Turkey Day Dunk Treat?

Watching UCLA on ESPN3 on Thanksgiving against a hapless Nevada team makes me think of this. I guess Chrissorr is the best/worst fan as he will be watching on his iPhone. At least the people at the game are in Las Vegas to watch the 2013 Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational.

A couple more notes on scheduling. UCLA plays arguably its fifth turkey in a row (every game but the first against Drexel). Further, UCLA's scheduling is so screwed up they can't even find a proper tournament as the Continental Tire is an invitational not tournament. This is because UCLA cannot play against Missouri who is playing in the other game at the invitational because they play Missouri in the regular season.

The Bruinsnation preview is here. The official notes are here. I guess the good news is no Ernie Kent, Kanoa Leahey (play-by-play) and Bruce Pearl will be calling the game. WATCH the action on ESPN3 here.

What to watch is summed up in two words: Wannah Bail. Is Bail the rebounding and defensive force UCLA needs? I think there is no way to answer that question this afternoon but today we get our first look.

Go Bruins!
