It's not that easy to blog when you have guests for the weekend, but finally . . .
Needless to say, I'm pretty ecstatic that UCLA is back in the Final Four. Now Florida again. It's really pretty remarkable that both Florida and UCLA got to the Final Four again -- and almost too bad that they won't be able to play for the championship. So Saturday is key.
I may just be hoping and letting my prejudices guide my hopes, but it does seem to me that UCLA has been pretty tough in the tournament, giving them a decent chance to win it. A number of teams have had to come back from behind to win games this time around. But so far, UCLA has not relinquished a lead. Sometimes they've won ugly, as against Pitt, but they've managed to win one way or another. I was gratified at how nicely they handled Kansas, which I had feared was the class of the group. Now I hope I was right, and that Florida and whoever will seem easy by comparison.
