The basketball polls get it right

From the Diaries. GO BRUINS. -N

The poll results are in, and as expected, UCLA is now ranked number one in both basketball polls!

More exciting to me than the poll results, which are only what was obviously deserved, is this quote from the Los Angeles Times:

There was no chance, Howland said, that the Bruins would take any team lightly this season. Even though UCLA looked flat while leading UC Riverside only 26-16 at halftime, the coach said it isn't about the opposition but about the goals.

"Our guys want to win every game this year," he said. "They understand what's at stake. We have a chance to be No. 1 in both polls this week. That's great for our program."

...

Junior guard Arron Afflalo said it is realistic to consider having an undefeated season.

"I do feel, when you look at our schedule, that every game is winnable," Afflalo said. "So that's definitely something we can consider."


It's definitely been a good 48 hours for Bruins fans.  And while I don't expect it to happen, I'm glad to see that the basketball team seems to be striving for perfection.

With the team we have this year, and the recruiting class we have for next year, it feels like this will be a special time for Bruins basketball for quite some time to come.

GO BRUINS!
