Gamethread: UCLA Bruins (19-13) vs. Arizona Wildcats (21-10)

Judging a team's resolve is easy to do after heartbreaking losses even moreso following embarrassing ones.

The Arizona Wildcats are only four days removed from their 87-80 loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils, and redemption should be easy motivation -- that's without mentioning that their NCAA Tournament berth is on the line today, when the Wildcats face the UCLA Bruins in Staples Center.

Match-ups don't favor the undersized Wildcats, but Sean Miller can perhaps hope that the Bruins play as badly as they did Wednesday night, when it took them two thirds of the game to get a handle on the woeful USC Trojans.

And of course, it'll be of note how Miller handles the rotations and starting lineup with point guard Josiah Turner suspended indefinitely
