Final Four Weekend: How Did UCLA Make It In?
"Make you are is. You are ears on the ground for this final four and it is a special one tomorrow night. Because baylor's taking on houston and then undefeated gonzaga is playing this unlikely cinderella. Ucla and i feel the need to start with ucla. Myron because i don't think anyone outside of bill walton saw any of this coming. I don't think anybody's saw them knocking off. A one seed in michigan bell. Takes the basketball dickinson looking choirs. An adviser turns players at three for the good off. The back of the ramp and ucla has water from i. Four to the final four for the nineteen taught school history the first since two thousand eight. The bruins aren't going off final four. Ucla's own players are using words like surreal unreal. When they're asked to describe what this ride to the final four has been like. So how did ucla pull all of this out of the anyone knows and it's funny because a lot of people are saying. Hey you should have believed in the pac twelve. But i demanded all pac twelve fans. Show me they're brackets so we can see if they even believed in the past well. Ucla came out of nowhere and just to beat a team like michigan. That was legitimately a great team. That people thought might be able to some trouble and here. They are just winning game after game. I mean if you want to sum up the chaos of the entire twenty twenty twenty twenty one season. It's ucla in the final four right now after. Not even being the best team in the pack twelve so they make it from the first four to the final four. The second team since vcu to do that. When i saw them beat michigan.

2021 Men's Final Four Preview
"Now to continue with college basketball analyst. Dan copp as we look ahead to the final four. Alan good to be with you and finish it off in this home. Stretch here here. We go all right so obviously the baylor houston line. I think is more compelling but let's start with gonzaga because they are these story right now. Two wins away from a national championship. It is the largest spread we've ever had in a final four at fourteen. Excuse me it would be the largest upset ever if the bruins can pull it off. How do you see this game. Point playing out well after that bad beat oklahoma game when i took the fifteen and a half It became really evidence me. You can't be betting on zag for the whole game. The way that we move on the ucla usc game dominate the first half and the second half they kind of shift down into different gear. You're you just don't know what you're gonna get. So i i like playing them in the first half again this game at the last two games and it's paid off both times So in in this regard. I you know the first twenty minutes. Doug you're going to get the best of them to get one hundred percent of what they have for those twenty an app most likely and after that. I don't know what the hell's gonna to happen so it is pretty remarkable that some of these big favorites and started to catch up but some of these big favorites. Do kind of like. I don't want to go through the motions but you would think they'd all be up for tournament game. But sometimes we see sluggish start but that has not been the case with no and it really think it's function a little bit about how marks you does things in the within that. Wcc when you watch them play in that conference they're constantly in second gear and they have a bunch of slow starts and then they turn it on at some point usually close to half and create a gap or in early in the second half and winning going away. This is different. They wait the whole year. And you talk to them you once. They hit january they. They are chomping at the bit to get to march. Because it's the the the the competition ratchet up the stakes ratchet up. It's a different element. And that's why. I think those guys fully locked in from the tip

Managing Finances When the Flow of Income is Inconsistent With Jeff Fishman
"Hello. Everyone and welcome to the latest episode of wealth management dot coms celebrity estates wills of the rich and famous for anyone new to the and each instalment myself in a guest on a different celebrities. State attempt to extract some key lessons planners can apply to their more traditional clients. The idea being that celebrity estate planning stories although often ridiculous in their details generally have at their course basic issues that can just as easily apply to non famous or fabulously wealthy clients. Our guest this week is jeff fishman. Jeff is the founder and managing number of jsf financial in los angeles. Thanks for joining us jeff. It's great to be here so normally. This is the part where i introduced the celebrity subject of this week's episode and then run my mouth for about five minutes telling story about their state. We're gonna throw a curveball this week though no celeb- instead we're gonna flip our mission statement a bit and talk with jeff specifically about advising high profile clients in those in the entertainment industry which is a topic a number of our listeners of interest in hearing tackle so jeff. Before we get into the real nitty gritty. Do you mind telling our audience a bit about yourself. And your sure david ed. So i'm born and bred in los angeles and went to college and law school in new york so i basically spent my life here on both coasts and after having this law a couple of years i've gone through. Ucla financial planning program and decided to start my own fee based financial planning practice which i began twenty five years ago and being in the middle of los angeles having grown up here inevitably. I have a lot of friends from childhood in other people that i've met who works throughout the entertainment industry and our whole practice has been built upon referrals. And as you can imagine. Those young producers young writer suddenly become showrunner has become directors They introduce you to others and it's basically just been word of mouth progression throughout the industry which is taken us to where we are today interesting so i know a lot of for a lot of our listeners and a lot of advisors on working with sort of you know entertainment clients in high profile clients. Like this is sort of an aspirational thing. So a very popular question we get is. How do i break into this industry. How do i start having these clients. It seems like you started collecting your client during childhood. It's funny it is it all goes down to relationships like anything else on the one hand On the other hand. I mean it's interesting. It's type of an industry that you could get started if you wanna start at the bottom. And we've all heard the stories of people working at the agencies in the mailrooms coming from harvard yale and literally going ahead and working melrose at creative artists agency or one of the others. And it's pretty much the same if you wanna go and start working in the industry. You've got to start with those kind of people because the way the industry works is those people to bottom inevitably one of them move up to somebody's desk ultimately become the agent or somebody young writer's room to become a writer himself a lead writer or producer. And it's really just starting early with certain people in their career like any other industry and hopefully growing with them and that's really interesting point. I'm glad you brought up here. Is that. I think for a lot of people. Entertainment equals celebrity. So if someone's in the entertainment industry automatically high profile person and it's just this leap but in reality there was an entire ecosystem that makes up the entertainment industry. And so you can enjoy working with everyone. Among the legal system much like working with clients has said and other industries is an important part of eventually working your way up to those higher up people completely completely and again once you start forging relationships in people forget entertainment industry is. I mean you've got invented the camera and you've got all the people who are behind the camera and there's a lot more people who work behind the camera than in front of the camera and that whole industry behind the camera. They tend to be much with all call more More consistent type of income situations they tend to be far more stable and so make sure business standpoint while the people in front of the camera or a lot. More appealing maybe sexy. The other side is actually a lot more attractively. Think about it. From an overall business perspective you mentioned consistency of income. Can you expound on that at concept a little bit in sort of what that means with with this sort of segment clientele sure so if you are in executive studio you're going to typically be under contract for multiple years if you are a writer on a show as long as the show's coming back and it's doing well. You're typically going to come back season after season Alternatively if your talent on a show and even if the show or if you wanna move movie to movie if you're on a show only subject to renewal but more than that if all of a sudden the show starts doing well but typically will happen. We'll be the talent is looking to earn more money per episode

