Arguably the best of the play-in games, this should be a good one between UCLA and St. bonaventure. Don't sleep on the Bonnies because they're a small school — they beat a pair of tournament teams already this year (Syracuse and Rhode Island) and have a great backcourt. UCLA has great talent as well, with Aaron Holiday leading the way and freshman Jaylen Hands an exciting playmaker.
I like the upset in this win — take St. Bonaventure to move on to the first round.
