Bracket projection: UCLA

Coach Steve Alford and his UCLA Bruins emerged from the early season shoplifting controversy in China that cost the team three players and more Ball family drama to make their fourth NCAA tournament appearance in five years. This wasn't Alford's best team, but it might have been his best coaching job.
