In the NCAA tournament, a lot of kids will be competing on the biggest stage of their lives and with that comes intense pressure to perform.
The UCLA Bruins faced off against St. Bonaventure in one of the NCAA tournament's first four games and the contest came down the bitter end.
Holiday was the Bruins' best player all night long, contributing a team-high 20 points, but as the game dwindled into the final moments, Holiday became unhinged.

It seemed like any confrontation from an opposing player on the court in the final minute unreasonably set him off.

In the end, it was in large part due to two offensive fouls on behalf of Holiday that sealed the Bruins' fate.
Holiday fouled out of the contest with just a few seconds remaining and the Bonnies earned the win, which will send them to the round of 64 to face off against Florida.
A bitter end to UCLA's season juxtaposed by pure glee in St. Bonaventure.
It is March, right?
