Bonnies take down UCLA 65-58 to advance in NCAA Tournament

NCAA Tournament First: UCLA starting in Dayton vs Bonnies

The victor will face either No. 6 Iowa or No. 11 Creighton in the second round on Monday in Pauley Pavilion.

The Bruins have faced St. Bonaventure twice in the history of the two programs, with UCLA winning both meetings (once at home, once at a neutral site). He's played every minute of five of UCLA's last six games, including an overtime loss to Arizona in the Pac-12 semifinals. With a 25-7 (14-4) record on the season, St. Bonaventure deserved better than a play-in game. UCLA opens this game at -3 over the Bonnies on Tuesday. The Bonnies have reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012 and they have an excellent pair of guards in Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley. He was one of the top scorers in the Atlantic Ten with almost 20 points per game. The 6-1 junior is also a strong distributor, ranking second in the conference with 5.8 assists per game.

FAMILIAR ARENA: St. Bonaventure played at UD Arena on January 3 and lost 82-72. If they win, they'll play Florida (6) as the 11 seed.

Mourinho savages 'worst manager' De Boer
His comments about Frank De Boer being the worst manager in Premier League history were straight out of the top drawer. He plays for United many matches, he starts some comes from the bench for others.

Although this was the first time Wilkes ever watched the selection show, it was the last time Thomas Welsh got to take in selection Sunday as a Bruin. At 7-feet tall, Welsh owns a size advantage over Ikpeze and an edge in experience, having played fairly deep into the NCAA Tournament in the past and returning for one final time as a senior. He got the Blackbirds to the NCAA Tournament in his first season and will be playing in an arena that was a regular A-10 stop during his nine seasons with UMass. Despite a lengthy resume the Bruins prestige wasn't worth much this year, as they find themselves playing a play-in game for the right to join the final 64.

It's pretty simplistic to say that if the Bruins rebound they will win. This could be the matchup that tilts the game in favor of the Bruins, if Holiday doesn't do it himself. UCLA has a little more experience, and a little more talent.

The Bonnies have lost their only two games against UCLA, in 1973 and '74 but say they are emboldened by facing a school that has produced National Basketball Association greats Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton, among many others. While Jaylen Adams is good, Aaron Holiday is another level good, and will be tough for the Bonnies to defend in this game.
