, 102-84, over a team that usually allows about half of that!  Welsh’s absence was mitigated by Gyorgy Goloman, who started in his place, and even moreso by Freshman big man Ike Anigbogu, who was a monster in the Defensive key with 4 official blocks, and even more “shot-alters.”  He also got a huge dunk while contributing 6 on the offensive end.  Completing the the front court success was another Freshman T.J. Leaf, who was super-effective throughout the game, scoring 21 with 8 Boards.

So the UCLA front court was awesome, but, as usual, the Bruins’ BACK COURT dominated yet another game.  Lonzo Ball (19 pts) hit 4 3’s in the first half and led the team to 50 points in the half… but that was not enough to have the lead at the break.  Michigan was so hot from outside that they scored 50 also, by going 12-for-16 from the arc.  They actually led by 7 before the Bruins went on a late run to tie it.  UCLA continued their run after the break to go up by 10.  Michigan hung tough, staying in striking distance until under the 5-minute mark, when UCLA finally pulled away, thanks to the Wolverines making only 2 3’s after the break.  Aaron Holiday (17 pts) came off the bench to hit 5 3’s of his own, Isaac Hamilton (14 pts) added a ton of Offense, and Bryce Alford (18 pts) got hot late and led the charge that put the game away.

Another great TEAM win for the Bruins, so here are 59 more pics of another great Bruin team…
