The (Not) Turning Point

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.”

    Agreed, VB. Teams that do not match up well against us down low will be in a world of hurt if we feed the BIGS. I am impressed with the way this Ben Howland team is (a) attacking the zone and (b) looking to pound it down low first. That will open up the perimeter for guys like Honeycutt and even Laz Jones. He has shown that he can knock down the three. If he gets a bit more consistent — and Lee gets his act together on the perimeter, we could be a very hard team to defend.
