UCLA Crash Out of NCAA Tournament

The Bruins are done for the season.

Despite riding an eight-game unbeaten streak dating back to Oct. 12, UCLA (10-5-6) lost 1-0 to Cal Poly (11-5-6) Friday night in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Cal Poly faces UC Irvine Tuesday.

“I’m heartbroken,” said Maxwell Griffin, one of four seniors playing in his final college game. “This was my last time playing in a UCLA shirt. I can’t believe it. It just wasn’t our night. We weren’t keeping possession like we used to, and we didn’t match up with them for the duration of the game.”

Palos Verdes Estates’ Kyle Nakazawa was not in the UCLA lineup.
