So, Bruins lost vs Texas, and since then, they have played really solid. 12 Point victory over the Davidson Flyers, then whipping Idaho St. by 40 points. Western Illinios was able to stay within 30 against the Bruins, losing by 25, then the Bruins went to Michigan and had a tough victory, despite winning by 15. Then to end pre-season play, they beat UC Davis by nearly 30.
First conference game and they beat up on 20th ranked Stanford Cardinal by 9, lead by 5 treys from Josh Shipp.
Tonight, they face Ryan Anderson and his Golden Bears who are coming off a double digit victory against one and done sensation OJ Mayo
After five treys @ Stanford, so far in less then 8 minutes, Josh Shipp has two of them playing @ the Golden Bears, and has a 3 point play on top of that too boot. 16-6 UCLA leads at the moment with 13:29 remaining in the first half.
Wow, that was a crazy turn of events, sloppy but exciting play. Missed jumpers, missed layups, bad passes and decision making finally ended by a foul and Aboya shooting two, when it could have easily been an And1. Bruins can't let the Bears stay in this game, they need to string together some scoring and try to blow this game open

Edit: Damn, they just said Russell's body fat is at 4%, explains how he's able to have such a dynamic first step and be able to get up so high
Keefe got away with a violation, but is playing solid. Anderson has been quiet thus far, and when he gets going, my Bruins could be in trouble.
Shipp just picked up his second foul, which could end up being trouble if he picks up anymore for the rest of the half since Mike Roll is not available and might be done for the year. Bruins are playing somewhat sloppy, I'm sure they'll change it around since there is no way Ben Howland let's this continue
Bruins beat the Cal Bears by 12, 70-58 and have completed a road sweep in the Pac-10. Don't be surprised if it's the only one with how tough and deep the league is[minus Oregon St. and Washington as both are just decent].
Love lead the way with 19 points and 14 rebounds on 8-10 FG with Shipp chipping in 13, Collison with 14 and Westbrook with 11 off the bench.
UCLA will host the Washington schools next week, in what should be a tough game vs Wazzou next Saturday and one they should win vs Washington on Thursday night
