Only @ UCLA: Honesty from a Head Coach

he deserved a T. He was taunting the kid...

-CBH (as per Dohn)

So AA2 actually deserved the T.  I thought at the time that AA2 got in that guy's face in a pretty abrupt way, so I wasn't too surprised when they T'ed him up especially after the way he acted in reaction to the ref.  However, the point I wish to make here isn't that AA2 deserved the technical or that he's a bad guy (because I firmly know him to be of outstanding character through his body of work) but that our coach has the integrity to tell the truth about the matter.

Did Coach Howland have to say anything about the matter?  Probably not.  Did he?  Yes, and he told us what happened.  He didn't try to make up some BS excuse like "coaches" at other schools.  I'm pretty sure that at some point since the game CBH had a firm talk with AA2 to figure out what exactly happened and then took corrective action, providing guidance.  That is the sign of a great coach and program, well in keeping with the tenets of the great Wooden.
