Bootleg Video: UCLA Post-Game

After Saturday's 75-54 whipping by UCLA, there was a somber mood throughout Maples Pavilion. Stanford's seniors suffered their most embarrassing loss of the season on their Senior Day, sending a dejected and disgusted Chris Hernandez to the press room for interviews. A disappointed Dan Grunfeld joined him. See the seniors' reaction to their performance, plus the commentary by head coach Trent Johnson.

The biggest competitors crash the hardest after a difficult loss, and Hernandez was clearly disgusted after Stanford's worst home loss since he was a fourth grader.  He and Grunfeld both were unafraid to admit that they were outplayed by UCLA in every aspect of the game.  Their head coach took a different tact, deflecting criticism of his players and instead lavishing praise on the athletes and coaching of the Bruins squad that he cannot help but admire.  Johnson also closed with comments on where Stanford goes from here, as they start the post-season.  His players have an "eye opening" off-court activity today that ought to ensure they do not feel sorry for themselves.
