UCLA Clear-Cut Favorites as Tourney Approaches
With the major conference tournaments approaching, and the NCAA tournament just a week away, I believe that the UCLA Bruins are the clear-cut favorites to cut down the nets in Phoenix and be crowned National Champions. They have all of the ingredients: a sensational floor-general in Lonzo Ball, a senior stalwart in Bryce Alford, and the number one scoring offense in the nation, as they average upwards of 90 points per contest. Some will say they struggle to stop a nosebleed defensively, but they don't have to. The goal of basketball is to score more points than the opposition and no teams scores more points or is more efficient in doing so than the squad from Westwood.
