Last weekend saw the Bruins close out the regular season with a series at Oregon, losing 2 of the 3 games in Eugene. UCLA finished the season with a 33-17 record, 9-12 in the Pac-10 and enters the NCAA Tournament unseeded. This week, the team travels to Florida to participate in the Gainesville regional. The Bruins will play Jacksonville on Friday afternoon, and one of Florida/Bethune-Cookman on Saturday. The regional championship game - and a berth in the Super Regional is on Sunday morning.
