Basketball player did good

Some basketball players do not quit the team and leave early: Dec. 10 marks the 60th anniversary of one of UCLA's most distinguished alumni, Ralph J. Bunche, receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. "As a political science major at UCLA, he excelled as a debater, wrote columns for the Daily Bruin, reigned as a star basketball player and ultimately graduated summa cum laude. Bunche, who had put himself through college with an athletic scholarship and a janitorial job, was UCLA's valedictorian in 1927."

Hill and Booker Speech on Wooden


"The very last thing I ever heard Coach say — and his voice was failing and you really had to strain to hear him — he looked over at this little group of guys sitting there at this table," Hill said, "and he looked at all of us and he said, ‘I only wish I could have done more for all of you.'" Former national champions Hill and Kenny Booker came to Cal State Long Beach Thursday to commemorate Wooden, two weeks after what would have been his 100th birthday.

I know he's not a Bruin, but if you enjoy college basketball (and crazy dunks) you have to dig Pepperdine's Keion Bell. Keion and the Waves play at Pauley this season on November 15.

Adidas Screwing With UCLA Basketball Uniform? (UPDATE)


Previously, BlueWave wondered in the FanPost re: the new Adidas football uniforms, if Adidas might be tweaking basketball jerseys, going with the tight-fitting jersey look that Nike rolled out a few seasons ago. It turns out they might. Take a look at last year's uniform here. Now take a look at the gallery from the men's basketball team's media day here. If you look closely, the new uniforms appear to fit more snug on top and the numbers seem to have gotten larger than previous seasons. Hopefully Adidas is not going to screw around with what is one of the most classic uniforms in college basketball. UPDATE (B) - Apparently, according to the fine folks at the very good UniWatch blog, UCLA is rolling out new uniforms this season, with some minor changes, but also it looks like it'll include the new Adidas Revolution 30 type technology (hence, the more tight fitting look).


Duke De-Commit Carrick Felix

Anyone aware of our chances of landing him? It sounds like he will end up in the Pac-10. Doesn't seem like a bad under-the-radar transfer as he is talented with three years of eligibility left.
