(11) UCLA Advances to the Sweet 16

Ethan Miller/Getty Images(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) -- When the Selection Committee announced that UCLA would be making the NCAA Tournament as an 11 seed, many questioned the selection. Fast forward a week, and the Bruins are going to the Sweet 16.

On Saturday afternoon, UCLA took down (14) UAB, 92-75.

"The selection committee thought we were good enough to play in this tournament, and I think we proved it," forward Tony Parker said.

Parker led all scorers with 28 points and 12 rebounds while forward Kevin Looney scored 10 points and pulled down 11 rebounds.

"There's no better time to do that than March," UCLA coach Steve Alford said.

UAB just couldn't stop the Bruins offense as they allowed UCLA to shoot 60.3% from the floor, and 55.6% from the three-point line.

UCLA has a tough task ahead of them if they to advance to the Elite 8. Next up they'll take on number 2 seed Gonzaga.

Hundley Goes Down But Neuheisal Steps Up to Lead (12) UCLA to Win

Hundley Goes Down But Neuheisal Steps Up to Lead (12) UCLA to Win

Football Texture/iStock Photo(ARLINGTON, Texas) --When star quarterback Brett Hundley left the game in the first quarter with a injured left elbow it was easy to think UCLA was in trouble. But backup Jerry Neuheisal put all doubts to rest by completing 23 of 30 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns, including the eventual game-winner with three minutes to play, as the No. 12 Bruins nip Texas 20-17 Saturday.

With UCLA down by four with just over three minutes to play, Neuheisal, who is the son of former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisal, completed a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Payton to seal the win.

"My first thought was excitement for Jerry Neuheisel. This kid is everything that's right about college football and about UCLA," UCLA head coach Jim Mora said. "I just thought, `Wow. You couldn't write a better script than this right here. His dad was a great player here. For him to come to Texas and bringing his team from behind to get a win. It's incredible. It's awesome."

Tyrone Swoopes completed 24 of 34 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns for Texas (1-2).

Paul Perkins rushed for 126 yards to help UCLA improve to 3-0 as it heads into conference play.
