GU handled the Bruins for roughly 36 minutes but stumbled before the finish line. UCLA took advantage and pulled off a stunning comeback victory. I visited with a few of the men involved in that memorable contest, including ex-Zag Adam Morrison, who was gracious with his time and seems to have a better perspective than some folks out there.

Here's my article on that memorable '06 contest.
