One year and 52 games didn't change a thing in NCAA softball. For the second straight year, UCLA faced Fresno State in the championship game, and once again, UCLA won. The Bruins' 1-0 victory gave UCLA its fifth NCAA softball championship--all since 1982. The Bruins previously won in 1982, 1984, 1985 and 1988. As was the scenario last year, UCLA entered the final day of the double-elimination tournament with a 4-0 record and in need of just one win for the title, while Fresno had a 3-1 mark and needed two wins.
