Well rejoice everyone. Just two more regular season games left in which Nikola Ragovic will be dressing up in UCLA home unis. How about that for a positive note to start a game thread. In about half an hour Bruins (12-14, 7-7) will tip off against the Oregon State Beavers (12-14, 6-8) for their final home weekend of the Pac-10 conference season.
As detailed throughout the Bruin our guys are bruised and battered and pretty severely shorthanded against a well coached Oregon State team, which has had some decent victories in recent weeks. Still Bruins at least schematically match up pretty well and if they play with focus and effort for entire 40 minutes, they will have a shot to regain a little momentum heading into last regular season home game at Pauley. The Bruins have won the last 10 meetings and have an over all record of 86-33 (.723) against the Beavers.
The tip off is scheduled for 8:07 PST on FSN and Prime Ticket. Donnie Mac is going to be in the house providing color so that should be fun.
