Mountain West Conference Tournament 2018 Printable Bracket

UCLA and USC get Pac-12 tournament bye but that's not necessarily a good thing Bruins coach Steve Alford says

UW split the regular-season series with OSU and beat the Trojans 88-81 at Galen Center on December 29. While the Rams were once considered to be a threat to earn a really good seed, another bad loss could put them in jeopardy of being a double-digit seed with a tough first-round opponent. And finally, freshman D'Shawn Schwartz played an integral part of the Buffs' second-half surge with a pair of 3-pointers. They were able to be aggressive, got them to the line 32-18, and that was the difference in the game. It was a really poor offensive performance for us. And also, when you drove inside, what was the thought for going for two as opposed to kicking out and going for three?

Crisp got the ball on the break once again, made a shot fake, and then hit a double-clutch layup with a defender draped all over him to give Washington the lead back. I just think we've matured and now we know what we're capable of. It's a fast game, it's a physical game.

"The last two plays, I just tried to do as much as I can on the defensive end", Wooten said. It was an aggressive play. "When he hit that three, I'm like, 'OK, we've got this thing in the bag.' It's not going to be easy, we had to finish it out". Beating Oregon State will do little to move the needle. They also had an outstanding six players in double-figures.

The conference tournament is the last chance to add to its résumé, a position that has become commonplace. They also won in the second round of the A-10 tournament on a buzzer-beater previous year. The loss epitomized the season for USC: The Trojans had control of the game and should have won it, but could not close the deal.

"That's what that run past year gave us was the confidence of knowing, hey, we're pretty good".

His selection as both player of the year and freshman of the year is the first in the conference since Kevin Love accomplished the feat for UCLA in 2007-08. It just is what it is. They bought into a system. "You've got to take it as a lesson from God and learn from it".

New coaching staff, new system, there is a lot going on. "Proud of the guys for the way they hung together".

Matic lets rip to clinch late victory for Man United over Palace
Man United produced a stunning comeback to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 on the Monday Night Football and they saved the best for last. Relegation-threatened Palace remain third bottom - a point from safety - having failed to win for the sixth successive game.

On the other side of that dilemma, UCLA, who was the superior team a year ago anyways, got to sit back and relax in extra day in Vegas.

On several occasions this year, Alford has bemoaned stretches when his team wasn't focused on defense and let the opposing team go on prolonged runs. "I'm happy that we found a way to win on a night that we obviously were struggling". What does it take on a day-to-day basis?

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Oregon State had a penchant for finding ways to lose instead of win for most of the regular season.

Foul trouble and foul shooting will be another key in this matchup. "I had a brief conversation with our doc, but he's got no choice, he's got to play tomorrow". We've come back, we've made plays. "We're very confident with this game coming up tomorrow".

Former UCLA men's basketball star and current Cleveland Cavaliers all-star forward Kevin Love opens up about his panic attack and mental health in this article he pens for The Players' Tribune.

Washington (20-11) is now sitting on the outside of all major NCAA tournament projections and needs 2-3 wins to seriously vie for one of the 36 at-large berths doled out by the NCAA Selection Committee.
