UCLA Set to Face St. Bonaventure in Battle of the 11-Seeds

UCLA Bruins head coach Steve Alford and forward Kris Wilkes

How they make a run: Adams takes his game to another level as he cements his status as one of the most unsafe guards in the nation, and Mobley plays a flawless second fiddle as St. Bonaventure makes the Sweet 16. After all, the Bruins have been to 18 Final Fours. They were surprised to see their draw in the selection show Sunday night, which left them with only a few hours to arrange a cross-country flight. Things are different now and UCLA has to get ready for March Madness.

UCLA did not practice Saturday or Sunday, and Alford said the team would probably leave for OH onMonday morning.

The Bruins had an early and worldwide role in college basketball's season of scandals. LiAngelo Ball also was suspended and withdrew from school.

"Four months ago we're sitting in China and not knowing what's going on and what's happening", Alford said. The victor gets a date with No. 6 seed Florida.

The women's basketball team, seeded 14th in the Kansas City Region, will play 3rd-seeded UCLA in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.in Los Angeles.

DID YOU KNOW: Florida, which awaits the victor of the play-in game, has beaten UCLA three times in the NCAA Tournament since 2006. He averages 12.9 points, third on a team that has little depth.

FAMILIAR ARENA: LIU Brooklyn Coach Derek Kellogg was sacked by MA last season after losing to St. Bonaventure in the A-10 tournament.

Despite losing key players to injury or suspension, federal indictments and missing the NCAA tournament has marred coach Andy Enfield and the Trojans season. Coach Mark Schmidt said Monday that it'll be a game-time decision.

Wilkes had to sit through TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech before learning his team had punched a ticket to the NCAA Tournament. The Bonnies lost their opening game in their last three NCAA Tournament appearances in 1978, 2000 and 2012.

The key player for the Bruins will be Aaron Holiday the Pac-12 leading scorer at 20.8 ppg and second in assists with 5.8 apg. The Bonnies are familiar with the arena and hoping for support from Flyers fans.

It gets even more daunting if the Bruins win. "I think one of the advantages, if we have an advantage, is that we played here a number of times".
