Bruins deserved it

Kevin Love looked much better in the second half, but still not quite himself. However, he was good enough to continue his string of scoring in double figures in every game this year, the Bruins managed to beat Stanford fair and square. Collison really showed a lot. I'll be surprised if they don't go far into the NCAA tournament; in fact, I'm surprised -- well, maybe not, the eastern bias on netw0rk sports continues -- the commentators on TV didn't mention UCLA more often as a likely Final Four contendor -- or is it just assumed?

Anyway, I'm encouraged but still mildly worried by a tendency not to come out at their strongest at the beginning of a game. It's fine to have the experience of coming back, but I'm concerned that they might encounter a team in the tournament against whom they won't be able to come back.
