Shabazz Muhammad is one of the best offensive players in the country, but his defense still needs work.

"In high school, I never worried about playing defense at all, to be honest," said Muhammad. "So it was all new to me. It's still not natural. I have to think about it all the time, about staying in my stance, all of the little things you have to do."

UCLA has improved as the season has progressed on the defensive end.

The Bruins currently ranked 23rd in scoring offense and 232nd in scoring defense.
