From the Big Lead:
College basketball observers are watching Ben Howland's UCLA Bruins closely this season. After three straight Final Fours from 2006-2008, the Bruins are just 2-2 in the tournament since (and missed it completely in 2009). West Coast recruits are shunning Howland. He's whiffed nationally, too. So Howland went out and got an AAU coach to add to his staff and help with recruiting. Those moves come with some risk - I know of at least two college basketball reporters sniffing around the program.
There's a line in this story that suggests reporters are at the very least, "curious" about Korey McCray's hire. I don't recall anything being mentioned at the time of his hire, or since then that would draw red flags, but now I'm curious. Was McCray's hire above board? Or is this just the national media piling on while UCLA is down?
Also, given the source, take it with a grain of salt.
