Isaac Hamilton vs. Kris Barnes
Isaac Hamilton was the only other Bruin other than Alford to exhaust his eligibility. Though he was not NBA Draft material, he was still a solid contributor to the Bruins. Last season, he showed his prowess as a shooter as he tied a school record 9 3-pointers in a game.
Unfortunately he was not consistent and disappeared in games from time to time. That could change for the Bruins in 2017-18.
Alford has not had luck signing small forwards, but he hit the jackpot during the 2017 recruiting cycle when Indiana native Kris Wilkes declared his allegiance tot he Bruins.
Wilkes has it all. He can shoot, drive, dish, dunk and is not afraid to play defense. His presence will be felt next season and will only add to the high-powered offense UCLA will run.
Advantage: Kris Wilkes
