UCLA Bruins at North Carolina Tar Heels Saturday, December 18, 2021
We saw a couple of big games this past weekend and some really high-intensity games. We had a few upsets this past week and a ton of really good games. The conference slate is starting to creep into the picture for a majority of teams, and now is when the real basketball gets underway.
This is going to be a very good week of basketball leading up to the holiday. There are a few really good conference matchups this week. If we have learned anything so far is that no team is safe this year.
We will take a look at five games from this upcoming week and break down the matchup and who has the edge coming into the game.
Tough Non-Conference Matchup #4 UCLA Bruins at North Carolina Tar Heels
The UCLA Bruins will make a splash as they are scheduled to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday. UCLA is ranked #4 in the country and is 7-1 on the season. North Carolina sits at 6-2 on the year and has been ranked at times this season. This is going to be a big game for both teams as a very tough non-conference game.
Both of these teams have a stud that will lead them into the game. Johnny Juzang scores 17.1 points a game for UCLA, while Caleb Love scores 16.3 points a game for North Carolina. I would lean UCLA in this one to win going away.
