Stanford Sees Green In Win Over UCLA
By Bruin Basketball Report
The Bruins finished with a split in the bay area this week after losing to the Stanford Cardinal 70-59 at Maples Pavilion.
UCLA had no answer for Stanford's Jeremy Green who scored 17 of his career-high 30 points in the first half. Green finished 11 of 18 from the field including 5 of 8 from three-point land.
Despite outshooting Stanford 54.8% versus 47.2% e field and outrebounding them, 30-25, the Bruins weren't able to pull it together and seemed out of rhythm for most of the contest.
The Bruins had a whopping 23 turnovers which resulted in Stanford having 9 more shot attempts and 13 more free throw tries.
UCLA came into the game averaging a sloppy 15.3 turnovers.
Seniors Nikola Dragovic scored 13 points and Michael Roll had 12 for the Bruins. Malcolm Lee added 11 points.
Freshman Tyler Honeycutt got the starting nod again at forward and responded with a game-high 8 rebounds and 3 steals.
Honeycutt continues to show value to the team not only in the box score but in the intangibles of the game. The Bruin offensive flow is much better with him on the floor. He played 26 minutes in the game.
With the loss UCLA falls to 7-9, 2-2. They will now face crosstown rival USC next Saturday on January 16 at home in Pauley Pavilion.
