The UCLA Bruins didn't have the most awe-inspiring of contests against the USC Trojans, but they did manage to pull it out after a big run early in the second half to take a double digit lead for most of the remainder of the game. UCLA will probably have to improve if they plan on beating Arizona. The Bruins have played the Wildcats close in their previous two contests, splitting by winning on each team's homecourt.
If UCLA wins on Thursday, they will face the Washington-Oregon State winner on Friday evening.
