UCLA football boasts a rich history along the offensive line.
The program, which churned out three All-Americans on the line in the 1990’s, has seen at least one lineman selected in the NFL draft in three of the past four years.
When UCLA men’s basketball beat USC on Feb. 3, Reggie Miller joined the Bruins in the locker room afterward, everybody clapping and hooting and hollering about the exciting 82-79 win over the Trojans.
Rarely had Kris Wilkes struggled to score.
A five-star recruit who tore through Indiana high school basketball, the freshman guard started the year looking like he might do the same at the college level, averaging 16.8 points a game in his first four outings.
Throughout the week leading up to Thursday night’s matchup against Oregon State, UCLA was focused on one thing above all: rebounding.
It paid off, as the Bruins (18-8, 9-5 Pac-12) dominated the Beavers (13-12, 5-8) on the boards en route to a 75-68 home victory, avenging a Jan.
At least on one side of the ball, the Bruins are playing the way coach Steve Alford wants them to, by riding a three-game winning streak built on strong offensive performances.
UCLA men’s basketball has traversed an up-and-down season in coach Steve Alford’s fifth year in Westwood – from suspending three freshmen for shoplifting in China to defeating Kentucky for the third consecutive year.
For most of the year, the most interesting storylines surrounding UCLA and USC men’s basketball have been off the court, with the Bruins’ season defined by the early-season incident in China and the Trojans’ by the stain of connections to the FBI’s investigation of bribery in college basketball.

Things looked bad.
Already in the midst of a three-game losing streak, UCLA men’s basketball (14-7, 5-4 Pac-12) was trailing by double digits midway through the first half against the Pac-12’s last-place team, California (7-14, 1-7), when senior center Thomas Welsh headed to the locker room with a sprained left knee.
For 17 games, offense was not a problem for the Bruins.
But for the second time in its past two games, UCLA men’s basketball (13-6, 4-3 Pac-12) lost as a result of poor shooting, falling 69-63 at Oregon State (11-7, 3-3) on Thursday night.
It’s a big trip for the Bruins.
UCLA men’s basketball (13-5, 4-2 Pac-12) heads north this week to take on Oregon State (10-7, 2-3) and Oregon (12-6, 2-3), looking to pad an NCAA Tournament resume that has grown shaky after recent losses to Stanford (10-8, 4-1) and Colorado (11-7, 3-3).
