Though UCLA might have been looking forward to this game, their style of play was still stuck in the past.
UCLA could not have started this game any worse. As has been the case in past games, a combination of turnovers, a defense with much to be desired and no offense of flow allowed the Bruins to be taken advantage. And then slowly but surely, UCLA worked their way back into the game.
UCLA was making their move. Going into the break, Cal had the lead.
The Bruins then went on a run that was fueled by three-pointers from David Singleton and Kris Wilkes. By the midway point, there had only been one field goal and one free-throw made, both of which were made by the Bruins.
That seemed to get the momentum going as UCLA then went on an run to secure the win in overtime.
UCLA is now at. Still, it is something to build on as the Bruins enter a tough stretch to finish the season. That continues on Saturday at Stanford where the Bruins might not be a favorite to win in that game, but in this conference, stranger things have happened.