A lot of latin food is not going to be very favorable for your house and that was just heartbreak because i felt that time that without realizing you know he was really saying. You have to make a choice between your health and your culture and sex that your cultures reread unhealthy for you is really you know the subtexts of all of what she is trained to say to be and i was really bothered by this. And how like this guy is just wrong this. There's no way that this is true. Might food is healthy for me. I am going to figure out a way. And so i really start getting involved in the food. Justice seen Here in la start managing farmers markets and the farmers market. Were working at the time. Says we need to get sales up for peaches. I think and the farmers market manager said like. Do you think you do a cooking. Demo and i fought was cantaloupe. canelo is i. I can't do a damn will i. That is eventually talked to you. Know my parents. I was like maybe i'll do. Let's try. I did eat cantaloupe salsa. I remember and it was fine. I had a good time. We kept doing it and finally she says these are so great. We're getting people to come in to try food and the farmers are happy. Because there's more traffic so we're going to put you on the schedule every single eventually people would stay after class or after my demo and say hey i have this ingredient. How do i use this. Or what's another way. That i keep prepare this and then he started to call me. Chef chef carla. I'm looking at the ferruginous today. And i would. Let's now how you recommend me using it. And i thought all who's gonna tell them i was really trying to have this farmer's market in east hollywood who you know. The only reason i got involved is because of everything. I was learning about the access to food. And how integral when we talk about social justice and when we look at the scope of problems and challenges in our communities food is is there for this political crews picking your food who gets to eat certain foods and i was not there to make canelo sausa- but of course you know you found me doing and i when i started to get people you know to come after class in asking these questions i thought like i really need to be about it and i refused to go.

It's extremely oppressive. She second in the pac twelve of scoring points per game. She had at least twenty points and seven straight games from january third to february seventh.

"The same is true of Kentucky in the Gillespie. Here's like sure their attendance dips a little bit. But these people like there's not a ton of stuff to do. So that is what that is the difference in it. It's an UCLA's never going to be able to get over that hurdle. So that is that is interesting to me that I don't know. I mean, I get the point like they usually fan because there are UCLA fans that they'd live and breathe UCLA basketball. They exist. I understand that. But at the same time, it they UCLA is unlike any other job in that the fan base isn't as rabbit, and there's no there's no sugar coating, the just isn't. And you don't have to apologize for that. If you're UCLA fans, if I was struck my shoulders would be like, yeah, I'm not as rabid. I live in a great fucking city. And I have a ton of shit to do in my life is awesome. So sorry. I'm not gonna apologize for that. And I would just move on like you don't need to get defensive about that. But as pertains to the actual basketball and the coach they're going to hire. It's very fascinating. Because I feel like a lot of these coaches are smart enough. I mean, the fact that they hired Steve Alford in the first place six years ago. Five almost six. Years ago. What does that tell you about like the perception of UCLA at that time Tate like that was the best they could do then? So I don't know. It's interesting it it also seems like they're trying to tap into the tradition of those blue bloods. So if you bring a guy like Steve Alford. We'll Steve offer gets it. He worked with Bob ninety played under Bob Knight. He's from the Bob. Knight system is from the Indiana ilk, we're going to bring him out here. And he's going to he's going to sell that to these kids. And it's not even about again being defensive is about like playing defense. You know? I mean, what the watch his know UCLA teams, even the good ones. You know, like, they just they weren't defensive minded teams are not really tough minded teams. And that's kind of where you said they were fair weather fans. I mean, they're good weather fans. Like, I think fair is even worse than that. Like, I think that they they should be. They should just be an MBA like they should just they should just sell the idea. All these kids that want to go to these blue bloods and end up settling to go to Memphis, or wherever where I'm going to be the one guy, you know, say you're take his caldwell-pope. And it's like, well, I'm going to Georgia, and I know that. They're going to do everything in their power to surround me. So I look good and set me up to go to the NBA because as good PR for them UCLA. I mean, obviously, they're doing that in some capacity now, but they should just lean into it. One hundred percent. We are just an NBA factory. We we're gonna take all these kids that really do just care by themselves. And we're just gonna let them play pickup as glee and sometimes they're gonna win crazy games. And sometimes we're going to have, you know, fun years. And no from the for the rest of it. You know to just is what it is. Like, I mean, they're trying to bring in these old school coaches like Steve offered to kind of teach discipline and to get these kids to play a certain way, and you're not gonna play that way in southern California doesn't fit the identity of the people of Sal, southern California doesn't fit like lavar ball would have more fun with coach and one of these teams at UCLA than Steve offer was having because he would roll the balls out and say, look, look how athletic and talent talented..

