HEARTBREAK. i knew i spoke too soon about being happy and shit (see post below)!
we lost to memphis by 15 . . .
sniff, sniff, sniff.
from the ucla sports message boards because i couldn't say it better myself: "Some days you're the windshield. Some days you're the bug! We just didn't have the players to match up well with theirs [Memphis]. They ran and we ran after them. I guess defense can get you to the Final Four, but it's offense that gets another banner. Ben Howland is a great coach who got the most out of what he had. Our shooters, with the exception of Russell Westbrook, took the game off. Simply stated, we're good but Memphis is better. It's too bad that Darren Collison had to finish his college career by fouling out. I think he was frustrated by continually getting beaten by a much better (and bigger/taller) player.
When does football season start????"
but at least we got to the final four, which is more than i can say for u$c. and any day that we can beat $c in sports somehow, is a great day.
let's give up the eight clap for a valiant effort:
fight, fight, fight!
