UCLA Gymnastics Travels to Stanford to Open Pac-12 Schedule

UCLA Gymnastics Travels to Stanford to Open Pac-12 Schedule

Margzetta Frazier | BruinsNation.com The Bruins will take on the Cardinal in a rare Monday night meet. After scoring a season-high 197.425 at a tri-meet against BYU and Utah State last weekend, the UCLA Bruins will take on Stanford tonight for the second time this season. Last Time Out UCLA began last weekend’s tri-meet on the beam. For this outing, head coach Chris Waller tinkered with the lineup, moving senior Kyla Ross to third in the order instead of having her ties up the event at the anchor spot. All six Bruin scores were at least 9.800 or higher, with Grace Glenn leading off...

UCLA Basketball News Roundup: A Manual on the Wrong Ways to Break the Press

Jalen Hill shares a number with Kobe Bryant and had a good game. Unfortunately he was almost alone in that respect. | Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports UCLA’s 96-75 loss inspired some writers and it was not good for the Bruins. While the first half on Sunday was ugly for UCLA Bruins fans, it provided the writers with license to act like creative writers as opposed to news reporters. The AP led their story with: UCLA was in a giving mood and Oregon was only too happy to be on the receiving end. The 12th-ranked Ducks took advantage of a season-worst 23 turnovers by the Bruins to score 34...

Game Thread, Preview and How to Watch: UCLA Bruins at Oregon Ducks

We’ll need some great defense from Jalen Hill tonight to beat Oregon’s excellent offense. | Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports The Bruin defense has been elite the last two games. Can they keep it up? This afternoon, the UCLA Bruins will wrap up this weekend’s road trip when they face the Oregon Ducks in Eugene at 2 pm PT on Fox. UCLA is a last-second three away from being 3-0 on the road in conference. They have done this through timely shooting and very good to great team defense. They have overcome road crowds and road refs. But, now is the toughest part. Ben Bolch writes in the...

UCLA Basketball: Oregon State Game was a Cool Cronin Win

UCLA Basketball: Oregon State Game was a Cool Cronin Win

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ Mick Cronin deserves the credit for Thursday’s road win over Oregon State. Thursday night was the best win of the season for UCLA Bruins head coach Coach Cronin. Yes, winning at Washington is tougher but the way they won last night was all on Coach Cronin. It is rare that I disagree with Dimitri but I thought the 62-58 win at Gill Coliseum over the Oregon State Beavers was a thing of beauty. UCLA overcame the SPTR. For any new readers, “SPTR” is an abbreviation used on Bruins Nation that describes the quality of the Pac-12 refs. Don’t get me wrong, I...

UCLA Grits Out Road Win over Oregon State 62-58

No new pictures have uploaded yet, so enjoy this one from last year I guess. | Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports It wasn’t pretty, but the Bruins are leaving Corvallis with a win. Let me start out by saying: this was not a fun game to watch. Yet that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If anything, turning games into unwatchable affairs is currently an excellent strategy for coach Mick Cronin and the UCLA Bruins, and that turned out to be the case yet again as the Bruins ground the game down to a crawl and came away with a 62-58 victory over the Oregon State Beavers. Really, UCLA did so...

In order for the Bruins to win tonight’s game against Oregon State, they will need to neutralize Oregon State’s Tres Tinkle. | Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports If UCLA wants to win tonight, the Bruins will need to stop Oregon State’s leader Tres Tinkle. Tonight, the UCLA Bruins will be in Corvallis, Oregon to take on the Oregon State Beavers at 8 pm PT. The Beavers come into tonight’s game with a 12-6 record, but that might be deceiving as Oregon State has been one of the worst teams in the Pac-12 to this point. So far, the Beavers are just 2-4 in Pac-12 play which puts them...
