Something tells me UCLA v. Arizona used to be a lot prettier.
The Bruins and Wildcats combined for 21 first-half turnovers in the first half as the Wildcats took a 38-33 lead into the locker room.
The lead would’ve been bigger if not for Reeves Nelson.
The lead would’ve been smaller, if not for Derrick Williams.
Nelson had 17 points and five rebounds in the first half and Williams had 12 to pace the Wildcats, but Arizona got nine points from guard Lamont Jones while Nelson got little help from his teammates.
Lazeric Jones and Tyler Honeycutt combined for just two first-half points, though Honeycutt had a game-high seven rebounds and Jones a game-high five assists.
