Player to Watch:

Gyorgy Goloman – The power forward has often taken a back seat to other Bruins, but he has been stepping up lately, which is something the Bruins need… another veteran to take on some of the heavy lifting.

Last Word:

More from Go Joe Bruin

Arizona State turned heads in the non-conference season, going 12-0 and shooting up the Top 25 rankings. Unfortunately, they lost their grip once Pac-12 play started and are now in the bottom half of the conference. Despite the fall, they are still considered a dangerous team. Head coach Bobby Hurley, as intense as he is, has made his team just as intense, they just need to learn how to finish games.

They did that on Thursday as they were down by nine points against USC and fought back to get the win. UCLA, who has also let off the gas late in games, seems to be learning from their mistakes. The Bruins are in the toughest stretch of their conference schedule (USC, Arizona and ASU) and are surprisingly 2-0.

If UCLA wants to go 3-0, they need to come out with the same energy they did in their last four games, which have all been wins. The Bruins seem to be meshing nicely and need to keep up the production. Holiday and Welsh continue to be spark for this team, but other veterans and their youth seem to be picking up the pace. Goloman, Wilkes, Prince Ali and Jaylen Hands have all had flashes of greatness and need to be the X-factors in this game.

It will be close, and even though the Sun Devils are looking to make their own mark, the Bruins have the momentum to get the win, which they should be able to do. It’s going to be very close.

Final side note, if UCLA wins and USC beats Arizona today, there will be a three-way tie for first place in the Pac-12 involving these three teams. No pressure though.
