Bruin Bites: Hoosier Loser's Squad Takes on JustSC Edition

New, comments

It's Saturday in Los Angeles and while the rain has returned to our friends in the northern half of the state, it's a cool, cloudy day in the Southland, as we gear up for our Bruins heading across town to the Costco Center to take on a LOL-worthy JustSC Trogan squad.

The Hoosier Loser's basketball squad has thankfully been on a hiatus all week, gearing up for a cross-town show-down with the laughably pathetic JustSC squad.  Despite Andy Enfield's propensity to run his mouth like he's a big-time coach, his pathetic Southern Cal Trojan squad finds itself at the very bottom of a laughably weak Pac-12 conference, with a whopping one conference win (over the almost as LOL-worthy Berkeley Bears).  So, given the talent disparity between the Bruins and the Second Choice hoopsters, this should be a complete and total blow-out.  You know, kind of like what happened earlier this year, when UCLA smashed Enfield's Trojans 107-73.

But of course, don't count out the Hoosier Loser.  He's bound and determined to under-perform this season, with the Bruins struggling to run away in a pathetically weak conference that only features one good team: the Arizona Wildcats. So, don't be surprised if the ol' nepotism strikes again and we see Bryce (you know, the guy who got a scholarship at one of the nation's blue-blood hoops program, and got recruited by exactly two schools, both coached by his dad) get extended minutes at the expense of guys who actually know how to play basketball.  It'll probably be much closer than it should be since Alford is a garbage coach (but hey, at least he can join the exclusive club of men who performed firsts for Harvard), but if the Bruins should be able to put this one away without any real threat.

With that said, let's take a look at the various bits and pieces of news for this Saturday game-day as we get ready for our Bruins to take on JustSC this evening at the Costco Center across town:

Alright folks, those are your bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse as we gear up for tonight's game against the joke squad from across town.  It'll be a poorly coached affair from both sides, so if you're not feeling like driving over to Southern Cal's campus (you know, where students get murdered and then their families sue for Southern Cal misrepresenting the security situation around their campus), you can always head down to Venice Beach and catch a pick-up game - the level of coaching and quality of play will be about the same.  Plus, it's free!
