It wasn’t pretty, but UCLA got the W on the opening night of their 95th season by beating Drexel 72-67.
This is a somewhat young UCLA team. The starting lineup tonight was sophomore Kyle Anderson, senior David Wear, sophomore Tony Parker, sophomore Jordan Adams and junior Norman Powell.
But it was freshman Zach LaVine who really sparked the Bruins to the win tonight. He came off the bench to score 14 points. This kid has some talent and will be fun to watch this season.
UCLA plays Oakland on Tuesday night in Westwood. Let’s see if they can control the sloppiness and put together a better looking game. This is UCLA after all. Fans are expecting wins immediately.
