The kids were all right. Nothing spectacular, Ben Howland and his coaching staff figured. Derrick Williams of La Mirada and Kawhi Leonard of Riverside King were good high school basketball players but didn't warrant an offer from UCLA. So Howland passed, even though he prides himself on stocking the UCLA roster with area players and had won big in recent seasons thanks in part to under-the-radar recruits. Whoops! After signing with USC, Williams left for Arizona in the wake of the Trojans' NCAA entanglement and has become the most dynamic forward in the Pacific 10 Conference.

Stan Love appreciated Wes Unseld's kindness and his outlet passes in equal measure, so when Stan's second son was born 19 years ago, Kevin Love received the middle name Wesley. It's not an exact replica -- Unseld's full first name is Westley -- but the intention by Stan was to honor his former Baltimore Bullets teammate. "Wes Unseld was a kind person and a great basketball player," Stan Love said. "I used to call him a citizen of the world. When Kevin was about to be born I just wanted to pay tribute to Wes. I didn't plan for Kevin to throw those outlet passes like Wes."

LAS VEGAS -- When Kevin Love was in the eighth grade, his father, Stan, called a trusted friend, longtime college coach Jim Harrick, and said, "I think my son is really good." "You're not one of those psycho dads, are you?" Harrick said. Stan, a former NBA player himself, including a season and a half with the Lakers, told Harrick to come out and see for himself. "Yeah," Harrick said after viewing the younger Love, "he is really good." How good?

EUGENE, Ore. -- UCLA Coach Ben Howland was unhappy with the behavior of the crowd at Oregon's McArthur Court on Thursday night, characterizing some of the personal references made at the expense of Bruins freshman center Kevin Love, Love's father Stan and members of Stan's family as "vile, disgusting, inappropriate innuendo."

On the one hand, Kevin Love turned down Oregon, his home-state university, to play basketball for UCLA, the powerhouse school in the same conference. On the other hand, Kevin's father, Stan, once an Oregon basketball great himself, ripped into the school and its coach, Ernie Kent, after Kevin committed to UCLA, saying Kent "shot himself in the foot," by doing a poor recruiting job on his son. So, most fans at McArthur Court in Eugene tonight will be clapping for anyone but Love, father and son.

PHOENIX -- Stan Love chews his nails until they bleed, puts teeth marks in his wrist, paces, climbs stairs up and down, and almost always has an opinion about how his son, Kevin, played. But Saturday, after Kevin was selected the most outstanding player in the NCAA West Regional, Stan Love was left (almost) speechless. "It's unexplainable," a teary-eyed Stan said. Stan played college basketball at Oregon and for four years in the NBA but said he never experienced such emotion.

Sorry for the downer, but have you looked at the UCLA schedule? If Kevin Love is a one-year player, he has four games left in Pauley Pavilion. UCLA is steamrollering the Pacific 10 Conference and Love is looking more confident at every turn, this time with a 26-point, 11-rebound outing in an 82-60 victory over what until Saturday was a hot Arizona team. But the season is rapidly evaporating, and Love has noticed. "I really can't believe it," he said.

The long-playing, woe-filled ballad of Beach Boy Brian Wilson's return from mental illness and substance abuse took a bizarre turn on Monday as Wilson's cousin filed a court petition claiming that the rock singer has been "brainwashed" by a former psychologist who has taken control of Wilson's recording enterprises.

Just 12 years ago, William Francis McLaughlin, a hotshot entrepreneur in the medical device industry, hit the jackpot. His neophyte company, operating out of a Santa Ana garage, had created a prototype blood-filtering device for collecting plasma that was soon to be used by blood banks worldwide. "We were very excited and broke out the champagne and had a little celebration in the garage," recalled Bill Miller, one of McLaughlin's partners in the highly successful enterprise.

Stan Love remembers it like it was yesterday, he and his cousin Brian Wilson, of the Beach Boys, sitting in the stands together watching a basketball game, eyes focused on Love's prodigiously skilled son, Kevin. "Brian just kept turning to me and saying, 'Wow, he's good, he's really, really good,' " Love recalls, speaking of the 2006 game at Pauley Pavilion, played when Kevin was still in high school. "And I kept saying, 'You know what, Brian, you're right, he is really good.'
