Tonight the 4th seeded Bruins will take on the 13th seeded Tulsa at 6:55 in San Diego. It has been a long time since our team came home with a banner, but these Bruins have the talent to go a long way, and maybe, just maybe, the whole way.
The winner of tonight's game will go on to meet the winner of the VCU/Stephen F. Austen game on Sunday. UCLA should win tonight, move through the game against VCU/Stephen F. Austin on Sunday, and be in the Steve 16 next weekend, presumably giving UCLA one more chance to defeat the gators. But "the longest journey begins with a single step" and tonight we must focus on that first step.
In 1994 our Bruins had a difficult time with Tulsa, so to change the mojo I thought it would be good to relive 1995, the last time UCLA Basketball brought home a banner! That was an amazing year and this should get you excited heading into tonight's game:
I don't know about you, but this really gets to me. Toby, Tyus, the O'Bannons. Wow! What a time. If you like, you can watch the whole game here and 1995 Final Four highlights here (start at about 1:13).
But that long journey is just beginning and it is time for this year's Bruins to shine!
