On CBS today at 11 am with Doug "I am still bitter UCLA did not recruit me" Gottlieb doing color commentary, UCLA plays at Howland's PAC 12 nemesis UW. Romar is the opposite of Howland, a terrible coach who many rec coaches could do a better job teaching basketball. But Romar is a motivator, he gets his team's up for big games, they won't be emotionally dead or not ready to play like Howland's Bruins against WSU.
Another strange key may be Travis Wear. Travis is not David, despite being a twin. He is going to start today, apparently Howland's solution to the WSU problems. But is Travis really healthy enough to go?
What this game means for standings (I think). UCLA wins it can split the conference championship with Oregon as a 2 seed in the PAC 12 (Probably bad for UCLA if it faces Cal in the second round). If Oregon loses to Utah (seems unlikely)and UCLA wins they have the one seed. If UCLA loses, the only sure thing is UCLA is guaranteed a first round bye in the PAC 12 Tournament.
Bye Ben. Stay Kyle and GO BRUINS!
