Ben Howland, Other UCLA Leaders Respond To Sports Illustrated Report

The powers that be in Westwood have offered the following responses to the scandalous special report on the UCLA basketball program released by Sports Illustrated Wednesday morning.

From Chancellor Gene Block:

“It is disheartening for our Bruin community to be confronted with the type of assertions contained in the Sports Illustrated story. We take seriously any challenge to who we are and what we are about, and I am confident that any issues in our men’s basketball program will be rectified.”

From Director of Athletics Dan Guerrero:

“I have discussed the Sports Illustrated story with Coach Howland and Chancellor Block and we will continue to address any issues and concerns. Like many in the Bruin family, I am disappointed. That said, I know that we have, and will continue to provide, the necessary resources, education and support for all of our coaches, staff and student-athletes.”

From Head Men’s Basketball Coach Ben Howland:

“Like everyone else, I am always looking forward to improving as both a person and as a coach. I am proud of the coaches, staff and student-athletes in our program, and I look forward to our future.”

Quick summary: we’ve read it, we’re not happy about it and we’re not sure what we’re going to do.
