Back-to-Back losses by the Bruins should allow Mick Cronin to get his team refocused on the task at-hand and Pepperdine is in a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. UCLA's metrics are strong despite losses to Illinois and Baylor and Pepperdine is weak on the glass while also turning the ball over at a higher rate than they'd like. Look for UCLA to get right back on track in a late west coast affair. I'm on UCLA. Thanks and best of luck! Jack Banks.
