NCAA Tournament 2018: UCLA vs St

In the second game of 2018 NCAA Tournament First Four action on Tuesday, March 13, the St. Bonaventure Bonnies knocked off the UCLA Bruins 65-58.

The victor will face No. 6 seed Florida on Thursday.

UCLA has overcome unlikely odds to land in the NCAA Tournament, but they'll have to take the longest road possible if they want to make it to the Final Four. The game was played in Dayton, Ohio.

The Bonnies did a good job keeping the ball placing fourth in overall turnovers in the Atlantic 10, that could be a problem for the Bruins if they don't force the Bonnies into mistakes they won't get a chance to turn those into points.

First Four UCLA vs St Bonaventure basketball game details are below. After slip-ups at the beginning of conference play, the team clearly showed that they turned a corner when they won 13 consecutive games in conference play.

"We couldn't be happier".

LIU Brooklyn (+4¹/₂) over Radford: The Blackbirds just pulled off an even tougher win than this, knocking off NEC regular-season champion Wagner - a defense-first team like Radford - in Staten Island, where the crowd was against them, and the Seahawks were undefeated all season. The Sun Devils really fell apart in Pac-12 play, but if they can get back to an early-season form that saw them beat both Kansas and Xavier, they're obviously really unsafe.

St. Bonaventure's at-large hopes were boosted by victories over Syracuse and Maryland.

John Hatching's isn't only a big fan of the Bonnies but he also has two daughters, one who attended the University and the other who's still now a student there and will be celebrating tonight if they win. At an average of 37.6 minutes per game, he's well-conditioned to do it and pour in the points, averaging a team-best 20.3 per game to go along with 5.8 assists.

The Bonnies are led by guards Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley, who combine to average over 38 points per game, with Adams shooting 45.7 percent from three-point range.

LIGHTING UP THE SCOREBOARD: The Bruins are second in the Pac-12 in scoring (81.9 points per game) and lead the conference in rebounding.
