A few hours after Aaron Holiday was named to the midseason watch list for the John R. Wooden Award, the junior guard showed just why he made the cut as one of the top 25 players in the country.

The Campbell Hall High product had 20 points and six assists with 4-of-4 shooting from 3-point range in UCLA’s 83-64 win over Utah on Thursday at Pauley Pavilion as the Bruins (13-4, 4-1 Pac-12) stayed in first place in the Pac-12.

“There’s not very many, if any, that are better than him,” head coach Steve Alford said of Holiday.

Links to wrap up of the game:

  • Dunc Wilson

    Love the shooting touch, but – in the end – defense is going to win this, or lose this…

    • Hogsman

      Need both – Howland’s teams played good defense, but often struggled to score.

    • MPPBruin

      Such is the story of the last couple of years of Alford’s teams.
