GREENVILLE, N.C. -- That Memphis-UCLA Final Four showdown should be exciting. But then again, maybe not.
I mean, you remember the last time these schools played, don't you? It was in the Elite Eight of the 2006 NCAA tournament, and Ben Howland used the opportunity to paraylyze John Calipari's dribble-drive motion offense in a game that was painful to watch.
Both teams were terrible offensively.
Or, as Howland would put it, terrific defensively.
Either way, the result was a 50-45 UCLA victory, and you really need to take a look at the box score to understand what took place. Here's the link. One highlight: UCLA won despite recording just four field goals in the second half. Another hightlight: Memphis shot 11.8 percent from 3-point range.
