UCLA’s Steve Alford on facing top-seeded Florida

03/27/2014

Steve AlfordMEMPHIS, TN – It’s hard to believe it was just a year ago that Steve Alford was climbing the Werner ladder at the Mountain West tournament to celebrate New Mexico’s tourney championship. Of course, the good feelings ended quickly as the Lobos were bounced by Harvard the following week in the NCAA tournament.

Fast forward a year and Alford cut down another net in Vegas, this time as the head coach of Pac-12 tournament champions UCLA. The difference comes in what happened next: the Bruins rolled past Tulsa and Stephen F. Austin to reach the Sweet 16, where they’ll face top-ranked Florida.

Will Perdue caught up with Alford ahead of the game with the Gators.
