It's been a long week and Bruin fans have waited a long time for UCLA to finally get on the court in the very last tip-off of the first round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

Ike Anigbogu is out of tonight's game with a sprained left foot, according to a tweet from Ben Bolch of the LA Times.

The Golden Flashes finished the regular season at 22-13. They finished fourth in the Mid-American Conference East Division behind Akron, Ohio, and Buffalo. But Kent State is the 2017 Mid-American Conference champ after defeating rival Akron in the MAC Tournament Championship game. The Golden Flashes are 9-1 in their last ten games with the lone loss coming at home against Akron in their regular season finale.
