UCLA Preview CapsuleBy The Associated Press=UCLALast season: 15-17.Nickname: Bruins.Coach: Steve Alford.Conference: Pac-12.Whos gone: F/C Tony Parker, G/F Jonah Bolden.Whos back: G Isaac Hamilton. Senior led the Bruins with 16.8 points per game last season. G Bryce Alford. He enters his final season playing for his father. He averaged 16.1 points and a team-high 5.2 assists last season. C Thomas Welsh. The 7-foot junior averaged 11.2 points and 8.5 rebounds. G Aaron Holiday. He averaged 10.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists playing 31 minutes a game as a freshman last season, but could be relegated to coming off the bench. F G.G. Goloman. The 6-foot-11 junior averaged 12.1 minutes last season. G Prince Ali. Solid defensive player who averaged 11.8 minutes last season.Whos new: G Lonzo Ball. Well-regarded for his court vision and playmaking ability. The highly touted freshman is expected to be a one-and-done prospect. F T.J. Leaf. The athletic 6-foot-9 power forward was a McDonalds All-American who scored 3,022 points in his prep career. F/C Ike Anigbogu. The 6-9, 250-pounder gives the Bruins a different look at center than Welsh and could play his way into a larger role.The Skinny: Alford guided UCLA to just the fourth losing season in school history since John Wooden was hired in 1948. Hes got nearly everyone back and bolstered by one of the top recruiting classes in the country, including national player of the year Ball, the Bruins have nowhere to go but up after missing the postseason. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Wes-Schweitzer-Jersey/ . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Takkarist-Mckinley-Jersey/ . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Vic-Beasley-Jersey/ . The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN. Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Paytons New Orleans staff since 2007. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Derrick-Shelby-Jersey/ .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Matt-Schaub-Jersey/ . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. Arizonas loss to Butler on Friday night revealed some of the flaws hidden when playing against inferior opponents.The Wildcats opened the season with a victory over short-handed and youthful Michigan State, but the Bulldogs are a bigger, deeper and more-veteran team. Butler beat Arizona 69-65 in a hard-fought game in the Las Vegas Invitational, which dropped the Wildcats (5-1) from eighth to 16th in the AP poll.Were a work in progress, Arizona coach Sean Miller said.The Wildcats will try to make progress when they faces Texas Southern on Wednesday in Tucson, Ariz. (9 p.m. ET, Pac 12 Network). The Tigers (4-2) were predicted to win the Southwestern Athletic Conference in a preseason vote of league coaches and sports information directors.This will be the seventh of 16 road games to start the season for the Tigers, who are coming off an 84-73 loss at Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday. They are coached by Mike Davis, the former head man at Indiana and UAB.He directed Texas Southern into the NCAA Tournament in 2014 and 2015, the latter appearance resulting in a 93-72 opening-round loss to Arizona in Portland, Ore. That is the only previous matchup between the programs.The Wildcats return only two players from that team -- point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright and center Dusan Ristic, both juniors. That helps tell the tale of a young team still finding its way this season.Because of injuries and guard Allonzo Triers unexplained absence, Miller is working with eight scholarship players. Three are freshman, another is a junior college transfer.We lost to a very good basketball team, Miller said Friday night. Butler will be a team in the NCAA Tournament. They have a lot of experience. They are a little further along att this point than we are with that experience.ddddddddddddWe played through foul trouble. We had to play through some adversity. We didnt play well at times, but our effort was outstanding. That was the most important thing. When you do that, you learn from it.Trier, who averaged 14.8 points per game as a freshman last season, has not played this season. The school has not commented amid rumors of eligibility issues.Freshman 7-foot forward Lauri Markkanen has emerged as the teams leading scorer (18.2 points per game), but he was limited by foul trouble against Butler, scoring 15 points in 21 minutes before fouling out.He was not able to assert himself, Miller said. A couple of fouls he probably could have controlled by being where he was supposed to be.Freshman guard Kobi Simmons (12.7 ppg) and freshman wing Rawle Alkins (10.3 ppg) are the next two top scorers for the Wildcats.Texas Southern is led in scoring by junior guard Zach Lofton, who has spent time at Illinois State and Minnesota. He is averaging 20.5 points per game. Another transfer guard, Dulani Robinson from Pacific, is averaging 14.5 points per game.Derrick Griffin, a 6-7 power forward who won last seasons SWAC Player of the Year award, is averaging 12.2 points and 8.8 rebounds. He has been selected All-SWAC in basketball and football (2015, as a receiver), though he was dismissed from the football team this September.Theyre a very good team that can shoot the basketball, Louisiana-Lafayette coach Bob Marlin said of Texas Southern. They have great players in Lofton and Robinson, and Griffin is an outstanding athlete.
