Bruin Basketball Highlight Videos


In the spirit of basketball season approaching, and to get all you members of UCLA’s Bruin Nation ready for the hoops campaign, I’ve decided to go ahead and post a couple of highlight clips from last season.

This first link is of Reeves Nelson and Josh Smith, two big men who the Bruins will be heavily counting on, sinking three-pointers against Arizona in Pauley Pavilion:

The next link is a very special one: Tyler Trapani, the great grandson of the great coach John Wooden, who’s the last guy on the bench as he’s to UCLA basketball what Rudy is to Notre Dame football, made the last basket in Pauley Pavilion before the renovation, which was the perfect way for that building to go out before it was remade.

Here’s the link to that tremendous moment:

I hope the links work, and if they do, I hope everyone likes the clips.

And I hope they pump everyone up for the upcoming season.
