Update: These are two of the top shooting teams in the nation. Utah is tied for second at 51.2% and UCLA is fourth at 50.6%. The Bruins, though, shot only 39.4% from the field in a 69-56 victory over Colorado on Thursday. Coach Steve Alford said the Bruins’ tenacity got them the victory. “We got a lot of loose balls, we gained extra possessions, we got a lot of defensive stops,” he said. Utah presents a couple problems. Forward Jordan Loveridge is averaging 16.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. Guard Delon Wright is averaging 15.9 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists. Wright had 22 points, six rebounds, six steals, five assists and two blocked shots in an 84-66 victory over USC on Thursday. The Utes are expected to be without 6-foot-9 forward Renan Lenz, who sat out the USC game with a sprained ankle.
