The Night Is Upon Us
One hour and 20 minutes 'til tip in Indy. A contemplative moment for UCLA's Arron Afflalo.
Outside, around 7:30 p.m., security guards await the rush of fans.
Florida Ave., running right into the RCA Dome.
Fans, discuss the game here while it unfolds. I'll hit you back after midnight ...
UPDATE: UCLA just distributed a press release courtside that reads:
UCLA legendary head coach John Wooden was admitted to a Los Angeles-area hospital on Sunday, April 2. Wooden's hospitalization is not considered serious, and he is scheduled to be released in the next day or two.
Coach Wooden will watch tonight's game in his hospital room with his family.
Its Halftime right now, and my gators are up by 11... I'd like to say im feelin' pretty confident right now... but crazier stuff has happened before in college basketball... speaking of crazy... Joakim Noah broke the NCAA Title Game record for blocks in a game (the record was 4, he has 5), AT HALFTIME!!
Even more impressive is the Gators are up by 20 as I'm typing this. Where's that monstrous D the Bruins were said to have? Where's the close game everyone predicted? Oh wait, they keep underestimating the Gators.
