Baby bruins balling
Awesome game tonight vs Arizona state who at 20-8 are fighting for their bubble life. Ucla pulled it out in overtime led by the 3 freshman Jordan Adams, Kyle Anderson and shabazz Muhammad to improve to 21-7.
Bazz: 21pts... 8/14fg...3/4 3pt... 6reb
Kyle Anderson: 21pts...15reb...4stls...3ast
Jordan Adams: 22pts...7/14fg's...6reb
And give it up for the sun devils as well. Freshman pg jahii Carson put up 22pts, 7assists, 5rebs, and 3steals. It's probably between jahii and Allen crabbe for PAC 12 player of the year. He might not be the best prospect, but he is arguably the best freshman in the conference.
As for the bruins, one of their unsung strengths is the play of senior pg Larry drew. He leads America in assist to turnover ratio and he had another 13 assists tonight. He's also the teams second best defender behind only backup Norman Powell. Problem with the team is they are so soft down low. Travis wear has had some injuries and missed tonight, but even with him, this team is soft down low.
I love it, UCLA has allot of talent to make the sweet 16, but who knows. Larry Drew is close to breaking the single season assist record too. Hes a good PG. He might play for the hawks next year hahaha
UCLA has top 5 overal team talent, they just needed time to gel and work on chemistry. I don't think they'll go too far in the tourney though because of their youth but hopefully everybody comes back next yr (minus Bazz of course).
Its cray how Jordan Adams was the least heralded; but that boy is a baller! I'd take him in the first round in the 2014 draft.
Hey Y2G we know this, but his dad is the coach of the Hawks. it was a thought
