Interview: UCLA’s Steve Alford on “Ball” movement, team gelling, and more


SACRAMENTO, CA – Third-seeded UCLA was practically almost able to score at will in their first round victory of Kent State on Friday.  But UCLA head coach Steve Alford knows that sixth-seeded Cincinnati presents a different test, as the Bruins will be challenged more on both ends of the floor, and the Bearcats will look to slow down UCLA’s preferred run-and-gun tempo.

Mike Montgomery caught up with Steve Alford ahead of the game.
