overall a nice win, but ucla's defense needs to get better. it's hard to write, but they have been inconsistent defensively this entire year. granted thomas and dentmon can put pressure on your perimeter defense, but ucla, even collison, could not keep wash out of the key and getting high percentage looks. and despite being undersized ucla needed to send 4 or 5 guys to the defensive boards because wash continually got 2nd chance opportunities. brockman had 2 or 3 put backs without a ucla defender near him. ucla's offensive "shortcomings" have been greatly exaggerated. they are an efficient offensive team and looked good on that side of the ball last night. ucla needs to crash the boards more consistently as a team and keep other teams from penetrating. they still have the potential to get to detroit, but if they don't step their game up on the defensive side, they may not make it out of the first weekend.

UCLA is physical team with everyone it beats and that is ok. But when someone comes along who is more physical then them, its a crisis. If you get beat at your game, take it like a man and come back harder.
