Having the only NCAA Tournament experience on the team, Anderson and Lee have become the defacto grandfathers in the room, doling out advice on the entire March Madness experience.
Lee played 19 total minutes as a freshman in the Bruins’ win over Virginia Commonwealth and loss to Villanova in 2008-09; Anderson played 13.
“I remember that it was a really physical game, a game you have to go out there and take,” Anderson said of his first tournament game. “No one’s going to give it to you. That’s the main thing I want to tell these guys, that we have to come out and play hard and play physical. We have to establish ourselves inside, establish the physicality of the game. I don’t think some of the guys understand how physical the game will be (today).”
