Given the total irrelevancy of UCLA Basketball this season, you can understand why Fox Sports would feel their viewership would be better served showing a women's basketball game between Central Florida and Memphis, and even worse, a Clippers game, over the marquee collegiate basketball program on the west coast. Due to that, I was personally unable to watch this team finally end their streak of futility outside of SoCal (box score).
Maybe through the power of hindsight, we can conclude that we should have had our home games somewhere in the state of Washington. Then maybe we'd get some kind of performance out of Joshua Smith, who again had a big impact in his home state with 19 points on 8-9 shooting before fouling out.
From the comments, I can safely deduce that we actually played zone, and the score tells me that we finally won a game outside of Southern California in our 23rd game of the season.
After that, I won't be making any statements on how the team played, because unlike Howlers, who seem to have no problem spouting off on topics like our coaching and the condition of the program, despite not actually watching our games this season, I feel the need to do so in order to have an informed, accurate, and fact-based opinion.
So I'll leave it to you who were fortunate (or unfortunate, depending on how you look at it) enough to see this game to do a review here in this postgame thread.
Next up is the NorCal schools again at home.