"Say, the very least. But yeah, it's. There's a lot of guys that were broken up. They wanted this one. They felt they deserve to win. And it was tough. And what are you going to say very very frustrating way to lose in? You know, they did everything they could in the second half. Yes. They didn't play perfectly. There were a couple of misuse here. And there, but you're in a position to win in those two thousand three point shots really really swung things here tonight in from the momentum's back and from the score aspects of very tough to absorb those one. You know, otherwise you played pretty pretty great basketball in the second half. John mooney. I think has been the steadiest player for Notre Dame entire year. Play solid smart effective basketball. He's a good three point shooter. You only took tonight. Mr. both is would they don't need them outside. They need him inside and against the tallest. Most physically imposing team learning space this year, he more than held his own twelve points and eleven physical rebounds, two assists. No turnovers. A plus minus of five his fifth double double of the season to lead the ACC six in his career. You got to feel great for Rex Pflueger? I mean, all of us around the t t worried about how he would deal with tonight. Fourteen points, four assists. One steal four of four from three to tie a career high five of six overall, six rebounds. He did he scored early and he scored late and may big shots and played with himself. And the only emotion can I saw was the welling of tears at the end when a change when Steve Alford said something to his face light up this. He came home. If there's a silver lining tonight. He had to play on in his hometown. I mean, Dana points about sixty miles south of Los Angeles. But this is where he grew up, and he was up to the moment and folks in life that's hard to do without a doubt. And you'll hear coach pray talk a little bit more about that in the post game interview. But I think we all have to be really proud of a Rex fluids night. A lot of guys go home, and then there's so many distractions you you're a ball of nerves and he came out was cool. Calm collected from the start played within himself. Didn't force anything and was doubt in knocking down threes. And so and he always does the other things one is getting rebounds. And. So when he he adds a consistent outside shot too that he he's a very very great player in very tough to stop it. I don't know. I think we're all very happy for him with how he played tonight. Jack, I like with Prentice up did handling the ball at four six two turnovers. One steal thirty five minutes. Got TJ off the ball. Now. He's too of twelve shooting one of four from three with six rebounds. I think the shooting will come deejay Harvey huge in the second half ended up with thirteen points and five or twelve shooting six rebounds with an assist three steals for DJ. A plus minus of six to lead the Irish TJ Gibs nine points better in the second half still four fourteen shooting for assists, three turnovers steel Robbie Carmody play just under three minutes didn't score a couple of rebounds. Juwan Durham eleven minutes. Got called for taunting early and inundated close game all of this stuff. It hurts. I know you want to get a little slack. This officiating crew wasn't giving Notre Dame and slack tonight. So he played eleven minutes. Got one rebound. Thought he'd be more of a factor tonight, two points, Dane Goodwin. Eleven minutes. Two points, two rebounds Neethling shaky eleven minutes three points one or two from three with two rebounds, the fighting Irish. For the contest thirty six percent. Twenty four sixty six but sixteen of thirty one of the second half fifty two percent of twenty three from three respectable thirty two percent. But five ten in the second half six of seven in the game from the free throw line in a game. That was this physical. The fact that they went to the line seven times, I think. Volume the rest absolutely swallowed their whistles. So it's it's weird to me than in a game. Where you let everything go you call those two hall does two thousand three point shots that honestly I'm gonna have to see the one on Prentice because you know, it's very easy to miss a little knickknack tap on the elbow. But the one from DJ Harvey was absolutely all I don't know what the rep is looking at in that situation and DJ Harvey is absolutely crushed. After this game. He wanted this one so badly. He was so fired up who's flying around and warm ups that a great second half. Yeah. It's it was an emotional scene in there, Jack. So it's the guys are taking it hard. And hopefully, they'll learn and grow from this. And but I think we saw the fixed steps forward tonight. Fire shit sixteen on twenty four field goals nine turnovers in the game. UCLA head twelve you look at the hustle stats. Learning at nine turnovers. Twelve for UCLA points off turnovers noting twelve ten for UCLA offensive rebounds nine for Notre Dame eighteen for UCLA but second chance points Notre Dame won. That battle sixteen twelve which I think is amazing bench points. Ten seven UCLA points in the paint Notre Dame twenty two UCLA twenty-six Notre Dame had the battle to do that fast break points five for the Irish seven for UCLA that was a point of emphasis for Notre Dame to try to limit the UCLA fast-break blocked shots. Six for Notre Dame. Four for UCLA assists, sixty seventeen for UCLA game was tied ten times. Lee changed hands three times UCLA lead for twenty seven twelve for seven zero six and they go down to a heartbreaker sixty five sixty two when we come back.

