   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The 2010/11 NCAA Tournament, Part 3: Southeastern Region
2011-03-17

After last season's horror show (in purely relative terms), UCLA have bounced back slightly to make the tournament this season. This has been helped by a decent summer of additions, highlighted by McDonald's All-American Joshua Smith (who is pretty much the opposite of Josh Smith). Joshua Smith has probably had a few too many McDonalds All-Americans in his time, for he's about 50lbs overweight. The bulk has its advantage; the man can't be moved from the spot once he's got it, and rebounding position is as easy for Smith to obtain as a Macedonian passport is for any speedy mid-major American guard with a fine handle, looking for a lengthy European basketball career. Smith is also surprisingly effective in pick-and-roll situations, and can make some shots around the basket, although the considerable mobility issues make him a fairly hopeless defender. (Smith often comes off the bench for fellow freshman Anthony Stover, who averages less than 1 and 2 on the season - for some reason, UCLA aren't able to start playing their best players until Stover has committed a foul, at which point he can be subbed out for those who will impact the game. This seems like an unspoken ritual that they could do away with.)

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
