UCLA 86 Stanford 81 (2OT)

Bruin Blue and Gold!

On one hand, anytime the team gets a win, especially a gutty come from behind win, you got to feel good for the team!

On the other hand, it is an indication of where the season is going when this win broke a five-game losing streak!

Coach Alford is on the hot seat. It was understood that he will need a few years to turn things around if all goes well, especially, in light of the NBA departures last year. However, I don't think people expected the team to have fared so poorly in some of the losses this season. Would a 0.500 record be about right for the Pac12 season?

I think they may have the talent to do a little better than that. The key is for the unit to pull together especially in close games in hostile road environments.