Probably jump book is what move fighter on that. Makes it forty eight forty one Notre Dame back to within seven much better. For Notre Dame, the MAC number one. Here's the voice of Notre Dame basketball Jack Nolan and that is certainly an understatement. The second half of the best halves a basketball nursing's played this year. Fifty two percent shooting fifty percent from three five of six from the free throw line. But they come up short sixty five sixty two to UCLA time. Now for your final stats brought to you by expanded by Comcast. And for what it's worth, a friend of mine, and now works at UCLA who will remain nameless agrees that how what should I use got hardware tonight? You can extrapolate that all you want. So here's a look first of all for UCLA, Cody Riley, twenty six minutes, nine points, six rebounds. Moses brown. They're seven one center, eight points, nine rebounds. But he had a plus minus of minus nine Notre Dame handled him very well. Jalen hands, twelve points, five rebounds, eleven assists. Double double for Jalen with four turnovers. Chris Wilkes hit the miraculous three to win it fourteen points tying Pflueger for game. High scoring honors fourteen points, eight rebounds, and assists. A steel plus minus seventeen best in the game prince Ali twelve points, three rebounds, two assists, three turnovers in twenty eight minutes for UCLA Jules Bernard. Played ten minutes actually, eleven five tick short of eleven two points with a rebound and assist. David singleton at four points, no rebounds, one of four shooting.

Shot thirty four percent for the game nine of twenty five from three five and fifteen in the second half. They were eight of fifteen from the free throw line five of nine in the second half. They rebound. The Irish fifty to forty. Seventeen assists for UCLA on twenty four field goals. Twelve personal fouls called against UCLA thirteen against Notre Dame. But the ones that were called an EMMY even more the ones that were not Notre Dame in the second half got aggressive. Zach Hill's land driving to the basket. And I don't think they were rewarded for. Now, just got back in the locker room, a very emotional very frustrated seen in their coach Bray, certainly not happy with the two fouls that were called on the three point shots for UCLA. He was beside himself to.

In this case one twenty-five remaining. We'll twain Bama ball to the left of the Irish hoop to our left. UCLA falls? A thirty second timeout tied at sixty two. So this team has done a lot of growing up here tonight UCLA one of their last eight, but with some help of some timely whistles. Be able to tie the game UCLA is eight of fifteen from the free throw line fifteen times. Literally, he's got to the line seven and they've made six tonight thirteen fouls called against Notre Dame twelve against UCLA. But a couple of three point shooting fouls. Called for Ali. Has allowed him to make four free throws which in a sixty to sixty two game are huge. Notre Dame with Mooney Gibbs Pflueger, Harvey and hub on the floor right now. Again, Welsh will inbound it.

And this is gonna be your heartbreak. This Notre Dame team drew up a lot tonight. Let's see they're gonna go and look at the monitor to see how much time Notre Dame could get back on the clock. We knew this was going to be a process Wilkes is still on the floor right in front of a skip Meyer out there. Some advice as well. Steve Alford there. Wilkes gonna lip off the floor after making maybe the biggest shot at his life sophomore at Indianapolis. Be tested the NBA water and says well last year and came back. Lot of story games between Notre Dame and UCLA and Wilkes. May have just added his paragraph to one of those chapters. China cancelling out a glorious homecoming by Pflueger who's tied with Wilkes for game. High scoring honors fourteen and Harvey who spent outstanding especially in the second half with thirteen. All right. They've added eight tenths of a second. So there are nine tenths of a second left. In the game. Notre Dame has to hit a three coach gray has called a time out. It's a thirty second time out. They will give it a fulltime out. Now the players are coming over. It's to be Gibbs party moody, unless they make some shifts here, which they could get your best three point shooters out there. I mean, this one we went into it. I mean talk with Bill Walton physical superiority he thought was overwhelming for UCLA from Notre Dame. Obviously, there's a lot of UCLA games in his grad the way this team has grown fought back in the second half. And this one hurts Jack this doesn't hurt. And I think they got they got an unfriendly whistle, but you do on the road, and we didn't have access to the. Replay. And I will tell you that more often than not when you see the wheat way. The officials are right more often than not. I'm not so much upset about that. What else you got you pointed it out it hurts Notre Dame got up by five and they got a little sloppy. They had consecutive possessions where they weren't it. With the ball over the open the door backup to UCLA, and you open the door to Wilkes who can barely walk getting the ball. And throwing it at three you're talking about the last three up at the possessions for the hours as well. I think the one where you get a deejay Harvey. You can't ask for anything better than that will live with the next possession. You've got our guards going into the paint and kind of trying to throw up prayers, and we saw the person that that just doesn't work against the length and size of UCLA. They're gonna come and gobble those up. He had his alter the first round of the second one. I believe it was Riley. You can't do it. The block on practice hub is it's very hard to score inside that don't go with that dunk talent. We couldn't get a better shot up there with the maybe votes breaking draws them up your nights ago, but. Bigs aren't looking good. But that rule out a miracle. Notre Dame's timeout has run out. But Steve Alford as called the time out of his own when he saw Notre Dame sandy back onto the floor. Irish. Shooting. Fifty one point six percent in the second half of your five or ten from free at one point in this game. They had been out rebounded by UCLA thirty four seventeen. It's now fifty to forty and that's after UCLA had one recent possession where I counted four offense rebounds on the one possession. They had cut the rebounding apposite down to seven hundred nineteen got better here tonight. Folks, they grew up somewhat, but it's they played well enough to add their own story chapter to this series. But. Not over yet. But somebody is going to have to make one unbelievable shot here to send this game in overtime or hope that a young UCLA team could actually foul three point shows. I think we deserve maybe following a three pointer tonight after the two that you're going to get one. I don't think so, but it certainly feel like as just vase based on how life those fouls word favor of UCLA. Second chance points tonight. Notre Dame leads that sixteen twelve that's amazing against the huge UCLA. All right Pflueger. Imbalan- the ball underneath the Notre Dame basketball. So he somehow to get it to an open shooter make the shot flu cash, and he can run the baseline Pflueger gets the mid court to kids kids at the buzzer. Chest to the right of the hoops UCLA whole John winning sixty five sixty two eight thriller and heartbreaking for the fighting Irish of Notre Dame. I really feel for the guys on this one Jack they played so well and the second half, and it was everybody, you know, we had big place in absolutely everyone. Moody got it started by taking to the basket getting that dunk Pflueger hits a number of great threes. He played so well in front of his friends and family deejay. Harvey had a great second half guys making plays practice hub had a couple of nights takes. Now. Doesn't shots hugging. Rex Pflueger giving him some his Rex Rex in tears. I mean, this is his homecoming. That he grew up. Watching can't here's not. The most what he's not crying. Amana cryan. No, I'm not there a water. He's about to cry. Ah? His did this pug there, which is a sweaty guy. Just got done. Probably thirty seven minutes is there's nothing wrong with getting emotional after game. I don't think he's crying as saying. I didn't say crying, I said tears different thing. Crying full out hallway. Oil to give you that. I'll give you that. There was watery. Those tier, you know. All right. I'll let you have it. And you know, what I wouldn't be surprised because that was that's a heartbreaking loss from it. See that's at a very long week has gone coast to coast. At a bit of a tougher one against Oklahoma. We weren't as close to winning and maybe the desert, but I really thought based on the second half effort today, the hours we're gonna pull this one out. Just did not bow CLA an eight zero run over the last two forty three. Notre Dame did score for the last three thirty nine and UCLA Wednesday sixty five sixty to the post game show is coming up next.

