Halftime: UCLA 37, Arizona 33
UCLA leads Arizona by four at the half behind 12 points from both Michael Roll and Reeves Nelson.
Of course, we've seen this before (see: last week in Tucson, Ariz.). But for the most part, No. 4 seed UCLA looks like a team that wants to keep playing.
Nelson, wearing protective goggles to help ease his "apprehension" regarding his eyes, has made all six of his attempts. Roll, meanwhile, has bounced back nicely from a poor shooting performance in a loss to Arizona State last Saturday. He has hit five shots.
The Bruins came out playing man-to-man, but have switched to zone from time to time. UCLA's biggest lead reached nine on a breakaway layup by Roll.
