A suggestion from a reader last week was for me to do a Monday review of what took place with UCLA the past week, and maybe even give a few look aheads for the coming week. I’ll try it out here (and please vote on the attached poll) to see how it works.
It’s the summer, so there isn’t news creeping out every second, but here’s a few things from the last week that I thought was interesting.
First, UCLA finally started 7-on-7 drills, and although it is without pads and doesn’t tell much as to whom will play roles once the season begins, I thought it was notable that a few freshman (receiver Antwan Moutra and cornerback Aaron Hester) were getting rave reviews from teammates.
Also, Ben Olson (foot surgery) said he was going to begin throwing today after being cleared to run more than a week ago.
Alfred Aboya is with Cameroon’s basketball team trying to qualify for the Olympics, but Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is with the Milwaukee Bucks’ summer league team in Las Vegas.
Russell Westbrook (Seattle/Oklahoma City) and Mbah a Moute and Kevin Love (MInnesota) all signed contracts with NBA teams and former UCLA wing Chace Stanback is looking at Washington, UNLV and North Carolina State, according to his high school coach.
Finally, UCLA released its basketball schedule, although a few opponents are yet to be named.
