I think he doesnt fit the eye test with length and standing height and that kind of stuff, but hes got some things you cant teach, and intangibles that are as good as anybody in American probably possesses.---FRESHMAN WATCHLonzo Ball, UCLA. The predictions for Balls impact seemed to be a bit exaggerated when he arrived in Westwood with so much hype.Its only been three games, but maybe there wasnt enough hype.The 6-foot-6 guard from nearby Chino Hills had a superb college debut, finishing with 19 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds in a blowout win over Pacific.Ball is averaging close to a triple-double so far, with 15 points, 8.3 assists and 7.7 rebounds per game.

He gave us a chance more times than not. He competed and he tried to hang in there on a team that has lost a lot of games and continued to go out there and try to be professional about it. He can stand tall. There are no shortcomings there, an ERA in the 3.3s.Its just unfortunate, and we talked about it before, we gave some games away that he pitched, maybe not playing good enough defeense or backing him up offensively.
