WELCOME TO SAN ANTONIO: BRUINS ARE FINAL FOUR BOUND

Three in a row for Coach Ben Howland. The first to accomplish this feat since the legendary Coach Wooden. Speaking of Coach, he always said to "be at your best when your best is needed" and the Bruins did just that by putting Xavier on lockdown. The Musketeers were smothered for 25 minutes straight, and just when it looked like they were about to get their last desperate run in, the Bruins snuffed that out quickly and cruised to the end.

It will be very interesting to see the backtracking from all the haters who said that we were done. That will come in the next few days, but remember those that jumped off the bandwagon. Bruin Nation does not forget who said what about our guys, questioning their heart and desire.

But now is not the time to dwell on the negative. It is time to soak in this rare (and I do mean RARE) accomplishment. Celebrate with your fellow Bruins in this Postgame Thread.
