That's the word coming into mind while going through the news clips today over last night's gut wrenching 63-61 win over Washington State. DC was the late game hero going coast to coast in lightning quick drive that would have made a certain no. 11 proud. AA had another huge game and Jordan fought through the pain. Freshmen were key again (more on Roll below). Of course another game and another injury. This time it's Zo Mata (after getting a broken nose in the last game) suffering a hyper extended knee from a collision with Jordan:
Mata had an MRI exam late Thursday night, and the results will be revealed today.
"He has tree-trunk legs," UCLA Coach Ben Howland said. "If anybody can bang knees, but avoid a serious injury, it's Lorenzo."
UCLA's execution in the first half was a thing of beauty," Bennett said. "Their screens, their cuts, their timing was perfect.
He has really improved his defense, Howland said of Roll "he works really hard on his defense at practices and it's so great for a coach to see a player develop and improve like he has".
Huge win last night, and I know this is starting to sound boring - but another huge game this weekend against pre-season favorite Washington Huskies. We still have Aaron, Aaron, DC, and Prince Luc. I still think any other program would have folded by now if they had the kind of injuries ravaging our roster. But we are hanging in there and we are playing like warriors. It gives me hope for this Saturday. GO BRUINS.
