Found March 16, 2013 on College Spun:
Though UCLA won its big matchup last night against Arizona, the Bruins came away with some terrible news. On the final play of the game, guard Jordan Adams did his best to contest a potential game-tying shot from Wildcats forward Solomon Hill as the clock ticked toward zero. Unfortunately, Adams came down awkwardly and wound up breaking his foot. After the announcement was made, Bruins guard Larry Drew couldn’t hold back the tears during his postgame interview. Drew stayed positive, however, speaking about the team’s character and ability to overcome adversity. The Bruins will take on Oregon for the Pac-12 Championship tonight at 11 p.m. EST.
