The nation, for some reason, needed to see this. UCLA has had enough black eyes this season, though that has nothing to do with the shiner forward Reeves Nelson is sporting. The Bruins have been kicked around by the Big West Conference, with losses to Long Beach State and Cal State Fullerton, and beaten up by USC. But those were regional missteps. What made a 97-68 loss to Washington at Bank of America Arena on Saturday night even more painful was that it went out to a country that is used to associating "UCLA" with "quality basketball."

Coaches sell their idea on how to win all the time. If players believe, they buy. If not, they move on. When USC hired Kevin O'Neill last June as its basketball coach, his pitch was clear: "We're going to be a great defensive team," he said. Not "try to be." Not "strive to be." But "going to be," as if no other option existed. "He demands it," USC guard Mike Gerrity said. "And if you want to play, you're going to buy into the system. If you're not playing defense, you're not going to be on the floor."

Mike Gerrity hit a clutch jumper with 15.2 seconds left to put USC up 65-61. Following a timeout, two Washington players missed desperation shots, and Dwight Lewis grabbed a key rebound and secured the 67-64 win with two free throws. For USC (16-9 overall, 8-5 in Pacific 10 Conference)
