UCLA remains undefeated with 86-73 win over Ohio State in CBS Sports Classic – Los Angeles Times

A dozen games into the season, the question surrounding UCLA has shifted.

It’s no longer what it’s going to take for the Bruins to keep winning but what will be required for them to lose a game.

UCLA played a ragged, turnover-filled first half Saturday afternoon at T-Mobile Arena and didn’t shoot particularly well over the final 20 minutes. None of it mattered. The second-ranked Bruins prevailed fairly comfortably, 86-73, over Ohio State in the CBS Sports Classic after their four-guard lineup provided the finishing touches.

UCLA played the final 8½ minutes with guards Lonzo Ball, Isaac Hamilton, Aaron Holiday and Bryce Alford alongside power forward TJ Leaf. The Bruins immediately generated two steals and seemed a step quicker than the Buckeyes for the balance of the game, forcing six turnovers that allowed them to go into run-and-fun mode.
