Happy (about) returns:  Carin’ about Aaron’s, and more calm with Tom’s — The Bruins better be good with the return of Holiday and Welsh, or elsh!

UCLA Basketball was facing the potential loss of FIVE different players who all would have been STARS this upcoming season, but on Tuesday, two of those five decided to withdraw from the NBA Draft and return for another year in Westwood.

After losing Lonzo Ball, T.J. Leaf, and Ike Anigbogu — all one-and-dones — to the Pro Draft, it was essential that Steve Alford retain the other two NBA Hopefuls, and luckily for the Bruins, that’s what happened.  Aaron Holiday and Thomas Welsh have officially announced that they are coming back to UCLA for another season.

With those two probable All-Conference honorees, along with a stellar incoming class of Freshmen, the Bruins appear on paper to be talented and deep, and legitimate contenders for the Pac-12 title.  Arizona is even more stacked, and u$c gets all their starters back from last season, but UCLA is now expected to be right there with them both, battling for supremacy, and for a deep run in the NCAA Tournament.

To celebrate the excellent and relieving news about Holiday and Welsh, here are 40 more photos from the UCLA Dance Team Auditions from earlier this month.  These are from photos #801-#900.  There are still 200+ more to pull from, to celebrate the next good Bruin news that comes along.
