UCLA Basketball: North Carolina Game Thread -- Losers Bracket First Round in the Battle 4 Atlantis.

UCLA and North Carolina both lost their first round games in the B4A. Now two blue blood battle it out in the losers bracket. UCLA needs this win to build their resume for March because December is going to be ugly.

The 4-0 Bruins meet the #5 (3-1) North Carolina Tar Heels in the second round of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament. Tip-off is set for 4:00 PM PT. You can catch the game on AXS TV (available in the Los Angeles area on the following channels: AT&T U-verse (Ch. 1106), Charter (Ch. 794), DirecTV (Ch. 340), DISH (Ch. 167), and Verizon FIOS (Ch. 569)). Southern California Time Warner subscribers are screwed.  Dan Shulman, Jay Bilas and Andy Katz will be calling the game. Though the official site has not radio links, try on Tunein Radio or 570 AM. Follow along with live stats.

Both teams lost their first round games. This was an expected match-up for me -- I just thought it would be in the winner's bracket. North Carolina goes deep and UCLA doesn't. Will that be the story of the game or will Kevon Looney carry the Bruins on his back to victory?

Good luck to Bruin Football vs. Stanford tomorrow!
