The 2012-13 UCLA basketball season has been one of polar opposites. Glory and defeat. A road win against Arizona and a home loss to crosstown rival USC. It’s been everything it was expected to be at times and light years away at others.
Twenty-two games into the season, the Bruins are 16-6 with a nonconference win against then-No. 7 Missouri and a loss to Cal Poly, and are 6-3 in the Pac-12 (4th) with a recent two-game skid against Arizona State and USC after a four-game winning streak to tip off conference play.
Midway through its Pac-12 schedule, UCLA is a team without a definite identity.
With nine games remaining in their regular season, there’s no telling how the Bruins will perform.
As puzzling as this team has been, here’s where it stands halfway through the Pac-12 season.
