That UCLA team that beat USU in 2001

Post by Aggie formerly in Hawaii » May 3rd, 2020, 11:02 am

Aggies lost to UCLA in their one second round appearance of most of our lifetimes. That was a loaded ucla team. Future Jazzman Earl Watson was on that team along with future NBA players Matt Barnes, Dan Gadzuric and Jason Kapono.

How does that team with 4 future NBA players stack up with other great teams we have played in the past 20 years? Kansas in 03 has to be on the list and is probably number 1. Who are some other teams?

How about the 2009 Marquette team that had 4 future NBA players in Wesley Mathews, Jimmy Butler, Lazar Hayward, Jerel McNeal.

The Kansas team was likely the most accomplished in terms of NBA success. Kirk Heinrich, Nick Collison, Keith Langford, Aaron Miles, Wayne Simien and Jeff Graves.

Looking back now that Jimmy Butler is a star in the NBA, it is crazy he only took one shot in that game. Lazar Hayward killed the Aggies. Aggies did a good job on Mathews.
