With no UCLA hoops tonight, we still have a Bruin to root for. Ryan Stoffers came from behind to win his semifinal, and now he'll be in the finals tonight and tomorrow, with a shot at becoming the second Bruin in three years to win the event. His opponents are from Minnesota and Washington U. of St. Louis, three Ivy candidates haveing fallen by the wayside.
Ryan won despite the fact that one of his opponents, from Missouri, characterized by a Alex Trebek as a groupie because Cameron Crowe is her role model, was able to run a category on rock band names, including a daily double. Ryan came back with a tougher daily double and then was the only contestant to get the Final Jeopardy question. (A quote including "in harm's way" was the answer; the correct question was "John Paul Jones.")
So good luck again to Ryan, and Go Bruins! Win one for the Fox!
