College Basketball UCLA Bruins vs Kentucky Wildcats Start Time, Betting Odds

05 April, 2017, 01:41 | Author: Nora May

The Shockers are not the Bruins, but a repeat of that type of defensive effort should be enough to get Kentucky past UCLA and into the Elite Eight for the sixth time in eight years in front of what will be a very pro-Kentucky crowd.

When UCLA came to Lexington on December 3, all eyes were on the point-guard battle between star freshmen Lonzo Ball and De'Aaron Fox.

He outplayed UCLA freshman Lonzo Ball, who finished with 10 points on 4 of 10 shooting.

Ball, the potential No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game for the 31-5 Bruins. No. 2-seed Kentucky won its 14th straight game and will face No. 1 seed North Carolina in the Elite Eight on Sunday at FedExForum.

The Wildcats ground the prolific Bruins' top-ranked offensive attack into dust, holding them to 15 points below their season average while having their way on the other end. Six Bruins scored in double figures, and Leaf had 17 points and 13 rebounds. The Wildcats did all the little things required to win big games, slowing the tempo at times and staying active with their perimeter defense. What they did to Cincinnati in the second round of the NCAA tournament might have been their magnum opus.

Lonzo Ball certainly didn't envision his collegiate basketball career would end in the Sweet 16, but after UCLA lost to Kentucky 86-75, Ball confirmed he would be entering his name in the 2017 NBA Draft before even taking his jersey off.

On Dec. 3 UCLA dropped its first hint when it went to Kentucky and won, 97-92.

During the run, UCLA went scoreless for almost three minutes because of UK's much-improved defense as of late. Roy (Williams) has done a great job with his team and I'm looking forward to the game just because I like my team, and we've got a good group of kids and I'm like jacked up.

The Wildcats took the lead for good late in the first half on a 3-pointer by Isaiah Briscoe, carrying a 36-33 edge to the break on the strength of 15 points from Fox. "'OK, good. Then you know we're playing through De'Aaron Fox".

The UCLA Basketball team ended their 31-5 season on Friday against the Kentucky Wildcats in the Sweet 16 which means that it is already time to move on to next year... but what will next year look like?

"I scored like the first eight points of the game, and after that I was like you know it's going to be a good night for me", Fox said.

North Carolina used early accurate shooting to build a 16-point lead as the Tar Heels connected on 13 of their first 18 shots, including missing only one of seven from outside the arc.

"That's what this is, and people are going to watch this game, not because I'm coaching and not because I came back to Memphis and not because Steve is coaching". "Every game we play is a war". The Wildcats will play North Carolina in the Elite Eight on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ball finished with just 10 points and three rebounds. Instead, the Florida point guard stopped short right at the 3-point line and let fly with a shot that will go down in Gators' history. Fox, who finished with 39 points on 13-of-20 shooting, more than proved his chops as one of the best prospects in the country primed to make a splash in the National Basketball Association. As they get older, it seems like they just get better.

Alford, a senior guard, scored 13 points, all in the second half, in his final game with UCLA.
