On Saturday, the UCLA women’s basketball team was not playing for a conference championship. It wasn’t playing for pride in a rivalry game. It would not earn anybody a ticket to the Big Dance.
These were the words from coach Cori Close to the UCLA women’s basketball team after practice on Wednesday: “We have to have a championship mentality. It’s one and done.”
On opening weekend, UCLA hosted Maryland, but despite their top-25 ranking and talented, experienced roster, the Bruins dropped two games out of three to the Terrapins.
For coach Cori Close, success or failure in the game of basketball comes down to a simple choice. Either you give everything needed to succeed, or you watch somebody else celebrate.
