In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Michigan State at UCLA.
Michigan State is ahead one of its biggest tests of the year. The Spartans will play 6 games in the next 17 days, two road trips to New York against reputable programs, one at Louisville, Rutgers, Florida and then a home game against Iowa. Michigan State lost its big man from last year and the freshmen are still not proven. Rotation will be needed and this might as well start on Thanksgiving.
The Bruins are ranked 17th in the country and they are still undefeated. Even though they still haven’t lost a game, they are the underdogs in this one. They weren’t impressive in any of those 4 wins but the main guys from last year returned and UCLA will look to build on their good performances. Moses Brown is a real threat in the box, averaging 17 points and 12 rebounds per game.
UCLA is very talented and it is just a matter of time for this team to start producing. I expect this to be a narrow game between two evenly matched sides. The Bruins have the abilities to cause an upset but even if they lose by less than 6, it will still be sufficient.
