UCLA. . .Hooped

The College Hoops season is underway, but somebody forgot to tell the UCLA Bruins that it’s not preseason anymore.

As exciting as it was to open the season at 9pm PST as the kickoff game for ESPN’s 24 Hours of Madness. . .well that’s about how dull & boring the Bruin offense looked. Missing their first seven shots (and going scoreless for more than three minutes), the Bruins looked competitively underwhelmed for the contest, losing in double-overtime versus the Big West contending Titans of Fullerton. The shooting of Dragovic (2 for 14) and Lee (7 of 23) was horrendous, and the only bright spot, really, was Nelson Reeves scoring 11 off the bench. Really ugly game, and though there are widespread injuries throughout the roster, this season does not beckon well for Howland and his overrated recruiting classes.

Here’s the Bruin box from last night. Prit-tee sorry, guys. Just like the plans for the Pauley renovation, but that’s a whole other story.
