Don’t look now, but the UCLA Bruins are on a roll since firing Steve Alford.

UCLA won their third game in a row since Alford’s firing, beating Oregon 87-84 in overtime on Thursday night in Eugene. What’s most impressive is the fashion in which they did it.

UCLA was down 65-48 with under 7 minutes to go, and they were down 72-62 with 1:40 left. Despite the big deficits with little time left, they still rallied to tie the game and then win it in the extra period.

After the game, junior guard Prince Ali exclaimed that UCLA committed “highway robbery” with the comeback win.

The Bruins certainly stole that one.

Ali was 7/10 in the game, including 4/7 on threes for 22 points to lead the Bruins. He scored four points in overtime.

Despite their non-conference woes, the Bruins have the talent to compete for the Pac-12 title in the weakened conference this season.

Powerful UCLA boosters want Rick Pitino as coach, report says.
"They're going after Pitino, that's their No. 1 choice," a source told Forbes of two UCLA boosters looking for Steve Alford's replacement.
