After last night's game against Portland, UCLA is now averaging 104.4 points per game this season. It's the first time that UCLA has averaged that many points per game over five games since December 1990 when they averaged 114.2 ppg.

As was mentioned frequently in last night's telecast, UCLA has scored at least 40 points in every half so far this season.

UCLA has six players who are averaging double figures in points so far as well. TJ Leaf leads the team with an average of 19 ppg while Bryce Alford is second with 17.6 and Isaac Hamilton is third with 17. Lonzo Ball (16.6), Aaron Holiday (14.4) and Thomas Welsh (11.2) are the other Bruins averaging double figures in points per game.

As a team, UCLA has relied on the three-pointer to help them succeed. The team, as a whole, is shooting .462 from behind the arc with Bryce Alford (.531) and Aaron Holiday leading the way.
