In episode 204 of ‘What’s Bruin Show’, we discuss the power of the non-revenue sports and chat about the rumors in regards to a certain coach that was said to be involved with the UCLA basketball head coaching search.

In this episode, hosts Jake Merrifield, Bill Shirley and I chat with good friend of the show, Jamaal Artis about a great many things surrounding UCLA. Though we had a very thought-provoking talk about the UCLA basketball head coaching search, we also had a lot to say about the Bruins’ non-revenue sports.

We start the show by discussing the Bruins’ bats. UCLA softball took a break from Pac-12 play to host four non-conference foes and got four wins out of it. Additionally, the Bruins were not only ranked #1 in the nation, but it was by a unanimous vote. UCLA baseball was also able to stay at the top of the rankings as they swept Arizona in dominating fashion.

UCLA gymnastics also had a weekend of epic proportions as they cleaned up in the Pac-12 Championship to claim their second consecutive conference title. In addition to that, Katelyn Ohashi won Pac-12 Specialist of the Year, Kyla Ross won Pac-12 Gymnast of the Year and Valerie Kondos Field won Pac-12 Coach of the Year. But wait, we have more!

Over the weekend, the UCLA basketball women’s team started their journey through the NCAA Tournament. On Saturday they beat #11 Tennessee and followed it up with a win over #3 Maryland to advance to the Sweet 16. Though she is far from done, head coach Cori Close has already cemented her legacy.

But what about the other UCLA basketball team? Well since the men are not participating in the big dance, the only thing we have to talk about is the coaching search, which took an interesting turn last week when a certain coach emerged as a candidate.

We then have a chat about the comments former coach Steve Alford made about the coaching search and what he believes needs to be done in Westwood.
