I know I have written post game posts with that title before, but I will keep using it. These kids are warriors. As A wrote below - what Howland is doing right now with these kids is truely amazing. With basically frosh. and sophs. we are freaking undefeated on the road this season. And we are doing it like a gritty, hard nosed Big-East basketball team with rebounding and a smothering, tenacious D:
UCLA hounded Oregon into shooting an iron-cracking 32.2 percent from the field, didn't allow the Ducks to grab a rebound in the final 4:36, and used a pair of steals by Jordan Farmar to break a late tie to lift the 17th-ranked Bruins to a 56-49 win Thursday in front of a sellout crowd at McArthur Court.
"During the game I was thinking, 'OK, we have to get it so we have experienced guys out there,' " Howland said. "Then I'm thinking to myself, 'You're a real moron. We have no experience.' I should be used to it by now."
Anyways - going back to our warriors - Ced made his return last night. Played 18 mins. And, he had an instant impact:
That's when Bozeman announced his return in emphatic fashion. Taking his first and only shot of the first half, he made a three-pointer from the corner.
Despite his lack of offense, Bozeman made his presence felt on defense.
