UCLA vs. Marquette CBB Prediction:
Both teams enter Maui undefeated on the year, this will be a good early season test to see the strength of each team.
I like the more experienced Marquette team in this one. UCLA lost nearly all their production for a season ago, and while they did bring in some solid transfers and guys like Bona taking on bigger roles this season, this does not feel like a good early season spot. Marquette is very sound on both ends of the floor, they’ll be too much to handle for the inexperienced Bruins.
