Howland quickies

UCLA coach Ben Howland just spent his 10 minutes at the podium. The highlights:
He’s not a fan of the 3-point line moving back a foot, saying it will cause more teams to play zone defense and “make the game boring” because offenses will be more deliberate.
The Pauley Pavilion project could go in front of the regents in the next few weeks, and fund-raising could become more public then. (He also hoped the stock market rises a few thousand points).
And re-iterating what he said yesterday, his starting lineup, while subject to change, is pretty set with C Alfred Aboya, PF James Keefe, SF Josh Shipp, SG Jrue Holiday and PG Darren Collison.
