UCLA at Cal: Halftime update

UCLA is playing its worst basketball of the season, and is down 47-22 at the half against Cal. The win over Washington State now looks like an illusion cast by the Cougars’ own ineptitude, as the Bruins’ offense is again finding new lows. Barring an insanely hot-shooting second half, they’ll finish below 40 percent from the field for the fourth time in five games.

The Bears are crushing UCLA in just about every statistical category. Cal has four players in double figures; UCLA doesn’t have one with more than six points. Cal has 24 rebounds to UCLA’s 14; 26 points in the paint to UCLA’s 10; 8 second-chance points to four; 10 points off turnovers to two.

The Bruins are shooting 30.3 percent while Cal just can’t miss (58.8). The last time UCLA shot below 30 percent was during a 65-55 loss to USC on March 13, 2009 — one in which the sixth-seeded Trojans bounced the second-seeded Bruins.

UCLA still hasn’t taken a free throw tonight.

    Mora needs to take our basketball team to San Berdoo. They are so mentally weak! It is really pathetic.

    I have sad news for Shabazz. You don’t go in the lottery with a season like he’s had. How do you say you are NBA talent if you can’t lead a team above such lowly talent. And even if you can’t lead them, carry them.

    Too many bad losses for anybody in this team to think they are ready for the Association.
