08:08 AM ET 02.14 | UCLA coach Ben Howland, thumbing through the pages of the stat book earlier this week, painted perhaps a rosier picture than the numbers suggest -- except for one. [Howland] was reminded of the one stat that has plagued the Bruins' conference run. "If we're going to have a chance to win this conference," Howland said, "we're not going to win it continuing on the path we're on from a rebounding standpoint." The Bruins are last in the conference in rebounding margin, but advanced statistics tell an even more damning tale. They're last in offensive rebounding percentage defense by a wide margin. "This is one of the poorest rebounding teams, if not the poorest rebounding team, I've had in my tenure," Howland said on the Pac-12 coaches call.
