Sacramento: Howland on UCLA's High Horse

By Jason Owens - March 16, 2007

While UCLA's Ben Howland had plenty of nice things to say about Indiana this afternoon, it was nothing compared to his recruiting effort from the podium on the greatness of UCLA.

Howland on playing another storied program like Indiana:

"You want to play with programs that have a storied tradition. There's no more storied program than UCLA, of course."

A little bit later:

"You have two of the most storied programs -- UCLA being the first, of course -- in the history of basketball... I would have never left Pitt for any other job."

A little bit later:
"Have you ever been to UCLA? It's the most beautiful campus in the country, bar-none. We are attracting some very good players."

Howland then went on to point out how movies like National Lampoon's Van Wilder and the Nutty Professor were filmed in Westwood. Man, that's great coach. I can think of a few programs in Kentucky, Indiana and North Carolina that might not agree 100 percent with Howland's sentiments, though.
