Women’s: UCLA made it to yesterday’s Pac-12 Tournament championship game, but Stanford was just too tough to handle. Even with Wooden Award candidate Michaela Onyenwere (pronounced OWN-YEN-WAY-DAY) leading UCLA with 30 points, they still fell 75–55 to the top-seeded Cardinal. Way to fight though.

  • Despite the loss, the Bruins are still headed for March Madness. Put your dancing shoes on!

Men’s: Unfortunately, it wasn’t a winning weekend for the Bruins. For the second straight year, USC beat UCLA at the buzzer in a thrilling regular season finale on Saturday. Tahj Eaddy, take a bow.

  • Next up for both squads: postseason. Second-seeded USC and fourth-seeded UCLA both received byes to Thursday’s Pac-12 Tournament quarter-finals. Let’s show ’em what LA’s all about.
