ELITE Eight-bound (Postgame Thread)

For the second straight season, Ben Howland and the Bruins are one of the last eight teams standing. It wasn't quite the thriller we had against Gonzaga last year, but this one is probably better for the collective health of the Bruin faithful.

Despite another subpar shooting game from AA (3-11), this time he found his way inside, getting fouled and leading the Bruins at the stripe (10-10). With 8 players getting into the scoring column, this was a true team win, and it was great to see our bigs really pressure Gray into many bad decisions over the course of the game.

Also of note was the emergence, or should I say re-emergence of Josh Shipp, showing the touch from the Cal debacle, chipping in with 16 points including 3 3 pointers.

On a personal note, this Bruin has a final tomorrow and I'm a little pressed for time here, so the floor is yours. I'd like to thank our team for making finals studying just a little more bearable.
