Guys first off again apologies for our server issues. SBN network had record traffic yesterday again. We of course experienced heavy volume for some reason God knows what (lol). But as this network gets bigger and bigger our tech folks are adding more and more servers to keep it running smoothly. So apologies for these glitches in last 24-48 hrs hours. This should be all smoothed out in near future.
So Love is in every major So. Cal. newspapers this am except for the LA Times. Brian Dohn of the Daily News as usual is on the beat:
During a Tuesday press conference in Las Vegas, 6-foot-9 Kevin Love - the top low-post player in the Class of 2007 and widely regarded as the second-best high school senior-to-be in the nation - gave a non-binding oral commitment to UCLA.
The Lake Oswego (Ore.) High product, who is the son of former Laker Stan Love and nephew of Mike Love, a founding member of the Beach Boys, chose the Bruins over North Carolina.
"There were a lot of changes for a while in my mind, and then UCLA just skyrocketed in my mind," Love said. "I just had a right feeling. One day (earlier this month), I just woke up and it felt right. I then woke up day after day, and it still felt right. I like coach Howland's style of slow down the ball, get the big men the ball."
Love should add a consistent scoring presence in the interior.
Once again though there is absolutely nothing from the LA Times on the Love story. Nothing. How bad is the LA Times? Check out the LA Times UCLA section. This is the lead story in the LA Times UCLA section:
