UCLA could face off against Purdue in their final game of the Maui Invitational tournament.
The UCLA Bruins are part of a stacked field of top-tier teams from big-name conferences that include teams like Gonzaga, Kansas, Marquette, Purdue, Syracuse, and Tennessee that are participating in the 2023 Maui Jim Maui Invitational. The way the bracket is set up, if Purdue defeats Gonzaga in the first round but loses to the winner of the Tennesse/Syracuse game and UCLA defeats Marquette but loses to Kansas in the next round, these two teams would face one another in the final round of the tournament. UCLA fans would love to see Purdue and star player Zack Edey in the Maui Invitational.