"At folly pavilion, the Irish trailing the Bruins twenty four to twenty and right now, again, UCLA huge and they're just dominating the boards. And you've gotta love the spark of his Notre Dame team. And again, all of the the the young players. This is Nick. That has the potential shoot the ball. Well freshman shot well in high school the veterans have shot at well in the past. But they're searching for that offense rhythm that will come with experience experiencing Tennessee, the Bill over year gonna be tough to build it against this huge blank. Athletic UCLA team. And I think a lot of it is just adjusting to oppose Matt fairly distance. I don't think we definitely gave him enough credit while he was here. He was so good at bringing the defense just a little bit over this way little bit over that way setting guys up for passes where they get wide open. Looks just by little looking up the defense and pump fakes those things. He did a good job orchestrating the offense. We're just missing a little bit of that. So far it will come with time and reps. But a lot of young guys out there. Jay Gibbs led the ACC in the regular season last year and three point percentage, but has struggled this year hands it off to Pflueger Pflueger, right? Sided shovels out to kids little miscommunication there Pflueger through it in the corner gives wasn't ready to go. They just had miscommunication. They both just took the blame for it. That's fine. Just don't do it. Again. Chips the ball back over to UCLA and the Bruins leading by four. Bring the ball up the floor the basketball now, it comes on over to Wilks Wilks throws, you Riley and Riley, bullying his way through Harvey and Harvey is going to be called for the foul. He didn't have position Harvey kinda got caught in no man's land. There were brain was telling him to take his char- ticket charges body wasn't imposition. The kind of just got caught got wax. A little insult injury. There Barbie taking the blow in the foul Soldo. Riley. You're gonna go to the line where he comes into the game. Just a fifty six percent free. Throw shooter UCLA has one for four from the line. So far tonight. I make a two for five. UCLA's led by as many as seven back at the thirteen fifty seven Mark Irish scored the first six points of the game. Have not led sense. Riley makes them both. Twenty six twenty six point UCLA lead three zero seven remaining first half of play one to two track. Fresh put on by UCLA breaks time with Enes pub with basketball hope between the circles dribbling to his left. Hot left byline extended. Download Mooney Mooney jumped looking the lane in and out. No luck. They're good shot. Good. Look, no luck. Now racing racing down the floor pulls it back out. Jay Leno, hands backup talk kitchen on ham Smith with the basketball up top Wilkes back. The hands shock locks cans now bound past the lane to Riley shocks. No good. And it's rebounded by Pflueger way. Too far down the floor up tries to save it does. But unfortunately, the Chris Smith.

