Jaime Jaquez Jr. led the Bruins with 15 points, while Jalen Hill added 14 points and David Singleton chipped in 11 points. Chris Smith leads UCLA in scoring at 12.1 points per game. The Bruins limp into Sunday's contest having won just one of their last seven games. However, UCLA is 6-0 in its last six meetings against the Golden Bears.

Bradley leads Cal in scoring with 17.4 points per game. The Golden Bears feature just two players averaging double-digit points per game and their offense has struggled mightily all season.
