That source said on Saturday that Stockard might well have played against the Wildcats had Bona felt it absolutely needed a win to secure its place in the NCAA Tournament. The other reason is obviously the Bruins official invite to the tournament.

The Bruins open the tournament in Dayton on Tuesday at the bottom of the bracket looking up, an unexpected development for a team that started the season with an global controversy and ended it with another spot in the tournament - albeit one of the least desirable.

First Four game: No. 11 UCLA (21-11) vs.

How they make a run: Adams takes his game to another level as he cements his status as one of the most unsafe guards in the nation, and Mobley plays a ideal second fiddle as St. Bonaventure makes the Sweet 16.

St. Bonaventure has made the NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in program history and twice under Schmidt. St. Bonaventure won Atlantic 10 regular season and back are back in the field for the first time since 2012 and seventh all time.

St. Bonaventure's at-large hopes were boosted by victories over Syracuse and Maryland.

Junior Aaron Holiday has averaged 39.3 minutes per game over the past 10 contests while tallying in 23.3 points, 6.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game.

BOTTOM LINE: UCLA makes its 49th tournament appearance but its debut in the First Four. The Bruins have two non conference losses, both to tournament teams - Cincinnati and MI. "And now we're in the NCAA Tournament, and that's a very good accomplishment".

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 has a little more experience, and a little more talent.

The Saint Louis native is questionable for the Bonnies' NCAA Tournament game with UCLA tonight inside UD Arena, coach Mark Schmidt acknowledged Monday, but more signs seem to point to him playing.

The tired Bruins didn't practice Saturday after returning from Las Vegas and didn't take the court Sunday, either.

This also means that if the Bruins want to get back to the Sweet Sixteen, they will have to win three-consecutive games in one week.
