Shabazz Muhammad lied about his age, so TruTV gave him an asterisk (Picture)

Shabazz Muhammad was exposed Friday for having lied about his age to appear younger and thus more desirable as an NBA prospect. Muhammad was born on Nov. 13, 1992, but his birthday in UCLA’s media guide listed him as born in 1993. That makes him 20 and not 19 as has been stated. When Muhammad was introduced by TruTV Friday during UCLA’s NCAA Tournament game against Minnesota...

LA Times: Shabazz Muhammad’s Father May Have Lied About His Son’s Age

The LA Times has published a report this morning, claiming that the father of UCLA star freshman Shabazz Muhammad may have been lying about his son’s age. The publication says that Ron Holmes, Muhammad’s father, lied about his son’s age, saying he was born in 1993 – while his birth certificate on file with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health shows he was actually...

Why Muhammad's draft status could drop

As if it wasnt already a given, UCLA head coach Ben Howland started spinning the conversation following the Bruins' final home game against Arizona earlier this month when he declared it was the last game for his star freshman Shabazz Muhammad at new Pauley Pavilion. For Howland, it was a no brainer. Its just kind of obvious when a kid is a lottery pick that theyre going to...

Minnesota catching UCLA at right time

MINNEAPOLIS Since the matchup was announced on Sunday, the Minnesota men's basketball team liked the draw it received in its first NCAA tournament game against UCLA. The absence of Jordan Adams for the Bruins might have something to do with that. Adams, a 6-foot-5 freshman guard, suffered a broken foot in the Pac-12 semifinal game Friday against Arizona. It happened on the final...

UCLA Basketball: In Context Of 2012-13 Season, Shabazz's Age-Gate Makes So Much Sense

Word's out - UCLA hoops freshman Shabazz Muhammad is a year older than you thought he was. In a time where lying about your age is commonplace -- hell, I wish I would've done so to make myself seem smarter; no one listens to the foul-mouhted 20-year-old college kid -- this isn't all that egregious, right? It's only a year, and it isn't as if anyone cares that...

Golden Gophers blow out the Bruins, and now get the Gators

A truly rewarding journey isn't easy. There are wrong turns, detours, and delays. The college basketball season is 30 games long, and the Golden Gophers got lost along the way, and more than once looked like they wanted to give up and go home. Instead, they'll be playing to go to the teams first Sweet 16 (that counts) since 1989. In basketball as in life, without negatives...

UCLA guard Norman Powell talks replacing Jordan Adams, what to expect from the Bruins versus Minnesota in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, and more...

UCLA Cheerleaders, dance team photo gallery

The UCLA Bruins are right there with the Kentucky Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks and North Carolina Tar Heels as the blue blood programs of college basketball- literally and figuratively. The UCLA cheerleaders are to college hoops what the USC Song Girls (USC Cheerleaders) are to college football. Both in L.A. both draw from that ridiculously superior talent pool. So the UCLA cheerleaders...
