Bruins Seek Revenge Against Cardinal

The UCLA Bruins (10-11, 5-4) will face the Stanford Cardinal (10-11, 4-5) at 7:30 Thursday night in Pauley Pavilion. The Bruins split with the Oregon schools on the road last weekend while the Cardinal were swept in Arizona.

In the first match-up between the two teams on January 9 at Stanford, the Cardinal defeated the Bruins 70-59 in one of the Bruins’ poorer performances of the year.

At first glance, the statistics in that game appear favorable to UCLA. The Bruins shot nearly 55 percent for the game to Stanford’s 47 percent and out rebounded the Cardinal 30-25. With stats like that, someone could conclude that the Bruins won the game going away. However, that certainly was not the case.
