North Carolina is coming off of a huge win against Baylor where they ran out to a huge lead and barely hung on to win in overtime. UCLA had some early struggles against Saint Mary’s but dominated the second half. One of the key points of this game is going to be the health of Jaime Jaquez. If he is healthy, I like UCLA to win.