Helping Don looney download reachable top of batted the ball back up the hills. Like the fans don't like to call a DJ hobbies leg. I gotta be honest. I didn't really see. But a good husband to did Harvey nonetheless UCLA's on a six or run up over the last four twenty one and they've only made one of their last eleven shots so help with the basketball right side drives down. Double pop is rejected by Riley in the hands of Pflueger. Now Harvey has he he fakes into the lane. His jumper is off the front of the rim. No, good rebound. Jalen hands hands will bring it up the court hands over the course, Dr hands top of the key brings it back out one forty five remaining, I Abbas play hands. Now with the basketball goes baseline shovels into the corner of the Wilks Wilks for three is good coach brash time out largest leaving for UCLA twenty nine twenty eight not happy with that last segment there. He's guys pretty hard. Right dabbagh. Jalen has just soak it keeping his head up keeping his dribble finding guys in the corner. And that's what he does. So you can only contain them so much still you can't get caught ball watch. Because that's what happened that time a Wilkes wide open mic one. I have never. Read this combination of stats before in my long career UCLA's on a nine zero run and they wanna make of their last twelve shots. It hasn't been a pretty offense of bear on either side of the story for both of these teams early on the season does not shooting the ball. Great from the field not group from distance, but certainly not for lack of trying lots of hustle out there, and you're right UCLA size shoot stack is so far in this game and Notre Dame joining wanted twelve shooting. I I'm convinced the shooting will come. But right now, they're going to have trouble beating quality competition. If they don't make shots when you're up against the physically superior team or Beth logically and size wise. You've gotta hit some shots for fourteen to three. Pflueger with the basketball Alberta hub is that fresh again. This is a two onto lake road ahead. The kids one thirty eight and a half Irish trailing by the basketball between his legs. Heads off to hop. Pop. Brings it back up top mid lane left side, moody, cross-court masses, complete to gives you dry to shoddy short and the rebound is pulled down by Jalen hill, Bill off to Jalen hands and over the course right between the circles. And now the Smith little league up chop hands gets it back hands. Now. On over to Smith. Smith, spins into the lane double tops off the glass around. Thirty one twenty first double digit lead of the night for the Bruins. Forty six seconds left. Pflueger over reports. Right. The kids. Get driving away troubles at Harvey for three too strong rebound, almost Jalen hill with a chain as you grabbed it raised the rim. Thirty one twenty six the respected clocks. Mulford? Reformer Indiana star many moons ago calls the use it or lose it time out. I can't fault Notre Dame's effort, but this is a work in progress. A young team it's figuring out on both ends and a physically superior UCLA teams. Also young and figuring it out, but their physical superiority is measured by doubling up. In the rebounding category. They've outrebounded hundred thirty four seventeen. Twelve offensive rebounds. And even the problem with rebounds or. Got second choice aside from the floor. The size athleticism is speeding up Notre Dame on the offense to the end as well. That kind of one-seat three quarter. The clock down half ports set and rushing everything that we have. So it's easier said than done dealing with. This is what we have to have guys is calm down a little bit and step into the south to accomplish right now. We're just which accused up trying to shoot without getting blocking shots are coming up pretty long. Jaylen hands bringing the ball over the midcourt strike twenty five and twenty respected clocks. She darnold. Try to go up by even more cans now and over the strip Chris goes top of the looking back to hand six shot clock throughout range from rally hands three layoff. Rebound mooning off to at six seconds five. I had to hop up. Dragon coast to coast blocked up against the backboard, by Riley. By mooney. Eleven thirty to twenty just tried to get up greatly blocked by violence. Got it back somehow loonies desperation shot from underneath the basket was no good. And they'll walk told me the truth. This is a physically imposing UCLA team. If you're gonna finish at the baskets night. I think you're gonna have to go with a dunk because if you put it up anywhere near that class there at least two flares ready to gobble it up, and that type Riley sizing it up snacking with the left hand practice. Probably thought he got all the way to the rack with that dry. But unfortunately, this is going to be a little bit tougher the score in and around the basket, very tricky and clever to part of the game plan was to limit UCLA and transition where they're very good officially UCLA has no fast-break points. So check back box. But a lot of other box checked by UCLA. If you're wondering about the shooting performance dangerous eight thirty five from the field. Twenty two point nine percent. Courtesy of Alan waza. Loose key. The worst of the Brera in the first half happened at uconn back in February of two thousand. And four eighteen point eight percent, six of thirty two. So a couple of field goals better than that tonight. But Notre Dame is Doug itself a bit of a whole so still an opportunity because UCLA's not lighting it up either. But I'm sure a supportive and at times stern locker room awaits the.

