UCLA men’s basketball finishes seventh in Pac-12 after loss to Utah

UCLA entered the week with a chance to rise as high as third in the Pac-12. Instead, the Bruins tumbled all the way to seventh.
After UCLA’s 92-81 loss to Utah on Saturday, Colorado’s victory over USC, Oregon’s upset over Washington and Oregon State’s win over Washington State, the Bruins fell into a first-round matchup with 10th-seeded Stanford in the Pac-12 basketball tournament. UCLA’s postseason begins at 6 p.m. PT in at T-Mobile Arena on Wednesday.

UCLA’s only opportunity to earn an NCAA Tournament bid would be to win four games in four nights at the Pac-12 tournament. Colorado is the only team to have done so since the conference expanded to 12 teams.
The Bruins split their season series with Stanford, dominating the Cardinal by 22 points in Pauley Pavilion and then getting blown out by 24 in Palo Alto three weeks ago.
In their regular-season finale, the Bruins fell behind by as many as 27 points in the first half against Utah. They climbed to within eight with 6:44 to go in the second half, but never got any closer. Kris Wilkes led UCLA, which was playing without center Moses Brown, with 20 points. Brown was suspended for a violation of the athletic department’s student-athlete code of conduct.
