Sitting courtside for UCLA-Western Kentucky, I noted that a number of Western Kentucky fans and one overzealous member of the Hilltoppers radio network kept a vocal tally of how many timeouts the Bruins had remaining.

They were befuddled that UCLA coach Ben Howland kept using his timeouts after made baskets and became convinced that he was making a HUGE mistake. "He has only one more!" radio guy shouted in the second half, as if Howland and his staff didn't know what they were doing.

For clarification, and so Xavier fans don't succumb to this annoying temptation on Saturday, here is the skinny: Howland uses timeouts to set his defense and control tempo. He knows this might not leave him any to use late in the game, and frankly, he doesn't seem to care.
