For UCLA, it's 'Nova and out
#1 Mar 22, 2009
The only players with consistent energy were Aboya, Keefe, Gordon, and Lee. 1 starter and 3 from the bench who clearly saw 'Nova laying the wood on any Bruin going to the basket. Why weren't the soft Bruins returning the favor to 'Nova players. I 'm a Bruin fan in the Northeast and their soft, matador defense was an embarassment !!!
Ben Howland should've shaken things up a bit when they got down. I can't believe you don't throw in a zone or something else....anything else but the D they were playing. "We don't play zone" ??? Your pigeon-holing your options Ben.
Great careers for the 3 seniors!

Agreed about the zone comment. If they have not played it all year, this game probably would not be a good time to test it out. They should have practiced it a bit throughout the year to be ready for an opponent like this. Still, next year they will be good. Solid program, solid players, but the conference play is tough. Expect USC to bounce back next year with a better regular season.
