UCLA starting 5=examples of players rising to the level of the tourney...

...Most teams don't rise to that level and they leave the tourney early (Illinois, Texas, Virginia and some other high seeds). UCLA, Oregon St and USC all rose to a level beyond what they played at during the regular season. Lower seeds beat higher seeds not always due to luck, but due to opportunity and taking advantage of the moment to be better than you've been. UCLA's starters were all 5 playing at a high level and it was fun to watch.

This is why March Madness is so special. It happens during the bowl season as well, but not as much as hoops.
