Ugly, ugly game so far as the Bruins and Huskies are tied at 28. Both teams are shooting below 40 percent, and both are coughing the ball up with incredible frequency. Washington’s giveaways have been especially egregious — their 13 turnovers eclipsing their 11 field goals — but UCLA has just four assists to eight turnovers. Shabazz Muhammad has 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting, but only one of his teammates has made more than a single shot.
Needless to say, this is hardly the way the Pac-12 wanted to represent itself on ESPN — particularly following up Illinois upset of No. 1 Indiana.
