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.

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.

UCLA Basketball Loses To Minnesota, 83-63

Ladies and gentlemen, UCLA's Ben Howland era is officially over. As the Bruins were thoroughly destroyed by the Minnesota Gophers, 83-63, on Friday night, the writing was on the wall: This team had given up. The players, the coaches - they understood this was a last-stand type of deal, and they gave up.  Perhaps if this team had a better bench, or hell, Jordan Adams...

DEVELOPING: Howland Fired By UCLA...???

FOSG Gil Tyree is reporting that UCLA has wasted no time(one year later than expected) in firing head men's coach Ben Howland...
