The Bruins will continue their spirited March run into the second weekend.
Next year will be better. I can feel it.
Who's the Cinderella team now? I thought it might be ACU, but they just couldn't get their shots to fall. UCLA's tough defense showed up again, and (unlike Texas) they were very deliberate and patient on offense and achieved the blowout victory. They've exceeded my expectations this season after regressing and ending the season poorly and then getting lucky to be one of the last 4 teams invited to the Big Dance. Despite losing Smith and Hill, they seem to have found a way to stay competitive and win. Congrats to Coach Cronin and the Bruins for reaching the Sweet 16 when hardly anybody get them a shot.
Alabama dismantling Maryland right now. They’re a scary good shooting team
Sadly Colorado got creamed tonight.
Our “friends” down the street are putting the wood to Kansas and the overrated Big 12. Looks like 4 PAC-12 teams in the final 16, double that of any other conference (ACC and SEC have two each; all others with one).
This is easily Cronin's biggest game in his short tenor thus far at UCLA. I'm praying to the basketball gods that the Bruins play well and advance. Go Bruins!
Cronin went off on the G league today with comments that were far more pointed than ones he made earlier in the week. I didn’t know that Nix was offered $300k to play for them. Wow. I also wonder why he’s speaking out this week. Maybe G League is trying to poach another UCLA commit?
