Maya Brady and the UCLA Bruins are off to a hot start in 2023.

UCLA advanced to 11-0 Saturday with wins over No. 6 Florida State and No. 8 Virginia Tech in the Clearwater Invitational in Florida. Maya Brady had a 5-for-7 day at the plate, including her 5th home run of the season.

After the game, Brady joined ESPN’s “SportsCenter” for an interview. She discussed seeing the softball like a beach ball (or basketball) and how she originally fell in love with UCLA softball, among other topics. When host Neil Everett asked Brady to play “the favorite game,” she revealed her favorite foods and musical artists, but declined to choose a “favorite uncle” between Kevin Youkilis and Tom Brady.

Brady and the Bruins are back in action Sunday, taking on Louisiana. The game is airing on ESPNU.
