Highest paid college basketball coaches, guess where Alford sits

10th highest in the country. Thanks Dan Guerrero. Not only do we get a mediocre product on the floor, we're paying top dollar for it. How much are you making again for doing absolutely nothing useful for UCLA?

Excellent interview from Arron Afflalo, praises Howland

Great interview with Arron Afflalo, he mentions that Howland emphasizes instilled toughness and defense into their mentality, a trait that NBA teams love.

Best wishes to Kyle, who has done a phenomenal job encouraging recruits to come to UCLA. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

Shabazz Muhammad wins Mr. Basketball USA

4

Last time that UCLA had a high school player that was voted Mr. Basketball USA was over 40 years ago: Lew Alcindor, better known as Kareem Abdul Jabbar. He would also lead us to an NCAA championship after joining UCLA, maybe Shabazz can do that for us too? One of my favorite bits from the article: "Muhammad's basketball journey began well before he reached high school. He was a not-so-athletic sixth-grader battling Tourette syndrome. It was at AAU Nationals that year when he first laid eyes on a tough guard from New Jersey who inspired him to step up his game." "I just wasn't that good in sixth grade," Muhammad said. "When I saw Kyle Anderson play for the first time, I wished I was that good. He is so skilled and can do a lot of things with the ball in his hands. If he would have won [Mr. Basketball USA honors], I would have been happy for him. That's one of my best friends." Cynics (realists?) will say Shabazz committed to Adidas, others could say Kyle Anderson may have been the best recruiting factor for UCLA yet.

Kyle Anderson and Shabazz Muhammad are recruiting hard for Tony Parker to come to us While it won't address the more glaring issue (no point guards), it will deal with when Josh Smith leaves at the end of next season.

Anthony Stover to have surgery to repair left shoulder

In all the recruiting excitement, barely anyone mentioned this (I think I saw one comment about it). Here's hoping a speedy recovery for Stover, and that he's as pumped up about next season as his new teammates are.

3 Former UCLA Bruins to be inducted into Hall of Fame

You're the best Reggie. Wish we had another player like you in this generation. Reggie is joined by Olympian Don Barksdale and four-time NBA champion, Jamaal Wilkes, as 3 former UCLA players to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

UCLA Computer Science Professor Judea Pearl wins ACM Turing Award

2

Much of the public world only sees UCLA as the birthplace of the internet, but one can argue that some of the foundations of artificial intelligence were also started here. Professor Judea Pearl was awarded the ACM Turing Award (like a Nobel Prize for Computer Science) this year for his achievements in the field of AI. I know we're not getting a lot of good news these days so it's great to see any academic accomplishments like this from time to time.

Malcolm Lee playing his first NBA minutes tonight

It took a torn ACL to Ricky Rubio to shorten the depth at the guard position for the Timberwolves, but for better or for worse, Malcolm Lee is now in the game.

Kyle Anderson still has high hopes and recruiting for us

2

"[Anderson] says he talks to 6-6 small forward Shabazz Muhammad, the No. 1 player int the Class of 2012, and 6-9 forward Tony Parker nearly on a daily basis." I hope he's making it through to them..

Malcolm Lee praised after NBA preseason game

2

While most believe Malcolm Lee should have stayed for his senior year, we have to let such events pass. He's gone whether we like it or not, so we can only hope for his success in the NBA because it will only further reinforce that Howland is an elite coach who prepares his student-athletes to play at the next level. One major quote from assistant coach Terry Porter: "There's a lot of guards from that generation that (UCLA coach) Ben Howland, he's turned into great players. … The one quality they all have, they're tough as nails. They compete, and they get after it defensively."

Will Tony Parker be the next to commit to Howland's stellar 2012 recruiting class? I took a screenshot of some twitter communication between Kyle Anderson and Tony Parker. The top has the most recent post, so from the bottom, you can see Parker enjoyed his official visit to UCLA. Anderson asks him if he'll join him at UCLA and Parker replies yes! Ok so this is only twitter, not anything official, but I've been so down about UCLA football that I'm looking for any good news I can in hoops. Amusingly enough, if this works out, we will have a Kyle to replace Jerime and Tony to replace De'End as the Anderson and Parker of our team.

Kyle Anderson wants Tony Parker at UCLA

Kyle Anderson verbally committed to us and he is definitely communicating with other 2012 hoops prospects. In this case, via twitter. I like his enthusiasm and how he wants to reach out to other guys!

Tony Parker, 2012 hoops recruit, considers UCLA one of his top choices to play college ball. We are the very first school he mentions in the interview and I'm always excited when UCLA is the first one that comes to their mind. He also mentions wanting to play ball with Kyle Anderson and Shabazz Muhammad. I am hoping for a really monstrous recruiting class.

UNLV going viral in trying to get Shabazz, what should we be doing?

5

Some UNLV fan put together a (fake) video of Shabazz wearing a UNLV jersey, in an attempt to convince the 2012 recruit to sign with UNLV. What can we do, as fans, to make a similar appeal to him? I once remember reading about an Arizona recruit that attended one of their football games and was impressed with the support of the crowd (if I can find the link I'll add it to the post), so I really wonder if we are doing all we can as fans to make an impact.

2012 PG, Dominic Artis, expects to decide before his senior season

10

UCLA has made the offer, Artis has expressed his pleasure in receiving, and he expects to pick his school before the next academic high school year begins. I know I've been posting a few bits about LJ Rose, but he's local to Texas so I feel our chances are slimmer with him. Artis may be the better option. His size and height (5"11, 165 lbs) reminds me of the once unheralded Darren Collison, though I doubt he's as fast as our beloved DC.
