The UCLA Bruins and the Washington Huskies will meet up on the college basketball court Saturday.

UCLA enters this matchup at 12-9 on the year. Following a three-game losing streak against Oregon State, USC and Arizona State, the Bruins have taken out Arizona and Washington State in their last pair of outings.

In the win over the Cougars, UCLA’s Prince Ali, Kris Wilkes and Moses Brown each had a team-high 16 points. Between the three players, the Bruins got three assists and 17 rebounds in that victory as well.

Over on the Washington side, they’re 17-4 this season. The Huskies are currently enjoying a nice 10-game win streak, taking out Sanford, California, Oregon, Oregon State and USC in just their last five.

In the victory versus the Trojans, Washington’s Noah Dickerson led the charge on 21 points, 14 rebounds and two assists. Matisse Thybulle added 17 points and six rebounds for the Huskies in that one, and David Crisp chipped in 15 points.

The Bruins are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Saturday games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games. The under is 4-1 in UCLA’s last five overall and 4-1 in their last five versus the Pac-12.

Meanwhile, the Huskies are 4-0 ATS in their last four Saturday games and 4-0 ATS in their last four home games. Washington is 8-0 ATS in their last eight overall and 8-0 ATS in their last eight versus the Pac-12.

The Bruins hit a pretty bad patch in the losses to Oregon State and USC, but since then they’ve looked better and tallied at least 73 in points in each of their last three outings.

That said, Washington has been putting up points at a nice clip, bagging at least 71 in five of their last six games. UCLA will likely keep things interesting for most of this game, but in the end I like the red-hot Huskies to take the cover on this one.
