Let's Go!

Will this be the battle cry for the Bruins as we approach the end of the regular season, the Pac-10 tournament, and the ultimate goal of Madness? Throughout this season, the team seemed to go through periods of being tentative, just like Saturday against the Ducks. The Ducks had led for most of the game and had extended their lead to 11 points with 14 minutes left in the second half.

Collison completed an "And-1" three point play at the 13:28 mark to cut Oregon's lead to eight.

Russell Westbrook followed that up with a steal and drove the length of the court ending with an emphatic dunk, exhorting his teammates, "Let's Go!" As if to say, this is BS to be behind to the Ducks on our home court. Including that dunk, he accounted for 11 points during a period of about seven minutes, hitting a three, dishing out two assists and scoring another dunk to give the Bruins the lead at 54-53 with under six minutes left.

Russell's performance was all the more amazing, considering that a few minutes earlier, he rolled his ankle and appeared to be headed for the locker room.

Instead, he returned to lead this game-changing run.

During the run, Love showed off his ball handling, dribbling from just past halfcourt to the hoop for two points.

Collison extended the run with a three-pointer and the Bruins exerted full control of the game from there.

Love, who'd been having a sub-par game up to this point, just continued to grind it out. During the last four minutes, he grabbed four rebounds, dished out another long outlet pass to Collison for a dunk, sank 6-8 freethrows and sacrificed his body grabbing for boards and steals.

Collison's dribble drive to the hoop for a ten-point lead at one minute left allowed us all to exhale.

Here are the rest of the videos, followed by the interview with CRN.
