It wasn't pretty for some who were watching - but looked beautiful to me. I was watching the game with a buddy of mine who is huge Big East hoops honk and a Pitt fan. 10 minutes into the game he blurted out - "Man this is unbelievable. Your boys are more lethal than those recent national champions from the Big East and you'll are just getting started." lol Yeah we sure are. Again the game was ugly but I had no problem with enjoying few beers of a nice, comfortable road win over a well coached opponent while getting to watch a ferocious, smothering defense. Oh by the way Bruins may have set a record last night (emphasis mine):
Washington State (10-10, 3-8) scored only 12 points in the first half. Because the Bruins do not keep such records, it is unknown if that is an all-time low for a UCLA opponent. What is known is that the 30 points are the fewest UCLA has given up since beating Oregon, 34-25, in the 1966-67 season.
"It reminds me of the Michigan State teams I used to play against in the Big Ten, when they had their national champion. Just no let up, and just play with the same level of intensity from start to finish."
