The Arizona Wildcats and the UCLA Bruins will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Pauley Pavilion.

ABOUT ARIZONA (17-2, 6-0 Pac-12): The Wildcats have kept winning thanks to players such as 7-foot freshman Lauri Markkanen, who has scored at least 20 points in three straight games for the first time this season. He likely will be matched up against 7-footer Thomas Welsh, who doesn’t have the shooting range of Markkanen but can score from a variety of spots on the floor inside the arc. The Bruins may opt to guard Markkanen with 6-10 freshman TJ Leaf and leave Welsh to cover Dusan Ristic, Arizona’s other 7-foot starter who strictly is a post presence – but a good one.

ABOUT UCLA (19-1, 6-1): In addition to Markkanen and Leaf, this game will feature another freshman who is one of the best in the country in Lonzo Ball. The point guard only attempted five shots against Arizona State, but his final numbers showed how versatile and valuable he is, as he finished with 10 points, seven rebounds and 12 assists. Ball’s court vision and unselfishness went a long way toward getting Hamilton out of his shooting slump on Thursday, though it’s reasonable to expect he’ll be more offensive-minded in his first game against Arizona.

Oddsmakers currently have the Bruins listed as 5½-point favorites versus the Wildcats, while the game’s total is sitting at 158.5.

Last time out for UCLA, they were a 102-80 winner as they battled Sun Devils at home. They covered in the match as a -19.5-point favorite.

Arizona was a 73-66 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Trojans. They covered the -3.5-point spread as favorites.
