UCLA defeats Alabama in overtime thriller to reach NCAA tournament Elite Eight

The runaway finish was preceded by some crazy momentum swings, a back-and-forth battle that none of the breathless fans wanted to end.

UCLA has this game! No, wait, Alabama isn’t going away!

In overtime, there was no doubt. It was all Bruins.

The evidence could be seen in a flurry of consecutive points and heard high in the Hinkle Fieldhouse stands from fans yelling four letters not heard this deep into March in more than a decade.


The Bruins are back in a big way on college basketball’s biggest stage.
