This win is a great testament to the great coach that Coach Howland is. The Bruins probably should not have had a chance in this game (after the USC debacle), but they hung tough and what do you know ... they won!!

Congrats and Go Bruins!!!

Agreed. This team is not as talented as those of years past, but what I like about them is that they don't know the meaning of quit.

What I like about Ben Howland teams is that, as a general rule, they win the ones they are supposed to win, and play tough those games that they are supposed to lose.(Admittedly lots of exceptions this year).

This was a big win for the Bruins, one we were "supposed to lose"

Any Howland team is like fine wine give it time and they will get better with age. I see talent with the kids they just need time.

It was a tough game but they hung in there, that's how every game should be played, giving your best win or lose, keep it up guys. go bruins.

U know what? Ben Howland should be ashamed for NOT starting, the HARDEST working, and the best guard on the team, let alone the most experienced. I really believe if this kid starts, Ucla wins more games, and struggles less. Coach, shame on you. Keep playing togh guys, Chace Stanback, Drew Gordon and Ryan Wright...WE MISS U GUYS BADLY!

If this is a learning experience, give everyone on the team an opportunity and they'll be ready at P10 tournament time. CBH is learning as well...
