Bonaventure Alumni gathers for NCAA tournament game

15 March 2018

In his first game back from a hamstring injury, Stockard carried the St. Bonaventure men's basketball team from start to finish, scoring 26 points in the team's 65-58 win over UCLA in the NCAA First Four. The UCLA Women's basketball team is heading to the NCAA Tournament and will have a big advantage in the first two rounds as they are not only a 3-seed, but will host the first two rounds at Pauley Pavilion.

Adams had no offensive success in the first 39 minutes of Tuesday's game, but when it mattered most the all-time leading scorer among St. Bonaventure guards drained the game-winning shot. The guy just picked the ball up, just laid it up...

After disappearing for the final 17 minutes of the first half, Holiday returned to the score sheet early and often in the second. "You know we've got great tradition at Bonaventure". They played extremely hard. And why not? It had been 48 years since anyone saw something like this out of St. Bonaventure. In 1970, Kalbaugh was the Bonnies' do-everything point guard, Lanier's running mate, roommate and best friend, the other cornerstone of that team that never got the title shot it craved. We've got to play really, really well to win, and our focus can't be on how far can we make it in the tournament or it's going to be short-lived. Adams is only sinking 25.8% of his shots from the floor and 31.6% of his attempts from downtown in the Bonnies' last two games. St. Bonaventure was highly successful with their zone defense against UCLA, forcing the Bruins into 20 turnovers. Not a shock that St. Bonaventure won the game, but surprising in one regard because the team's stellar backcourt of Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley combined to shoot just 6-for-28 from the field for 22 points. His second was an errant entry pass to Wilkes on the wing that airmailed the 6-foot-8 freshman by several feet.

Jose Mourinho tells Man United to forget about Liverpool FC
Asked whether he felt he had a squad good enough to make it a hat-trick of titles with United, he replied: "Not yet". This season, he has played 17 times but increasingly in the bigger games.

Florida ranks 44th in assists allowed per game (11.5) while St. Bonaventure ranks 148th (13.5). Despite a lengthy resume the Bruins prestige wasn't worth much this year, as they find themselves playing a play-in game for the right to join the final 64. They close gaps pretty quick. "To be able to outscore UCLA by 27 with the talent that they have, that's a credit to our guys".

But against long odds, the Bruins were only down 2 points with 40 seconds left. Bona is one of three schools still representing the mid-major, non-power Atlantic 10.

There's a lot of pressure on Florida, which has made the Elite Eight or beyond in each of the team's last five NCAA Tournament appearances.

Mourinho names the game that restored Man Utd's reputation
Mourinho said: "I've sat in this chair twice before, with Porto - Man Utd out, and with Real Madrid - Man Utd out". Paul Pogba is doubtful, and all signs indicate he will be a game-time decision.

The first was a drive into the paint where three Bonnies converged on him and stripped the ball.

But that said, I think that the positive occasionally that we can draw from that type of mentality is this team doesn't really get rattled, either.

Holiday fouled out following that last call and walked off the court. Hatching's thought they should have made it previous year, but he's excited for them to be in the tournament.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Details Leaked
As many suspected, Square Enix seems to have been waiting for the release of the new movie to announce the game. Warner Bros.' reboot of Tomb Raider should now be at the top of that conversation.
