Before getting to sports - today is the first day of the (California) Bar exam. Let's all wish best of luck to every member of the Bruins Nation who may be taking that little pop quiz all across the U.S. this week. Good luck to you all. Now back to Bruin news of this morning.
More signs pointing to a possible huge day for UCLA basketball. From CBS Sportsline:
The 6-9 Love is expected to make public his decision to attend UCLA or North Carolina during a break in the Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile over at Fox Sports Burlison (the man is everywhere!) has a report on what Love and his team did to a team led by a certain controversial/tainted SC recruit, who has everyone around the so called college campus by the Harbor freeway drooling like Pavlov's dogs (emphasis mine):
I knew things were going to be a bit dicey during warm-ups when Greyhounds' forward Billy Walker was sitting on the bench with a forlorn expression on his face. [...]
[H]e didn't play in the game, apparently with a banged-up knee suffered in a game played Saturday. [...]
But without him on the floor and with guard O.J. Mayo looking almost mortal after a performance earlier Sunday against the Chicago team that has probably already morphed into legend (more on that later), D-1 has D-Zero chance of knocking off the Southern California club.
Mayo missed six of seven shots, Kevin Love and Renardo Sidney combined for 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Brandon Jennings had seven assists and two steals and SoCal was up 41-21 at intermission. [...]
I'll skip any details on that one since I've already forgotten them. The game was just another reminder why Love (29 points, 12 rebounds and four or five "I can't freakin' believe he just did that!" outlet passes) -- who is expected to announce Tuesday that he will sign with UCLA in November -- is without peer as a high school post player in the Class of 2007.
Thank God for Howland.
