UCLA rallies for win

No. 22 UCLA rebounded from a 14-point first-half deficit to beat Stanford 76-71 Thursday at Maples Pavilion, ending a three-game road losing streak.
The Cardinal started the game making 10 of 11 shots from the field, but UCLA limited Stanford to 14 of 38 from the field the rest of the way.
Josh Shipp paced UCLA (21-7, 10-5 Pac-10) with 24 points and Alfred Aboya added 16.

    Whatever Holiday’s got was passed on to Collison this game. Collison looked like a scared little squirrel (LOL–no Aboya pun intended). We’d be up the creek if not for Shipp and Aboya. Can Howland please start Lee instead of Holiday? Jesus help us the rest of the way. On a positive note, Gordon’s gonna rock in the near future.

    DC seems to fade down the stretch. Best I ever saw him play was the Maui Tourney. Playmaking, making shots, tough D. He looks indecisive and wants someone else to take over the game when it’s SUPPOSED to be him!

    At least the Bruins won. I’ll take what I can get from this UCLA team!

    Bruins didn’t start with a sense of urgency, with intensity, as if they had received a wake up call, play as if their backs were against the wall, like there was no tomorrow, or like they realized what was at stake. Hopefully, they will be able to turn it on come tournament time. Nice four straight free throws by Aboya!

    i’m glad they pulled out the victory,

    but then, why does it feel like we lost?

    I’m deeply disappointed in the current state of this team. No chemistry, lazy defense, and lack of urgency.

    I find this team fun to watch for the reason that you never know what your going to get.
    This is a rebuilding year, anything that comes from it should be regaurded as such. Its fun to be a UCLA fan, win or lose.

    I thought Josh played inspired ball and had that refuse to lose attitude which he has shown in spurts before. The impressive stat for him in particular was 7 rebounds. It also was obvious that Roll and Lee made a concerted effort on the boards too. In the games that the Bruins have lost and been outrebounded, the annoying problem isn’t that they’re getting outrebounded but the fact that you see Aboya boxing out and fighting for defensive board and the others already cheating out on the break.
