Now that UCLA dropped 107 points on USC -- making more fun of Andy Enfield's comments about slow-down ball at Pauley -- the Bruins are embracing the chance to test that offense against one of the nation's best defenses.

"Our offensive production has been outstanding and we're probably playing the best defensive team we have played all year," UCLA coach Steve Alford said of Arizona, according to the Los Angeles Times. "They hang their hat at the defensive end. Something has got to give. We have four days to come up with a good game plan."

The Bruins are averaging 87.1 points a game while shooting 52.7 percent from the field over 14 total games so far.

After UCLA's blowout win today, Enfield used a closet-sized room to tell media heĀ found no positives in the loss.


Elsewhere in the Pac-12, Colorado was led by guards Askia Booker and Spencer Dinwiddie while handing Oregon its first loss of the season.

And Jermaine Marshall figured a way to score big in ASU's win over Washington State.


Solomon Hill was disappointed that he didn't get to play more during his brief D-League experience.