"Tonight between Notre Dame and UCLA and somehow would the importance of this series. I it seems even greater than that. And today, you had rich branding talk to your team. He was delighted to be here. Bill Walton doing the game tonight for TV took part as well. And really started to get the sense of the history of it because that is the floor that Walton played aren't and Jabbar. John wooden coach, you know, there is a lot to this series. And when I got the job twenty years ago, Jack people said what are we gonna play UCLA again? And it's a great series. Obviously the history and the tradition and rich branding was fabulous today with his message to our team. The other reason I had him speak as he's and how in the building. And I was trying to jump on some of his karma. But great matchup against a great program in a very talented team tonight and UCLA refer we really dive into that. Can you briefly summarize the wonderful story he told about a young kid to let him into a high school gym to work out and really gave him a run for his money. Rich. Branding was McDonald's all American from out here in Huntington beach, and he came to play in the capital classic in Washington DC, and I was a junior at damalf a high school coach. Guten Morgen Wooten ran the capital classic rich and his dad got in early. And we're looking for Jim to get shots up. And coach wooden said, hey, you know, you wanna hang out with rich brain and get a workout in. I saw my God. I'd be honored. And so I worked out with rich branding with his dad in the stands at Tabatha high school couple of days before the capital classic. And we struck up this friendship and crazy. It comes full circle. I'm coaching at his alma mater, and branding told the players today that this young kid was giving me we're playing one on one. He's making me work up a sweat. He's pretty good seriously. When you look at tonight, this may be one of the few teams, you play all your that younger than you nine of their ten guys are freshman sophomore. The flip side is I looked at the NBA draft dot com. Website, three of them are selected in the first round right now. Yeah, they are young and very very gifted, obviously, they have had to deal with the one and done situation out here. And they've got three of them that are first round picks. So a very gifted group, but like us a little bit younger. And and I think both teams are trying. To find themselves right now when you look at Oklahoma today beating Wichita state by thirty two points. It makes you never like a loss. But it makes you performance look even better the other night at Madison Square Garden and the one thing your team's not doing right now consistently issuing the ball. And they're all good shooters. You know, that's gonna come sooner or later. I really hope so Jack. And you're right. I, you know, impressed with Oklahoma score today. And and an older team that we battled and just couldn't finish. But I feel we will trend the right way offensively. I thought in the second half against Oklahoma. We found a little better offense and rhythm. And maybe we can get it for forty minutes tonight instead of twenty when you look at what you're going to have to do defensively tonight. What are the key is going to be well hands the point guard is just so good? And so creative and makes them go. So who's ever guarding them has to do a good job? And then who's ever guarding the ball screener that screens for him has to help? We we have to try and at least. I keep him out of the lane. Someone he gets in there and makes plays for everybody. Moses Brown big guy in the middle seven one. But you have somebody you can throw in there. I mean Mooney is going to be in there. And he does a good job in big guys. Now, you've got your on Durham who's got the same body tight. Well, yeah, we're excited about what you wander given us Jack the last two games, and we feel he's really moving in the right direction. And how he played in the garden were thrown into him in the post. I think one of the things we evolved into as we could throw it to the low post with Mooney in Durham in the second half. And we not necessarily felt we could do that all the time earlier in the year. So maybe that's a new strength of ours. Developing brilliant, scheduling on your part in you seldom promise a player anything. But you kind of did that you get Rex home. Rex told me today coming out of the shoot around pretty good thing that coach schedule this my senior year of my freshman year can send the twenties back home. My freshman. I probably would have stayed. But all kidding aside. You've dealt with this with Pat contin Rex going to have to. Hundred friends and family here tonight. And I don't care who you are. If you told me my entire family was gonna watch me call the game. It's in my head. So how do you help him deal with that? We've been talking all week since the Oklahoma game about I just want you to have fun and enjoy the moment and don't have the weight of the world, aren't and I will continually remind him of that throughout the game. You're right. That is really hard. When you bring somebody home. But the one thing I'm honored to bring him home. I'm so proud of him the winner that he has been in the role model. He's been in our program is is very impressive. You know, certainly if he's listening digger was such a great part of this in the great upset victory. The eighty eight game winning streak of UCLA.

"Good evening, everybody. And welcome to story Pauley pavilion on the campus of the university of California at Los Angeles U C L A for tonight's renewal of the legendary rivalry between the fighting Irish of Notre Dame and the Bruins of UCLA. I am jackdaw joined once again by activists who did play on this floor during his career. We will not dive deep into. That play off the word in what we played in word only in name, only, I suppose this is the forty ninth meeting between these two schools UCLA owns a twenty eight twenty advantage. Coach Bray has coached Notre Dame four times against UCLA is to and two and one the last time he brought the Irish onto this floor tonight quite a challenge spending time chatting with Bill Walton before the game. He's just raving about the size and athleticism of this Bruins team. If you go to NBA draft dot com MDA draft dot com. They have three of these UCLA players going in their mock draft in the first round of next year is NBA draft. Does your eye test live up to those accolades? I certainly when you talk about the athleticism and size that all checks out. Chris smith. Chris Wilkes and also Jalen hill who's gonna come off the bench. Jalen hill is going to be the best athlete. I think we've seen all year right now, he's putting his head above the rim on every donkeys doing a warm up. But a lot of these guys like you said they have the size that get to the basket they like to elevate. So certainly going to be a physical challenge for this young Irish team tonight and just in case you're wondering which of the players were listed on the NBA draft dot com, mock draft Jalen hands their starting point guard, Moses Brown, they're seven one center and Chris Wilkes. They're six eight sophomore forward from Indianapolis north central high school. So we've already kind of. Dived into the Bruins just a.

