Photos from UCLA vs. WSU

Hey, guess what? This one is on time! I'm really glad I didn't decide to call in sick for this game, even though I have absolutely no voice now. Overall, it was a great game to be at; the excitement/noise level in Pauley tonight was the best I've seen this year. Except for the last few minutes of the first half when lethargy and poor officiating conspired to give a 15-0 run for WSU and foul trouble for Reeves Nelson and Josh Smith, it was a game of positives for us:

Even when we had to bench our inside presence in RN and JS, we found ways to score (including a spate of three-pointers from Lazeric Jones, Tyler Honeycutt, and Malcolm Lee). Much like the Wooden Classic game, CBH took a chance in playing RN and JS with four fouls apiece down the stretch (alternating JS when we were on offense, then subbing Brendan Lane when he could when we were on D, etc.), but their presence almost certainly sealed the W for us. But enough of my rambling, onto the pictures!

Again I fought with the arena strobes; they won this time, but I like the way this one turned out after a little post.

TH really came alive in the second half. I don't know if he was shaking off the rust from sitting out a game, or whatever the deal was, but he was on fire in the second half.

Zeke played some nice D this game-- he and ML came up with some pretty steals tonight.

It occurred to me as I was looking through these pictures that I didn't take a single portrait-orientation picture tonight, despite having several (like this one) that would have benefited from it. I blame being sick and off my game. I remember thinking this was a charge (I think it was called a block, and-1), but since I don't have Zeke's feet in the frame, now I can't tell. Whatever-- having photographic evidence of poor officiating is not as cool as it originally seems; you know for sure that they blew the call, but there's still nothing you can do about it. That's all for tonight, see you next year! (I might actually get a post up from the UW game before midnight, but let's keep the expectations low for now :P)
