I suppose I have to say something about my team, who got worked over in the second around of the tournament. I’ve said something about them the past couple of years when they’ve performed well. It would make me a band wagon fan to not speak up for the Bruins.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say the loss wasn’t disappointing. If you’re a true fan every loss is disappointing. It wasn’t surprising though. UCLA is not the team it has been for the previous two years. With Aboya being the only real active big man for them and having to playing in the Eastern Division, they were sitting ducks.
The tournament is still absolutely exciting even with my team already eliminated. This year North Carolina has shown itself to be the favorite but not by much. Nobody is so absolutely dominant and I’m expecting more upsets.
Even beyond the tournament I am looking forward to UCLA’s basketball future. I am hoping Holiday will stay for at least another year. We have some good power forwards committed to our program. If our guards can be aggressive and shoot well from the outside, we have an exciting future ahead of us even we can’t snag a big man.
