I believe this is also cap-penalty free, but the particulars aren't known.
The Bruins get by the Cardinal, 68-60, and don't play well, getting the advantage mostly because Stanford is a bad team that can't shoot...
The Bruins beat the under-mannned Bears, 79-65, and did it with a new intensity on defense. But, as a BRO message board poster expressed, there is a strange ambivalence to UCLA hoops...
