UCLA 2008-09 Season Preview
The Bruins fresh off a third consecutive trip to the Final Four start the year ranked No.4 in the AP preseason poll. The team returns three seniors and welcome five impact freshmen to the team this year.
Veterans Darren Collison, Josh Shipp, and Alfred Aboya give UCLA three seniors in the starting line-up, however, the team's fortunes this year may hinge on the development of the fabulous five incoming freshmen class of Jrue Holiday, Malcolm Lee, Jerime Anderson, Drew Gordon, and J'mison Morgan.
While Holiday, Lee, and Anderson help to fortify UCLA on the perimeter, with the departure of Kevin Love and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute the Bruins will need considerable contributions from both Gordon and Morgan inside the paint.
