Steve Alford didn't wait for the end of TBS' two-hour selection show to get going.

"Hopefully we can have him play", the 11th-year coach said.

By Monday morning, they would board a plane to Dayton, Ohio. Someone else would have to arrange the travel plans.

UCLA (21-11) faces St. Bonaventure (25-7) in the second game Tuesday night at University of Dayton Arena. The victor will be the No. 11 seed in the East Region and face No. 6 Florida (20-12) on Thursday in Dallas.

"This would be the first time that we won't get booed", Schmidt said. "It's more basketball, and that's all I can really ask for". The Atlantic 10 regular-season victor has victories this season over Maryland, Syracuse and Rhode Island. The Bruins have been in bigger games, and have the best player on the court. "We were thinking we've got at least three days at home to practice and look at film and get ready". "I think if we go and take care of what we have to take care of, playing defense and getting the ball moving, we'll be alright". Kinneston also earned recognition as a First Team All-Patriot League selection, while junior forward Cecily Carl earned a spot on the All-Patriot League Second Team and senior guard Maria Liddane was named to the Third Team All-Patriot League and All-Defensive Team. Four came from the 2011 VCU team that danced into the Final Four. The Bruins have two non conference losses, both to tournament teams - Cincinnati and MI.

The Bruins open the tournament in Dayton on Tuesday at the bottom of the bracket looking up, an unexpected development for a team that started the season with an worldwide controversy and ended it with another spot in the tournament - albeit one of the least desirable.

He confirmed that Stockard is a game-time decision for the Bruins, but that the outlook was "more positive than negative". "You'll get rest tomorrow if you can get past this week".

Especially when Adams is off, Mobley has picked his game up this season, dropping 29 in the Bonnies' 83-77 victory against Richmond in the conference quarterfinals, a game in which Adams scored just five while battling foul trouble. He is the highest-scoring guard in school history with 1,893 points. St. Bonaventure comes into the game with a 25-7 record, coming off a loss in the Atlantic 10 tournament to Davidson.
