While the UCLA Bruins’ season hit an early end with a First Four loss to St. Bonaventure in the NCAA Tournament, hopes are still high for Steve Alford and Co.
Sporting News ranked UCLA at No. 18 in its Way Too Early Top 25 for 2018-19.

From Sporting News:
On one hand, the Bruins have an elite incoming recruiting class — one 5-star, four 4-star players — but on the other hand, UCLA barely made the tournament this year with a superstar in Aaron Holiday, and he’s gone to the NBA. Seniors Thomas Welsh and Gyorgy Goloman are departing, too.
UCLA finished 21-12 this season.
