2018 NCAA tournament preview: No. 11 St. Bonaventure

The 11th-seeded UCLA Bruins lost to fellow No. 11 seed St. Bonaventure 65-58 in the First Four opening round of the NCAA MEn's Basketball Tournament.

UCLA and St. Bonaventure are battling for the No. 11 seed in the East Region, which would mean a Thursday night first-round game against No. 6 Florida Gators in Dallas.

St Bonaventure is back in the tournament for the first time since 2012. The Bruins have been in bigger games, and have the best player on the court.

BOTTOM LINE: UCLA makes its 49th tournament appearance but its debut in the First Four. Crosstown rival USC played in one last season, beating Providence and then defeating Southern Methodist in the first round before losing to Baylor in the second round.

The Bruins have won eight of their past 12 games.

Zayn Malik and his supermodel girlfriend Gigi Hadid have gone their separate ways after more than two years together. Hadid took to Twitter first, stating "I am grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared".

"We couldn't be happier".

With the win, the Bonnies secure the 11th seed in the East Region and advance to the NCAA Tournament round of 64. "Since we're playing in an Atlantic-10 arena, we know that we'll have a lot of fan support, not just from the Bonnies, but from the Dayton people".

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. Carl averaged 13.7 points per game and 11.7 rebounds per game in AU's three PL Tournament victories. They have one of the better offenses in the country, and with Aaron Holiday running the show at point guard, they have a player who can take over any game.

St. Bonaventure, in the meantime, had its double-digit winning streak snapped by Davidson in an Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament semifinal clash on Saturday.

But if the Bruins get the Aaron Holiday who went 5 of 20 from the floor and 3 of 12 from the three in an overtime loss to Arizona in the PAC-12 tournament, then the Bruins March will end early.

The Bruins are second in the Pac-12 in scoring at 81.9 points per game and lead the conference in rebounding (38.8 per game, including 28.5 defensive rebounds per game) and 3-point field goal percentage (38.3).
