UCLA is slogging through another unproductive women's basketball season. I attribute the weak results to residue left on the UCLA bench from TIARA's presence. Injuries also play a key role.
But help is on the way. The McDonald's All-American game rosters were named yesterday. The game will be played in Chicago on March 30. And the 12 player West roster includes 3 future Bruins. This gives UCLA's recruiting class more players in this game than any other team.
The 3 future Bruins are point guard Jordin Canada (Windward High, off the 405 in LA), point guard Recee' Caldwell (San Antonio) and forward Lajahna Drummer (Long Beach Poly).
Cori Close apparently has a much easier time recruiting point guards than TIARA. She also does not have her daughter on the team. Coincidence?
In any event, this has become must-see TV.
