Part of the reason for UCLA’s improved play during its three-game winning streak has been the play of the point guards.
The Bruins’ junior duo of Lazeric Jones and Jerime Anderson has combined for just seven turnovers in the past three games, spanning 137 minutes.
In the four-game losing streak that preceded the team’s recent roll, Jones and Anderson combined for 21 turnovers.
“It’s been really important; really we’re just trying to make sure we cut down on our turnovers, because we know our team is going to make great decisions when we get them the ball,” Jones said. “It’s just (about) getting them the ball.”
