Coach Cal called it like he saw it in his postgame comments.
“They beat our brains in,” he said of UCLA’s 87-77 win over his previously unbeaten Wildcats.
“We are what we are. We weren’t very good today.”
Of course, Cal couldn’t move on without reminding everyone this was UCLA’s Super Bowl. He expected to the Bruins to play out of their minds tonight, just as every team does when it gets a shot at Kentucky.
UCLA’s Thomas Welsh and his 21 points and 11 rebounds are pretty good example of getting up for the Kentucky game.
“That’s just how it is,” said Cal.
