Steve Alford Says He Was 'Surprised' LiAngelo Ball Left UCLA Basketball Team

His brash behavior, disproportionate sense of self and overall attitude toward authority disgusts me, and pulling his son out of school takes the cake.

Just recently, Ball's middle son, Liangelo, was the one that brought him into the national spotlight.

NCAA president Mark Emmert is under fire for comments made during a conference about whether or not LiAngelo Ball should have been at UCLA at all before his father pulled him from the school. I think it was more, maybe, "surprised.' If you're looking for one word, maybe it's 'surprised" because it's nothing that we saw coming.

Chiefs CB Marcus Peters suspended for Sunday's game after Jets incident
Peters will forfeit one game check, which comes out to $76,840, as part of his suspension. "That was the wrong thing for him to do".

UCLA returns to the court Wednesday night against the Montana Grizzlies. "So I don't know if there's an adjustment, we just keep moving forward".

The other two freshmen detained in China for shoplifting - Jalen Hill and Cody Riley - remain enrolled at UCLA but suspended indefinitely. "I'd rather be playing". LaVar said. "Let's stand up to bat (for the players) and say you're the coach".

"Yes, we have openings at the security staff because they have experience in this field" is the best put down on the Ball family anyone has thrown yet, and it comes from a Lithuanian basketball team you've never heard of until reading this story.

Ball told ESPN he hasn't decided where LiAngelo will play this season. Three UCLA basketball players - Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley - detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting returned home, where they might be disciplined by the school as a result of the global scandal. Ball asked during an interview with CNN on Tuesday morning. "I'm at Pauley (Pavilion) every day".

The university disciplinary process via the office of student conduct is ongoing, Alford said Tuesday, adding that he didn't have a timeline for when it would be finished. The other part of me thinks he is a insane dad who clearly loves his sons but does not know how to conduct his love for them in a socially acceptable way.

Spagnuolo had a long meeting with Smith and understood his disappointment at losing the starting job through no fault of his own. But when asked if Webb would handle the scout-team duties by himself this week, Spagnuolo said, "Probably not this week".
