"I was thankful to have the opportunity to be playing in March", he said. The UCLA victory was almost inevitable, and that is evident by the 97-80 final score.

Ball reportedly bruised his right hip but was back on the floor in the second half, though limping a bit and rubbing his hip. He doesn't appear to have sustained any major injury, but it is worth monitoring in UCLA's next game. Ball finished with 15 points, but was mostly quiet after a hot start. According to a UCLA spokesperson, the freshman is still day-to-day.

The single-season assist record for a Pac-12 freshman was not enough. -14 matchup on Friday, the Ducks passed that test with no problems.

UCLA shot 60.6 percent for the half while holding Kent State to just 37.5 percent.

The rest of the Ducks have filled the Boucher void simply by stepping up their defensive intensity and taking advantage of their athleticism. The Bruins made 12 consecutive shots as the lead ballooned to 24 with less than three minutes left. He found his offense in a variety of ways, first drilling a mid-range jumper and a 3-pointer before adding an alley-oop and a nifty and-one layup. "(I am) thankful and happy to play on Sunday".

The Trojans won two games in three days to make it to the second round. They led the entirety of the game, held Kansas State to 38.9% shooting while shooting 62.8% themselves. USC then upset No. 6 seed SMU in a 66-65 thriller on Friday. He was limping after the fall, but stayed in the game and was in the starting lineup in the second half. He didn't, and Goloman fed Holiday, who converted for a 10-point lead that could have been six.

Frontline tandem Chimezie Metu and Bennie Boatwright each scored 14 against SMU, and were the standouts against Providence. Jacob Evans is averaging 13.7 points and 2.6 assists while Kyle Washington is averaging 13.1 points and 6.9 rebounds.

The three-seeded UCLA Bruins are entering this March Madness with higher expectations than we have seen in quite some time.

Despite Les' experience and past success as a lower seed against the Jayhawks, the tired Aggies began to fade midway through the first half against a rested Kansas team. The Fighting Hawks were patiently picked apart in half-court sets, and helplessly outrun in transition. And they earned themselves a ticket into the big dance as a result.
