Bruins on the World Stage, softball style

Three UCLA alums will suit up for the U.S. against Japan tonight in the championship game of the World Cup of Softball (6 p.m. PT, ESPN2).

Natasha Watley, Tairia Flowers and Andrea Duran all contributed to team USA's success -- the U.S. went 5-0 in pool play.

The Bruins' stats so far:
                   H-AB R RBI  HR
Watley (SS)  8-15  5   3   1
Flowers (1B) 5-11  3  11   2
Duran (3B)   2-10  1   1   0

Yes, that's 3/4 of team USA's infield.

This is the third year the World Cup has been played. Japan won the first one against the U.S., the U.S. won last year against Japan. Link to USA Softball release

And obviously, all three of these players had amazing success at UCLA, all playing on at least one NCAA championship team.
