Strong Side: UCLA upholds upsetting tradition in Saturday’s loss

Rising senior point guard Jerime Anderson is the last of the "Fab Five" of the 2008 recruiting class, which was ranked No. 1 in the country. The recruiting class also included Drew Gordon, Jrue Holiday,  J'mison Morgan and Malcolm Lee.
