Now that UCLA has officially received its bid to the 2013 NCAA tournament, it’s business time.
As a No. 6 seed without sharpshooting freshman guard Jordan Adams, the Bruins have their work cut out for them if they are to win the program’s 12th championship and first since 1995.
This is a tournament that demands perfection, precision and determination, and it will be unforgiving to UCLA if it proves to be the inconsistent team that it was for the majority of the regular season.
Nevertheless, the Bruins, led by senior point guard Larry Drew II, have the talent to make a deep run in the tournament this year.
With Adams out, the odds are against this team to go all the way, but there’s still a small chance it could happen with some big breaks.
Here’s what UCLA has to do in the NCAA tournament in order to align itself for a national championship.
