Steve Alford found out that LiAngelo Ball was planning to leave UCLA through media reports Monday afternoon. As of Tuesday afternoon, the UCLA head coach hasn’t spoken to Ball since and doesn’t plan to reach out. Alford has other things to worry about.

“It’s not anything I can control,” Alford said Tuesday before UCLA’s game against Montana on Wednesday at 8 p.m. at Pauley Pavilion. “So as far as looking for an adjective of how I’m feeling, I guess what I’m feeling is very excited about this group of guys out there and I’m moving forward and doing the best I can with the guys in my locker room.”

    Can’t help but think how bad this is for the kid. No free passes in life, and his Bozo dad just gave him one.

      Very bad. Walked away from a great education.

      One? You think this is the first time LaVar has spoiled this kid? Why do you think he actually believed he could get away with shoplifting in a foreign country?
