Center Court: UCLA Basketball (@ Oregon State) Open Thread

Loading Scores

Here we go. For the first time in a while Ben Howland's Bruins (9-11, 4-4) are taking on a team which has the same pathetic overall record and below them in conference standings. That's right Oregon State (9-11, 3-5) fresh off a big win (for them) against Southern Cal is looking to end a nasty streak against the Bruins. The Bruins have won the last nine games by an average of 25.2 points per game (690-463), including the last four in Corvallis by an average of 17.5 points per game (288-218). Last year, the Bruins won their Pac-10 opener at OSU 69-46.

So will the Bruins rebound after their dispiriting but not so surprising loss against one of the worst teams in probably the worst major D-1 conference in America? No one knows. Expect the Beavers come out all fired up and ready to go. It will be interesting to see if the Bruins can show any kind of fight and hustle after they got outwilled by the Ducks (especially around the rim) on Thursday night. The game will be shown in Prime Ticket. The two guys who will call the action are Drew Bontadelli (play-by-play) and Mike Wozniak (analyst). I have no clue who they are.

Anyway, the tip off is scheduled for 4:35 pm PST. You can read up on all of our musings leading up to this game here. If you want to follow the game online you can do so via our official site. As always, we will be here in the game threads with our rapid fire takes and commentary. So let's get this show started. Fire away.

GO BRUINS.
