Love in Pauley

Coach Howland's marquee recruit is coming to town this weekend:

The much-ballyhooed arrival of UCLA all-everything recruit Kevin Love will finally occur this week.

For one night, at least.

Love, the nation's No. 1 recruit who committed to the Bruins this past July, will bring his high school team to compete in the Verbum Dei Real Run Winter Classic held this Friday at Pauley Pavilion.

In the game, Love's Lake Oswego Lakers from Oregon will face off against Arron Afflalo's old high school team, Compton Centennial.

"From the day I committed to UCLA, I talked to my coaches about making this a possibility," Love said. "I wanted to be able to show my skills in front of the fans who want to see me play."
And while rest of his team-mates will be checking out Disneyland, what will Love do?:
On Saturday, Love and his father plan to stay on campus to watch the Bruins take on Oakland University.

Meanwhile, the rest of Love's teammates will be going down to visit Disneyland.

"I am too tall to go on any of the rides," Love said jokingly. "Anyways, I'd rather spend my day at Pauley watching my future team play basketball."
Sounds like KLove is already a card carrying member of Bruins Nation.
