The Lakers and Clippers will stage workouts for Jordan Farmar and Arron Afflalo, according to the families of the UCLA sophomore guards. They have made themselves available for the NBA draft June 28 but neither has hired an agent so they can retain their eligibility by withdrawing from draft consideration by June 18. They are projected to be low first-round or high second-round picks. Farmar, a point guard, is rated slightly higher than Afflalo, a shooting guard.

What better way for a basketball player to shift into a smooth and effective flow than by knocking down a jump shot or two and making his first couple of free throws? For much of his career at UCLA, that's the way it's gone for Arron Afflalo. What starts well usually ends well too, and sometimes it has all looked so easy. But not this year during the postseason.

Arron Afflalo got one thing right Thursday. After a performance he glumly called the worst of his career, he wasn't entitled to add his voice to the gloom that enveloped UCLA's locker room after the Bruins' 76-69 overtime loss to a decidedly unspectacular California team in the quarterfinals of the Pacific Life Pac-10 tournament.

Long Beach State is heading to Columbus, Ohio, for its first-round game against Tennessee in the NCAA tournament, and that means Aaron Nixon might need a new cellphone battery. That's because Nixon, a senior guard, grew up in Cleveland, about two hours away, and attended Columbus State Community College as a freshman. And ever since the brackets were announced Sunday, his phone has been ringing off the hook with ticket requests. "Honestly, I think I got about 100 already," Nixon said.

Daytime television has "The View. " Now YouTube has its own chatfest called "IMO. " The Web show, whose initials are recognizable as "In My Opinion" to those fluent in messaging shorthand, deals with dating, texting faux pas and other pressing topics relevant to teens and tweens. Its hosts are nearly as well known to these young viewers as ABC's Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldberg are to an older generation. Before taking her seat on "IMO's" canary yellow couch, 16-year-old Bethany Mota launched a YouTube channel that has attracted nearly 85 million views of her fashion and beauty tips.

Thursday night's results at Pauley Pavilion: UCLA wins one, loses two. It has been a season of exhilarating wins balanced by staggering losses of key personnel to injury, a season in which team doctors and trainers have been as integral to the team's success as Coach Ben Howland, a season in which points, rebounds and assists have been matched by sprains, tears and arthroscopic procedures. So it was again Thursday.

A heavy load of expectations was put on the freshman from Cameroon. It was hoped he could supply raw energy, strong rebounding, hardwood-controlling defense and opportunistic offense to a UCLA frontcourt badly in need of all those elements. It never quite happened for Alfred Aboya. Arthroscopic surgery on both knees before the first game caused him to limp into a season of rehabilitation and slow development.
