Game Thread, Preview and How to Watch: UCLA Bruins at Utah Utes

Tonight’s game will likely be tougher than it looks on paper because the Utes have lost only one game at home all season.

Tonight, the UCLA Bruins head to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Utes in the Hunstman Center. Tip-off is at 7:30 pm PT.

The Bruins remain one of the hottest team in college basketball. UCLA is on a three-game winning streak and the team has won four of their last five and seven of the last nine.

But tonight’s game is in Salt Lake City and the Utes enter tonight’s game with only one loss at home all season. That loss came against Oregon, who was ranked fourth at the time. So, beating Utah tonight won’t be nearly as easy as it was a few weeks ago at Pauley.

Make no mistake. Tonight’s game is the more winnable of this week’s games. It’s just that the Bruins are going to have to keeping working hard to earn it. As long as Coach Cronin keeps his guys fresh and Chris Smith and Jalen Hill keep playing the way they’ve been playing, UCLA should get the win.
