David Jenkins Jr. had 14 points off the bench to lead the team while Rollie Worster piled up 13 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists on 5/8 shooting from the floor.

#9 UCLA Bruins vs Utah Utes. The NCAAB pick for this contest is the UCLA Bruins. The Utes continue to struggle on the court and while the Bruins has had their fair share of struggles as well, having fallen off from its preseason #2 ranking, they are still a very good team in comparison and have proven they can snatch wins away from home.

 

Moreover, UCLA’s offense is tough to counter with Utah’s current state. Prediction: The UCLA Bruins will win this match and cover 82-60.
