UCLA needs this win for their RPI and hopes to Dance in March. BYU is one of the hottest teams with the player of the week in Jimmer Fredette. As if that is not enough, the Bruins are playing in their first Wooden Classic without Coach watching from the bleachers.
How will UCLA deal with the most important December game in years for the Bruins? Will Malcolm Lee and UCLA be able to contain Jimmer Fredette? Will UCLA play better against a zone tonight then they have so far in the season? The tipoff is scheduled for 2:07 pm PST on Prime Ticket but may start closer to 2:30 or later as this is the second game of a doubleheader at the Honda Center. The official preview is here but for more on BYU checkout their website here.
