With the Bruins trailing 59-57, UCLA sophomore guard Bryce Alford, son of head coach Steve Alford, hoisted a three-point shot. SMU center Yanick Moreira tipped the ball while it appeared to still be above the cylinder of the basket and was called for goaltending, giving UCLA a one-point lead.
SMU was unable to answer on the other end of the floor. Nic Moore missed a pair of three-pointers and the Mustangs were eliminated.
