What you need to know about UCLA
UCLA has bounced back from a loss to then-No. 1 Gonzaga in November by putting together a six-game winning streak. The Bruins had five games either canceled or postponed due to COVID-19, which led to them sitting out from Dec. 12 to Jan. 5. They have returned from the lengthy layoff with wins over Long Beach State and California.
Guard Tyger Campbell made 5 of 8 from the 3-point line in the pair of wins last week, earning Pac-12 Player of the Week honors. Campbell is averaging 12.8 points and a team-high 4.7 assists, while junior guard Johnny Juzang leads the team with 16.0 points per game. UCLA has won four of its last five home games against Oregon.
What you need to know about Oregon
Oregon has now won three straight games since falling to then-No. 1 Baylor in mid-December. The Ducks have recorded wins over Pepperdine, Utah and Oregon State, but COVID-19 issues have led to the postponement of three games during that stretch. Eric Williams Jr. knocked down a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 12.4 seconds remaining and Oregon held on to beat Oregon State on Monday.
Williams had scored only five total points in his previous four games, but he recorded a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Senior guard Will Richardson is scoring a team-high 13.4 points and is dishing out 3.5 assists per game. Guards Jacob Young and De’Vion Harmon are both in double figures as well.
