NCAA Tourney GameThread: UCLA vs. Minnesota, 6.45p

What could be Shabazz Muhammad's last collegiate game tips off tonight, with Ben Howland's team undermanned due to departures (including one obese player who never lived up to potential--listen up, Juan Urine!) and a late-season broken foot of Jordan Adams, the Bruins' second-leading scorer. Only six deep (not including freshman Tony Parker), we'll see if the Bruins can successfully play Whac-A-Mole against the Golden Gophers.

All three other Pac-25 teams won, by the way; two of them were twelve seeds upsetting five seeds. No pressure, Bruins!

Dusty Baker said...

Sax, you're making me do the Googles, man.

Looks like this one is on TRUTV (Huh?!?) at 7:20.

Dusty Baker said...

Both teams 0-9 shooting to start the game. Nice!

Dusty Baker said...

TRU dat.

Dusty Baker said...

12-9 with just over 10 left in the first. Yuck.

Dusty Baker said...

UCLA defying the law of averages with all these misses.

Dusty Baker said...

First FG by a Bruin starter just now! #suckage

Dusty Baker said...

32-year-old Shabazz Mohammed is 0-6 thus far.

No such thing as bad press, eh lad?

Dusty Baker said...

33-19 MIN with 4:25 remaining

Announcer just said shot selection not good for UCLA. It's not that, it's the actual shots that aren't good for UCLA.

(takes shots)

Dusty Baker said...

35-25 at the half to MIN.

@Sax

I like how you referred to "Juan Urine" in the post for this thread. We could take it a step farther and call him "Johnny Urine."

Steve Sax said...

Speaking of Urine, the Bruins have a horrible stench tonight. It's like they ate asparagus for lunch.

Steve Sax said...

there goes shabazz. And Ben howland.

Dusty Baker said...

I heard it mentioned that Howland had been at UCLA ten years. Holy spit, time flies! I would have lost heavy money betting that he'd only been here maybe 5-6 years.
