-Mar 2 vs OregonW, 20-10, 11-6

-Mar 5 vs Oregon StateW, 21-10, 12-6

UCLA should be able to end the season with victories in a two-game home stand against the Oregons. The Bruins seem to be able to finish strong (especially at Pauley Pavilion) and if they are healthy, should have some impactful victories that impress the NCAA Tournament selection committee (though strong Pac-12 Tournament performance would also help that cause).

OVERALL 21-10, PAC-12 12-6

4th Place finish in the Pac-12 Conference

The Bruins should finish the season 4th place in conference, giving them a first round bye. The unfortunate thing about that is they will probably meet the #1-seed Arizona Wildcats in the semifinals which could once again end in a loss.

Still, it should be enough to give UCLA a 7th, 8th or 9th seed in the NCAA Tournament with, at best, another Sweet 16 exit.
