UCLA at a glance: The Bruins had won five in a row before getting hammered Saturday at Arizona in the regular-season finale.

The disappointment and anger that hung in the air when they came back in the locker room Thursday night gave way by the time the arena had just about cleared out and the UCLA Bruins were again left to themselves. The clock on the back wall showed 1 a.m. as Sean Farnham, his eyes welling up, choked out the words: "I just feel like we let the school and the coaches down. Let all of Los Angeles down. And we let ourselves down, most importantly."

Whatever mercy the members of the NCAA pairings committee showed Sunday by not giving UCLA a first-round matchup with Jim Harrick and Rhode Island, a very real possibility that had half of Westwood cringing in fear, ended there. The Bruins were sent to Indianapolis to open the tournament. As a highly publicized team to play an underdog with little recognition. Against a team that will try to turn its offense into fullback-up-the-middle.

Doug Anderson, a high-flying forward from the University of Detroit Mercy, capped his college career on Thursday night by easily winning the dunk contest at McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta to begin Final Four weekend festivities. The 6-foot-6 senior from Kalamazoo, Mich., did nothing but impress, including a final 360-degree dunk in which he brought the ball between his legs and did a reverse windmill slam. Check out the video above to believe it. You'll also see Anderson do a double-pumping, two-handed reverse dunk, and leap above another player, grab the ball from his raised arm and slam it as his head rises above the rim. Four dunks, four perfect scores for Anderson, who many are saying could win the NBA dunk contest.

ONE episode from her radio reporting career that Kitty Felde couldn't shake was a tale of atrocity and remorse told by the Bosnian Serb Drazen Erdemovic. In 1996, the host of KPCC-FM's "Talk of the City" was in the Hague covering the U.N. war crimes tribunal trying cases from the Bosnian civil war. But after she saw Erdemovic sentenced to 10 years in prison for his part in the Srebrenica massacre, she felt she had to bring his story to her other longtime medium, the stage.
