FINAL: Minnesota 83, UCLA 63

UCLA’s season — and perhaps Ben Howland’s tenure — ends in one of the ugliest efforts of the season. Plenty of stats to choose from here, but Minnesota’s 50.8% shooting to the Bruins’ 31.7% spells this one out fairly clearly. UCLA actually held a 42-36 advantage on the boards, with 19 offensive rebounds coming on all those misses.

    Cheaters never prosper.

      Sure they do. They just get wins and seasons vacated. You might know something about that, no?

      Uh, your entire AD is on probation, idiot. Go have another drink, and pray that you wake up tomorrow with a reason for existing.

      If that were the case, U$C would have no athletics program whatsoever.

    Oh thank God. Our long national nightmare is over.

      Hopefully. Unless Dan Guerrero is too wimpy.

    Without taking anything away from the positive things he’s done, this loyal Bruin Fan believes it’s time for UCLA to part ways with Coach Ben Howland. His stubborn approach, offensive ineptitude, and chronically under-performing teams are been painful to witness and have seriously eroded the UCLA Basketball brand. Ten years has been more than enough to give Howland a chance to correct his shortcomings and take the program to the next level, but he has utterly failed to deliver.

    Bring on football!! Howland is like Dorrel…gotta go and go now.

  • Mark

    Well, well, well. Everybody is seeing things my way now. I knew it would be just a matter of time.

  • Ted

    Thank You coach Ben Howland for 3 Final Fours…But with all due respect, at UCLA that is not good enough. You will always have a place in UCLA bball history. Let’s go hire somebody to bring back the glory.

    Thank you Ben Howland for the good years. You changed your ways with the evolving landscape of the college game, but alas this was not your forte. For this with vitriol towards him, shame on you. He is a good man.
