Muhammad did not miss that much time, but Adams still started off his college hoops career by scoring 20 or more points in four straight games. The competition was not the greatest in the world during that stretch, but UCLA did play Georgetown, who ended up being one of the best teams in the Big East.
With Muhammad no longer on the team, Adams should be the go-to guy. He did score 15.3 points per game last season.
There are plenty of great players that will challenge for the scoring title in the Pac-12, but Adams could very well be the best scorer in the conference. That could have been the case last season if Muhammad wasn’t on the team. However, they were a great scoring duo regardless.
UCLA will enter the season with high expectations once again and it will be interesting to see if it can meet those expectations with a new head coach. Whether the case, some great players will be back on the Bruins and Adams is definitely one of the better ones.
The Bruins will have to work as a team if it plans on winning a Pac-12 title, but Adams very well could lead the conference in scoring regardless. So although Arizona will likely enter the season as the team to beat in the conference, there is so much to look forward to if you are a fan of the UCLA Bruins.
