A giant HT to trojan killing greek guy for making this connection.
So by now everyone has read this comment following the Utah game, which I think will be one of the defining quotes of Dorrel’s failed tenure at UCLA (emphasis added throughout):
Did you get that?
Given the chance to prepare and adjust, Howland nearly cut Memphis' offensive production in half. Granted, some of it had to do with the Tigers missing shots they normally made, but casting the dismal effort as nothing more than "one of those days" would be naive. Simply put, Howland coached his ass off, and that was the biggest factor that contributed to UCLA avenging an earlier loss to advance to the Final Four. The guy is really good. Really, really good.
One guy coaches his ass off, the other sleeps his ass off.
