UCLA-Stanford: Bruins Take it to Overtime

John LewisSenior Writer IMarch 7, 2008

The UCLA Bruins fought back to force over against the Stanford Cardinals with the PAC-10 Championship on the line.

Fighting hard against the two Stanford 7-foot brothers, the Bruins needed an extra five minutes to win the regular season championship.

But before they could force overtime, the Bruins were down by two points when the refs blew the whistle on a controversial foul call against Lawrence Hill. UCLA then tied the game.

Many thought that it was a clean block, but the Bruins dominated overtime by outscoring the Cardinals 14-4. Brook Lopez and Mitch Johnson scored Stanford's only baskets and Anthony Goods committed an intentional foul.

The Bruins were held to a season-low 18 points in the first half, when they shot 7-of-22 from the floor. They staggered through a 5 1/2-minute scoreless stretch when the Lopez twins either altered UCLA's shots or the Bruins hurt themselves with turnovers.

Then Love, Westbrook and Collison took over and propelled the Bruins into overtime.
