Moving the UCLA basketball program forward is going to be tricky. The Bruins had a good season, reaching an NCAA regional semifinal for the first time since 2008 and pushing top-ranked Florida to the final minutes. For two days in Memphis - pregame and postgame - Coach Steve Alford talked about the "foundation" that was built. Less than 24 hours later, though, that foundation already had a crack. Freshman guard Zach LaVine will declare for the NBA draft, his family said Friday.

Lurking beyond the NCAA tournament horizon for UCLA's basketball team is one very important question: Will they or won't they? Three Bruins will have NBA decisions to make once their tournament run is done. Sophomore Kyle Anderson , sophomore Jordan Adams and freshman Zach LaVine may have already played their last game at Pauley Pavilion. Or one, two or all could be back next season. The early line has Anderson leaving, LaVine a pick 'em and Adams likely to return.

It was late Thursday night when UCLA's short-handed basketball team finally succumbed to Oregon in double overtime, 87-83. The Bruins were able to rally from a 14-point second-half deficit without their two best players, Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson , who were suspended one game for violating team rules. "I don't know if I've been more proud than I am of this team," Coach Steve Alford said after UCLA fell to 21-7 overall, 10-5 in Pac-12 Conference play. The suspensions meant a much-longer-than-usual night for freshmen Bryce Alford and Zach LaVine , who replaced Adams and Anderson.
