That was a surprise! Not only did UCLA get an NCAA bid, but they were seeded No.11. They face No. 6 SMU in Louisville on Thursday. Joe Lunardi and the other bracketologists were way off on several teams as the Committee favored the power conferences.
With the loss to Arizona, UCLA is still on the bubble -- the wrong side of it according to most bracketologists. We've got an hour of pins and needles coming up, and then the NIT announcement after that.
