Bona is one of the anchors of the Bruins defense this season, leading the team in blocked shots with 1.7 per game. He has been dealing with a shoulder injury, and UCLA head coach Mick Cronin said he was feeling “sore” following the Round of 32 victory over Northwestern.
Bona, a true freshman and Pac-12 All-Defense selection, played 20 minutes against Northwestern as the Bruins beat the Wildcats 68-63 to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. Tip-off between UCLA and Gonzaga is coming up at 10:04 p.m. ET on CBS.
