UCLA, Vanderbilt Are the Teams to Beat
OMAHA, Neb. — Pac-12 champion UCLA won each of its series for the first time in program history, didn’t lose a midweek game and ended the regular season on a 10-game winning streak.
The Bruins (47-8) were rewarded for their remarkable consistency Monday with the No. 1 national seed in the NCAA Tournament.
“We have a terrific conference. We believe it’s the No. 1 conference in the country from top to bottom,” UCLA coach John Savage said. “The competitiveness they were challenged with all season, we stepped up, and we definitely feel we’re prepared for the next part of the season.”
