Since the Madness of March officially starts tomorrow with the selection of teams going to the Dance, I did a little bit of scouting, catching parts of the UCLA-Stanford PAC-10 matchup. I was impressed with both teams but while I was watching Stanford looked in control.
I didn’t watch the entire game and later learned that UCLA pulled out a close victory. UCLA always finds a way to win, either by luck or by toughness. Should I pick them to go far this year? My main concerns for this team are the close calls, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute in a cast, Kevin Love’s back spasms, and the frightening look of Lorenzo Mata-Real.
