Not sure if I will have time to watch tomorrow night's game but I hope Magic is happy at the end of it. I consider him an honorary Bruin. GO BRUINS.
GHM Risky Business Coaches (via GuitarHeroGames) For all of you out there who, like me, checked out of the NCAA Tournament soon after the Vols and their bracket did, you may have missed this. I know I did.
The major story of the game last night was the blatant cheap shot by Morgan State F Ameer Ali. Blake Griffin was standing with his arms straight up and Ameer Ali grabbed his arms and launched him over his head. Blake could have been seriously injured and was very close to landing directly on his head. Dennis Dodd was blogging the event and had some interesting "behind the scenes" reactions from Morgan State players. Interesting reaction from around the sports world. Some of it might be included in a future notebook.
The hate continues on WWL as Joe Lunardi picks UCLA to lose in first round. He does it with a little smirk while wearing a Trojan tie. (HT HERTZYM) GO BRUINS.
CBS-5 Interview with Mike Montgomery: A real indepth interview with Monty, where he talks about the team's ups and downs, Jerome Randle, our slow starts, living and dying by the 3. Very revealing and insightful. Also click here to see CBS's interview with the men's players (Randle, Robertson, Christopher and Wilkes) after hearing about their seeding. Click here for Joanne Boyle and the women's thoughts on their tournament as well, and Walker and Hampton talk about their final time dancing.
UCLA legend Ed O'Bannon's 30 points and 17 rebounds in the Bruins' win over Arkansas in the 1995 National Championship Game. DC may have struggled of late, but just like was the case with Ed O, I want DC to have the ball. Win or lose, I want the ball in his hands.
Here is an intro to Eric Maynor of VCU. I am sure JH and ML will get to know him really well over next few days through all the game tapes Howland and his staff have on the Rams. GO BRUINS.
Josh Shipp, Alfred Aboya and Darren Collison reflect on their UCLA experiences (via the Daily Bruin). GO BRUINS.
