    Man this UCLA team looks familiar. Almost like we had a similar coach.

    Turnovers UCLA. Bonnie’s fouled to line. 62-58 Bonnie’s with 27 seconds to go.

    Another turnover by Holiday. Bonnie’s ball, now 20 seconds left. Bonnie’s to line - 63-58.

    Another turnover by Holiday. Three turnovers in last 30 seconds. 12 seconds to go. Bonnie’s back to line - 65-58. 11.2 seconds - time out.


    UCLA IS OUT!!!!

    I do with the MWC refs called that offensive 'push off' like they just did against UCLA. Seems we were on the wrong end of that all season...particularly against USU in Logan.

    With the recruits coming in and the fact that UCLA would save around $3 million on the buy-out by waiting another year - doubtful Alford burns up this year.

    Agreed, but it will be pretty heated next year. They are going to want at least Elite 8 or else.

    Bonnie's looked good. Glanced at UCLA Message Board. They want him fired. Don't mess with happy.

    I tried the entire game to root for UCLA, being a western team, but my emotions kept pulling for the Bonnies. Then when the Bonnies had two atrocious blocking calls go against when they were text book charges on UCLA, I surrendered totally to become a Bonnies' fan. Still it was painful to see Holiday self-destruct at the end.

    That happens a lot with me....my head tells me to pull for one team...but heart just goes the other way. Same thing tonight. I usually pull for UCLA in the PAC....basically for me I want anyone but UofA to win in the PAC. But a small school vs. a P5 powerhouse......way to go Bonnies!

    Alford will not be fired. Should have been fired a few years ago. He will lose 4 players to the NBA this season as he has in every year since he has been there. He has the #1 recruiting class signed for next season. They willale the sweet sixteen and he will survive next year. He will lose 4 players to the NBA next year again and he will not make the NCAA tourney. Ses that the AD finds lots of excuses to not fire his biggest mistake.

    Interesting: Harvard never won an NCAA game until meeting up with Alford in 2013. St. Bonaventure hadn’t won an NCAA for 48 years until meeting up with Alford this year.

    By my count Alford is now 11-11 in the NCAA tournament.

    Elite 8 required at the bare minimum next year seems to be a safe bet. Depending on which players will remain and the 2019 recruiting class coming in - a final four or better may also be required. It will be his 6th year - facilities have been upgraded - thus, unlikely if a National Title isn’t foreseeable - he gets much more time.

    I think with his recruits that he continues. He has had some one and done, but less than a lot of schools. Can anyone who hasn't been reincarnated, ever meet the UCLA fans lust for glory?
