March Madness is underway. Sort of.
The NCAA Tournament kicks off Tuesday with First Four games in Dayton, Ohio. The second game of Tuesday’s doubleheader will feature UCLA and St. Bonaventure squaring off to decide who will be the No. 11 seed in the East Region.
The Bruins finished third in the Pac-12 thanks to the play of junior point guard Aaron Holliday and freshmen Jaylen Hands and Kris Wilkes. This marks the fourth time in five seasons that UCLA has gone to the tournament under Steve Alford, and they’ll look to make some noise in the East Region if they can get by the Bonnies.
St. Bonaventure is a gritty mid-major team that could be a dark horse Sweet 16 team if they get past the Bruins. The Bonnies beat Syracuse, Rhode Island and Maryland this season. They are led by the veteran backcourt of Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley.
The winner will face No. 6 seed Florida on Thursday.
