UCLA vs San Diego State Preview
UCLA has the benefit of experience this year, with eight members of last year’s squad returning, including five starters. Tyger Campbell, David Singleton, Jaime Jaquez Jr, Jalen Hill and Chris Smith have all returned for the Bruins, and all should be significant contributors this season. Smith was the team’s leading scorer last year, netting 13.1 points a game, and Hill led the team in rebounds, hauling in 6.9 per contest.
The Bruins finished their 2019 campaign winning two of their last 11 games, and head coach Mick Cronin said that starting this season off against the likes of the Aztecs will be a great test for his team right out of the gate.
“The good thing about playing a San Diego State, you’re going to find out what you’re made of right off the bat and where we’re at and if we picked up where we left off,” Cronin said. “It’s important to me that we get in there Wednesday night and compete on every possession,” Cronin said, “and we try to play together, we try to play smart, we try to physically compete.”
The Bruins had a 19-12 overall record last year, and they’ll be facing an Aztecs squad that finished atop the Mountain West with a 30-2 mark.
San Diego State saw one of its best players, Malachi Flynn, get drafted 29th overall in the NBA draft last week, and the team will have a hard time filling that void. Graduate-transfer Terrell Gomez will now slide into the point guard slot for the Aztecs, and shooting guard Matt Mitchell should be a larger focal point for SDSU coach Brian Dutcher’s offense. Mitchell averaged 12.2 points a game as a junior last year, and his coach is beyond glad he’s back for one more year.
“We are very happy to have Matt returning for his senior season,” Dutcher said heading into this week’s game. “To be able to fulfill his dream of playing at the next level, it was important to meet with NBA teams and hear their evaluations so he can continue his development. As we focus on earning another Mountain West championship in 2020-21, this experience can only be a positive for Matt and the Aztecs.”
SDSU averaged 74.8 points and 35 rebounds a game last season, while UCLA scored 69.5 points and 36.6 boards per game. The Bruins are 15-6 all-time against San Diego State. The two teams last met in 2012, when SDSU won, 78-69.
