  • Kentucky takes down UCLA, heads to Elite Eight

"That's a lost art in college basketball, and it's very hard to stop". UCLA's Isaac Hamilton quickly responded.

This is getting old.

It all adds up to a nation-leading 21.6 assists per game, the highest mark in college basketball since UNLV's 1991 team averaged 24.7 on its way to the Final Four.

Not only did the No. 3 seed Bruins (31-6) fail to reach their goal of a national championship but by losing in the Sweet 16, they also missed out on three more opportunities to take the floor together.

NOTES: Kentucky's first 3-pointer Friday night extended its NCAA-record streak of making at least one in 1,012 consecutive games.

When it ended, Coach Steve Alford waited at the end of the court to pat the backs of each of his dazed players as they staggered into the tunnel, many of them saying goodbye not only to the season, but also to UCLA.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Star UCLA freshman Lonzo Ball says he's one and done at UCLA and headed to the next level. He also got Welsh in foul trouble and the Bruin center fouled out with nearly six minutes left, creating another advantage for the Cats.

It turns out, he's not gone.

Speculation was rampant during the tournament that Alford could fill the coaching vacancy at IN, his alma mater. Even though there were even reports that he had already been offered a contract, with some saying it was a done deal, Alford has made a decision to stick with a program that he has slowly rebuilt. "I think they're going to Bam more throughout the course down the stretch in the tournament".

"Get stronger", he said "I'm about to get ready to play big men". The former IN star ticked off how both sons (Bryce and Kory) have graduated from UCLA, he has the No. 2 recruiting class coming IN and a new practice facility opening soon. I am 100% committed to UCLA. "I like his style, and I'm glad he's staying".

UCLA had beaten Kentucky in Rupp on December 3, but that was a while ago and the Bruins entered with the element of surprise. "This is a pretty special place". The elder Ball said that he wants Lonzo to play for the Lakers.

Ball was shaking his head and staring at the sky.

January 21, 2017; Los Angeles, CA, USA; Arizona Wildcats center Chance Comanche (21) moves the ball against the defense of UCLA Bruins forward Ike Anigbogu (13) during the first half at Pauley Pavilion.

Throughout the entire process, Monk's confidence never wavered, and his mindset to keep shooting was as persistent as ever. Even in this awkward age of the one-and-dones, it was a strikingly unfeeling moment, as poorly timed as his father LaVar's recent public braggadocio. "He's extremely quick with the ball and he was able to put it in one hand and kind of outrun me", Hayes said.

When asked whether it was disappointing to end his brief career like this, he quickly answered, "This is not a disappointment". North Carolina is arguably the most balanced team remaining in the NCAA Tournament. "It's not just a football school anymore, I think it's turned into becoming - or a football conference, so it's turned into a basketball conference". "He makes his first two shots coming out of the half, the basket just gets bigger, then there's no stopping him". "It's OK. No one goes undefeated, '" LaVar Ball said. It made for a thrilling back-and-forth sequence. "I'm still thinking about tonight". Meanwhile, UCLA shot 75 percent in those 10 minutes but went from trailing by three points to trailing by seven.

The season began back in November with UCLA scoring 100 points against Pacific and the basketball world talking about the awesome flying Bruins. "Our fans, I mean they are going to be in the state of Kentucky, you look at the kids that will be born next year, many Dom's and Derek's will be named because of those two".

The Ducks squeaked by MI and appear to be adjusting to life without forward Chris Boucher, who was lost for the season earlier this month with an injured knee.
