Center Court: UCLA Basketball (v. Arizona) Open Thread

Loading Scores

Here we go. Not much else to say at this point. Ben Howland's Bruins (13-17, 8-10) star a "new season" this afternoon when they face No. 4 Arizona (16-14, 10-8) in the quarterfinals of the 2010 Pacific Life Pac-10 Tournament.  The game will be televised live on FSN and is scheduled for a 12:10 p.m. (PT) tip-off.

UCLA's only chance of getting into the Big Dance is winning the Pac-10 tournament. Well we have never won it as the 5 seed. We won it in 2008, 2006 and in 1987, all three times as the No. 1 seed. Bruins  are 2-1 all-time against Arizona in the Pac-10 Tournament, winning the last meeting 71-59 over the Wildcats in the semifinals on Mar. 10, 2006. That was a different time when UCLA basketball was actually about "defense," effort, hustle and tenacity for entire 40 minutes.

You can read up on all of our musings leading up to this game here. If you want to follow the game online you can do so via our official site. Don McLean is going to be in the broadcasting booth so that should be fun. As always, we will be here in the game threads with our rapid fire takes and commentary. So let's get this game thread started. Fire away.

GO BRUINS.
