The Bruins trailed by as many as 23 points in the second half Thursday night.
The game was getting out of hand, Cougar guard Isaac Bonton was putting up points in bunches and coach Mick Cronin was giving sophomore guard/forward Jaime Jaquez Jr.
When the Cougars and Huskies made the trip down to Pauley Pavilion in January, the Bruins were unblemished in conference play and sitting alone at the top of the standings.
Instead of playing three games in five days, the Bruins had a full week of practice leading up to their matchup with the Beavers.
“The kids would much rather play than practice,” said coach Mick Cronin.
