UofA dominated the boards and didn’t foul, but lost by 16. The difference is UCLA made shots and Arizona didn’t, including open jumpers, free throws, and bunnies. I cant recall the last basketball game where I saw no shots go in and Arizona score 4 points in 10 min.
Ho hum. Kick their ass in McKale next week. ASU is going to get worked on Saturday.
UCLA broke our offense.
If you watched teh Stanford game last night Don MacLean was explaining what he thought UCLA did to ARizona. Basically said Arizona is as good as anybody in transition offense. To get that Arizona plays pressure defense to get you to take quicker shots. UCLA didn't do that, UCLA made Arizona defend a longer shot clock, and then of course hit shots at the end of the clock. So without the fast break points Arizona was always playing against a set defense.
This was obvious in how UCLA didn't even try to get offensive rebounds they just dropped back on defense. Saw a bit of the ASU game no idea if they did the same thing but it's not exactly a new concept, transition teams like to run so try to not let them run.
Guards get exposed in the half court. Against UCLA it will come down to making shots and dominating the boards.
Kerr is disappointing but capable of going on a hot streak. He’s just not a PG. Luckily sounds like Tommy will get one if Proctor/Boswell.
