Although this was the first time Wilkes ever watched the selection show, it was the last time Thomas Welsh got to take in selection Sunday as a Bruin. UCLA now ranks 44th with 112.8 points per 100 possessions and St. Bonaventure is 47th (112.7).

The Bruins have won eight of their past 12 games. The victor between the 11 seeds advances to play sixth-seeded Florida in the East Region Friday.

"This team has been through a lot", Alford said in an apparent reference to the shoplifting arrests of freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley in China before the season opener, their indefinite suspensions, Ball's withdrawal from school and the decision to have Hill and Riley remain suspended for the remainder of the season. The Sun Devils really fell apart in Pac-12 play, but if they can get back to an early-season form that saw them beat both Kansas and Xavier, they're obviously really unsafe.

Prominent St. Bonaventure alumni include Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian, SiriusXM Radio CEO James Meyer and former CBS and NBC correspondent Victoria Corderi.

"On" Selection Monday" as it was dubbed, it was finally revealed where the Bruins would be seeded, where and when they will play and who they will face.

UCLA (21-11), which has advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the 49th time in school history, will be making its 11th appearance in the national tournament in the last 14 seasons. "It's a demanding stretch for our guys".

Led by Aaron Holiday, the Bruins have one of the best offenses in the country, but they struggle with consistency, and have another uninterested defense, which Atlantic 10 co-player of the year Jaylen Adams should tear apart.
