UCLA Ends Season with Frustration
Do not go gentle into that good night.Rage, rage against the dying of the light. -- Dylan ThomasWhile that Dylan Thomas poem is about death, it seemed applicable to the way UCLA fans probably felt about how the 2009-2010 season ended Friday when UCLA lost to Cal in the semi-final of the conference tournament, 85-72. Bruin fans, after watching the game, almost assuredly didn't go "gentle into that good night" when leaving the Staples Center, but were probably bitching as they walked out to their cars, enraged by how UCLA lost this game. The Bruins led for the entire first half and then lost the game in the first 6 minutes of the second half. And everyone in the building knew why.Mike Roll, UCLA's MVP of the season, had 16 points in the first half and was spectacular in the first 20 minutes. Cal Coach Mike Montgomery came out in the second half and had his defense attempt to clamp down on Roll, denying him the ball and any decent looks. It worked well, at least for the next 10 minutes...
