Friday night the conference got a nice resume win when UCLA took down 7 Missouri 97-94 in overtime at Pauley. I feel that it’s worth mentioning Utah also got a win that was overshadowed by the Bruins win. Here are my six things to look at over the weekend in the conference of champions.
1 Must mention that UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammed scored 27 points last night in the victory including the game winning three pointer.
2 An under the radar game this weekend is the Hartford Hawks (7-5) traveling to Colorado (9-2). The Buffs are 5-0 at the Coors Events Center and need to be careful not overlooking the America East school.
3 In a rematch of a great NCAA tournament game of yester year the Washington Huskies (8-4) travel to face the Connecticut Huskies (9-2) at 4:30 pm which can be seen on ESPN2.
4 Harvard (6-4) comes to the bay area to tangle with Cal (8-3) both teams could use the RPI boost which this game should provide.
5 Sunday’s lone game has the Flyers of Dayton (9-3) playing at USC (4-8) which tips at 4 pm on the Pac-12 Network.
6 Two games on New Year’s Eve which will be mentioned in the next edition of the watch.
