UCLA, Creighton Should Bring Fireworks To Hall of Fame Classic

If you’re looking for offense, then you have come to the right place. The UCLA Bruins and Creighton Bluejays should bring tons of points to their matchup Monday, as the two teams are averaging 88.3 and 97.7 ppg respectively during this young season.

Shark Bites
  • UCLA is 1-8 ATS in its last 9 games.
  • Creighton is 2-6 ATS in its last 8 games against teams with winning records.
  • UCLA’s Thomas Welsh is averaging 13 points and 11.3 rebounds per game this season.

UCLA is leaning on plenty of young faces, as the Bruins needed to replace their top four scorers from last year’s squad. Highly touted freshmen Kris Wilkes and Jaylen Hands have answered the call, with the guard duo averaging a combined 32.6 points while shooting 50 percent from the floor and 57.1 percent from deep.

The Bluejays have proven they are the real deal, putting up 92 points on a ranked Northwestern squad last week. Unlike UCLA, Creighton is leaning on veteran contributors Marcus Foster and Khyri Thomas on the offensive end. The upperclassmen are both averaging over 17 points and shooting over 58 percent from the floor.
