The second round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament ends with UCLA playing Cincinnati in a game at Sacramento's Golden 1 Center.

Tonight's game looks to be a close one. I saw one report, I'm not sure where, that said the advanced stats are predicting a one-point UCLA win.

Now, I'm not sure that this game will be that close, but I do think that UCLA needs to play a complete game tonight. They cannot afford to play a sloppy game like they seem to be playing lately.

Cincinnati is a solid team that focuses on defense. While the Bruins have been able to beat each team they've played which has a "good defense" they faced, it's been a question we've asked each time and each time the Bruins have risen to the challenge.

Can UCLA keep their offense moving and beat another defensive-minded team?
