The game didn't count, wasn't broadcast on television or radio, and wasn't witnessed in person by that many, either.
So the stakes for the UCLA basketball team were pretty low Tuesday night.
And the Bruins just barely lived up to the task.
The scoreboard total looked impressive, as UCLA won the exhibition game, 83-60, against Cal State San Marcos, an NAIA school.
But there wasn't much else that was impressive about the Bruins' performance.
Going in, UCLA planned to use the game, which carried just slightly more weight than a scrimmage, to work on its man-to-man defense.
"You can see our man defense … still has a lot of work to do," Coach Ben Howland said.
Playing in front of a markedly quiet 4,174 in Pauley Pavilion, the Cougars cut through the Bruins for easy baskets early on, pulling to within one point midway through the first half.
