Reflection on the Season so far

The 2013 Bruin Basketball Season has been the epitome of a roller coaster type season. We've had our highs (Arizona 2x, Mizzou, Washington 2x). We've had our lows (WSU, USC, ASU). And we've had times when the car fell off the freaking track (Cal Poly, Josh Smith). However, like most roller coasters, we generally feel more energized or emotionally higher afterwards than we did before. I guess you could say that's how I feel. Before we go calling for Howland's head immediately, let's take a look at some possibly overlooked observations (both good and not so good) about the season as a whole.

Of all the PAC-12 teams we played twice, we didn't get swept by any of them.

We had zero empty weekends, meaning that every 2 game weekend we had, we managed to either sweep or split.

Kyle Anderson was our leading rebounder. I'm looking at you Wear Twins.

We haven't been near as desperate as some of the other Blue Bloods (Kentucky and UNC)

After being ranked in the 50s coming out of high school, Jordan Adams has proven to be a diamond in the rough.

The Women's Team is seeded higher than the Men's Team in Bracketology. Not to take anything away from Coach Close and her squad. They have had a good year, but this is almost a complete reversal of preseason rankings.

Where would we be without Shabazz?

Larry Drew II was the right fit at point guard. Gotta love that Assist to Turnover ratio.

My high school team could beat Cal Poly.

We're still a lock for the dance and we won the Pac-12 (or Pathetic 12, whatever) outright. No ties, tiebreakers, or crazy math formulas.

I hope you guys take these observations to heart and reflect on your experience during the season. If you want, feel free to make some additions in the comments.
