The Bruins will open the NCAA Tournament in Portland.
I like our chances against Baylor. If we get there…
Let’s get focused and play our game. Tough D will be required.
Ucla got screwed seeding-wise. Should’ve got TX Tech’s spot in SD and if the selection committee wanted to keep TX tech as a 3 seed, then Wisconsin should’ve been dropped to a 4 seed (or even lower imo).
That said, ucla should breeze through Akron for a tough but winnable Round of 32 game. Not loving Baylor at the Sweet 16 level, but I don’t think they’re too thrilled abt the possibility of ucla in the sweet 16 either.
Any team can beat (or get beaten) by anybody during March Madness, so hope to see some upsets that will be favorable for the Bruins. Like last season's 11-seeded team, UCLA just needs to find a way to win and survive, one game at a time. Their toughness and postseason experience from last year's Final Four run will certainly help. Go Bruins!
Let's go Bruins! Tonight at 6:50 PDT!
Also, saw that Cronin got a 6-year extension. Last year's FF appearance is really paying off: https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/33526579/ucla-bruins-sign-men-basketball-coach-mick-cronin-6-year-deal-2027-28-season
