Is Washington State a better team than UCLA?
UCLA is the better team, but Washington State is a bit of a late-season dark horse with the skill set it brings to the table. Wazzou’s ability to create turnovers and pull down offensive rebounds, when added to excellent shot defense, makes for a dangerous mix.

UCLA is an absolute juggernaut on both ends of the floor. The Bruins rank inside the top-15 nationally in both offensive and defensive efficiency, don’t turn the ball over, and are a great offensive rebounding unit. Washington’s offense, DiSturco explains, is a little more one-dimensional.
