Just a reminder: Less than a year ago, someone flew a plane over Westwood with a "Fire Steve Alford" sign trailing behind it. Talk about your all time backfires.

UCLA pulled down 37 percent of its misses at Arizona. If the Bruins do that the rest of the way, any fretting about this defense may be missing the point.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

I keep saying and thinking that UCLA has to defend to be a true contender. Bruins keep proving me wrong. So many weapons.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Kobi Simmons has been generally out of sync since going for 20 in the first UCLA meeting. 7.4 PPG in nine games since, one point in 10 mins tonight.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Arizona has two high, high-level offensive players in Lauri Markkanen and Allonzo Trier, plus several other complementary options -- and depth for a variety of matchups and styles. They're tough, they defend, they're well-coached. High ceiling in the NCAA Tournament.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Arizona's Allonzo Trier continuing the tear he's been on after 21 points against Washington and 25 against USC. Combined with his 16 first half points in 6-7 FG bs UCLA, Trier is shooting 67.8% from the field in his last three games including 9 of 13 from 3-point range

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

UCLA's on-pace for its worst shooting of the Pac-12 season. Bruins hit 59 percent of their 2s (as per their incredible normal) but just 24 percent of their 3s.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

UCLA led for 14 minutes of first half but the entire time it felt like the Bruins should have had a bigger cushion. Arizona closes out the half on 7-0 run for four point lead. Wildcats led the first meeting by 11 at half.

Eamonn Brennan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bruins are playing solid zone on one end and doing their usual things on the other, Lonzo Ball is locked in, Allonzo Trier and Lauri Markannen are playing at a high level -- UCLA-Arizona is starting to look like it might be epic.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Really surprised UCLA doesn't go zone for more prolonged stretches in the game. The Bruins have enough length at every position to really bother teams -- and frankly at times they just look disinterested in staying engaged in playing man


Is history on underdog's side at Arizona?

In the previous six matchups of top-five foes in the Pac-12, the underdog has won five. No. 4 Arizona beat No. 5 UCLA by 11 points in their previous meeting at Pauley Pavilion in late January. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

No. 4 Arizona is about to host No. 5 UCLA on ESPN. The ViewFromVegas is the Wildcats are 2.5-point home favorites. Later, also on ESPN, No. 1 Gonzaga goes for an undefeated regular season against BYU. The Bulldogs are 20.5-point home favorites and are also an NCAA-best 20-5-1 ATS.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Uncommitted five-star wing Brian Bowen tells ESPN he's at Arizona for an unofficial visit this weekend. Wildcats are one of his finalists.
