Love the hustle and performance stats. It only confirms why LoMata is my favorite Bruin. The dude takes the punishment and dishes it out too.

Very cool stats! Where did you get these and whose job is it to record how many times Mata dives for the ball?

The stats are provided by the UCLA Athletic department. The coaching staff has student managers tracking these numbers each game.
