AA2 Makes It Official

Dohn reports that AA2 is officially coming back for his senior season:

After toying with the idea of playing overseas this season, UCLA center Alfred Aboya said Friday he will return for his senior season with the men's basketball team. [...]

 

Aboya will graduate with a degree in political science after taking two classes during the ongoing summer session. He filed the necessary paperwork to apply for graduate school at UCLA so he can maintain his eligibility while working toward a master's degree.

"As far as my knowledge, he's definitely planning on staying at UCLA," Bruins coach Ben Howland said. "He's finishing two classes he needed to officially graduate right now." [...]

 

"He's our most experienced player inside," Howland said. "I believe in Alfred, and I think he's going to have his best year at UCLA."

This is awesome news.

We get to enjoy one more year of one of the ultimate Ben Ball warriors. With AA2 in the fold we now will have a frontcourt featuring JK, AA2, JMM, DG, and ND. I have high hopes for JK given what he showed last year during the stretch (after LRMAM went down during the Pac-10 tourney) and AA2 will show the youngsters the kind of defensive intensity and relentlessness it takes to break into Howland's rotation as a Ben Ball warrior.

GO BRUINS.
