Shaken to its core, UCLA must begin to rebuild

From Philadelphia — The hangover begins.

The UCLA basketball team awoke Saturday from three consecutive Final Fours with a throbbing headache, quaking dizziness and a stomach that wouldn’t stop leaping and pounding.
Call it Villa-nausea.
The hangover begins, and, man, it’s already a doozy, three years of March greatness morphed into 40 minutes of fetal position.
The Bruins weren’t just removed from the NCAA basketball tournament, their IDs were stolen, their resumes were shredded and they were tossed sideways into the alley as if they were UCLA Valley State.
