Prediction: UCLA’s Pac-12 Tournament title certainly bumped the Bruins up a few seed lines, but that doesn’t mean that they were rewarded with an easy second round matchup. Tulsa, which began the year with six losses in its first seven games, finished the season with 11 straight victories. The Golden Hurricane, led by stud sophomore guard James Woodard, is a team that has gotten better and better as the year has gone on. We’ll still take UCLA based on their offensive prowess, but don’t be shocked if Tulsa is hanging around down the stretch.
