Lonzo Ball Leads UCLA Over Kent State, 97-80 in #MarchMadness

I wanted to watch last night's March Madness meeting between Kent State and UCLA mostly to check out Lonzo Ball. He's the freshman phenomenon out of Chino Hills, who helped lead his high school to record undefeated seasons before heading the Westwood. (Lonzo's got up-and-coming superstar basketball brothers as well. The family's kind of [in]famous in that way.)

In any case, I wasn't disappointed. Lonzo sank his first five baskets attempted, at least, including a three-pointer. Later in the game he took a long pass for a massive flying slam dunk. UCLA's a hot team, seeded third for these NCAA championship games.

In any case, I'm looking forward to seeing UCLA play deep into the tournament.