"To see from UCLA in Steve Alford this year, the legacy at UCLA with basketball, the athlete department. Overall mean I'm not talking about basketball football baseball, track field, volleyball, every sport that you could think of over there. They aim to succeed. And they went championships. They probably themselves on winning titles at UCLA. And you just recently came out with the book one hundred things UCLA fan should know. And do before they die fertile. Congratulations. I didn't speak with an author and second of all what are some of those things that UCLA fashion. No, you know, obviously, I hit all major highlights things like John wooden. Jackie Robinson, all eleven National Basketball championships. The national football championship in nineteen fifty four. And I tried to hit the high notes of all the greatest players and coaches, but for me part of the fun was on earth thing some real under the radar nuggets. Like there was this alumni basketball game between North Carolina and UCLA and in the summer of eighty six at Pauley Potvin. Alien were on the sideline you had not only John wooden, but you Dean Smith and the rosters were so incredibly stacked and this still blows my mind to this day that Michael Jordan had to come off the bench for North Carolina that game he was just getting into his NBA playing days. But still I mean just just to imagine that is really incredible. So that was a really fun one. And then, you know, UCLA had an eight overtime in soccer championship game at the king dome in the mid eighties that they won and that was fun to go back and look at that. And just the exhaustion and the incredible stamina that takes to do something like that. So you know, it was really a learning experience for me. And really enrich. You know, what I do is a beat writer a lot. Do you ever give flack from the university or leg department for some of the things you right? Oh, of course, you know, there's things that aren't always the most positive reflections of the university. But you know, that's part of the job. You know, you have to not only obviously highlight things that are going. Well, but things that are not going. Well, that's kind of my my job, right? As. Report and a beat writer. So if I'm not, you know, irking them every once in a while, I'm probably not doing my job as well as I should recently. You wrote about the concussion protocol at UCLA you spoke with Josh Rosen. Who's now the quarterback for the cardinals the NFL and how it seems like the UCLA medical staff is overly cautious. Where guys are saying. They're being cleared by the private doctors UCLA doctors saying, no, what was it like reading that kind of because now the five players out for the season because of concussions. Yeah. It was. It was interesting because they did have five guys out for the season with concussions and not just out for the season. These guys are out for the season by season. So they were basically shut down at a time. When there was a lot of football after play, and I went around and did some asking around the Pac twelve and it turned out. There was only one other player Pac twelve wide who had been shut down for the season at that point. And that was a defensive back at Washington. So, you know, I tried to get some more clarity from UCLA and got a lot of pushback know, they're very private as far as. Discussing players medical records. So I didn't get much from them. But you know, I got a former NFL doctor to talk about things that might lead to a season ending concussion football after play and the big ones were you know, repeated concussions and just not feeling better. And also not wanting to put yourself at increased risk because you know, we all know that players who suffer concussions are putting themselves at risk things like second impact syndrome, which can basically alter your life and everything about it for the rest of your life. So people don't want to do that. And I I will say UCLA's credit. I think that they really are airing on the side of caution in these situations and even talked to one of the running backs Paulo all around funny..

"So very happy to be back and he'll be my third season back on UCLA. Now when you say on the UCLA beat reporter, what does that mean, it means that I basically live on campus between going to football. Basketball practices. I going to the Rose Bowl for game. So fortunately, I live right across Wilshire from UCLA. So my commute is down to about five minutes a day, which is unbeatable. But yeah, I pretty much live on campus and follow all UCLA sports doesn't UCLA practice at six in the morning for football. That was more of a gym more thing. Now. It's fortunately ship is moved it up to eight forty five which is much better for the body clock. So I only need about two cups of coffee instead of five what's the deal with chip Kelly. You know, it's interesting. He's pretty much lived up to the reputation that he had kind of a no nonsense straight shooter. He really likes to parse questions and really tear down any kind of language that he thinks is imprecise or questions that he thinks are too obtuse hill, basically shut down the question just based on that. He's very lawyer like which is interesting because his father actually was a trial attorney. So I see that influence coming through. But you know, he's a straight shooter. He's been very fourth. Coming with some things like as far as guys being out for the season with injuries, and he loves really technical football question. So if you come with the good football questions, he'll sit there and talk to you, basically as long as you want, but he doesn't like being questioned. I mean, nobody does. Nobody does in this in this industry is which you do. Yeah. I mean, it is interesting that that's the thing about chip. Right. He just wants to do his thing. And he doesn't care about the perception. Whether it's the boosters or the media, he's going to do chip and and good or bad. We have to live with it. Didn't you write a big feature? And like a background of who chip Kelly is before the season started without talking to chip Kelly. Yes, I did. And I did manage to quote him from something he said a few years ago where he basically said that he was probably a pain in the ass as a kid because he kept asking why? And I thought that was pretty much the perfect, quote, the that encapsulates the chip Kelly experience. But yeah, I wrote a big three part series. Basically kind of looking at how he got to UCLA. A and what made him who he is. And his rise at Oregon and fall in the NFL, and it was a lot of fun because my great bosses in LA times sports -partment, let me go to New Hampshire. They let me go to Oregon which a lot of places can't afford these days. So I was very grateful for that. And they also gave me plenty of time to write it. So I was very happy without turned out. So you go to where ship Kelly grew up where he was coaching. And does he know you're working on the story? Oh, yes. In fact, he actually gave me a dinner recommendation, which I thought was pretty hilarious. It was the puritan back room, which was this kind of little guess a good way to say it would be kind of a low brow. But not in a it's not good way..

You're the Harlem river in one thousand nine hundred ninety six he left for UCLA. Middle of their problem is Lou bender where he went on to lead the Bruins to three consecutive national titles and an eighty eight and two record and quickly became the country's most dominant college basketball star gender rounded by white shirt. But the times were turbulent at the same time. He was becoming a top notch player. He was developing a social conscience deeply affected by the murder of Emmett till in Mississippi back in one thousand nine hundred eighty five here's Kareem in January two thousand eighteen and I wanted to understand why what did he do why did that happen to you know, just a kid in Mississippi? The thing is relatives. And he ends a bit. You know? So I just had to pay attention to what was going on. I started studying what was happening in the civil rights movement. He was also affected by the killing nine years later of another black boy James Powell in New York City setting off the Harlem riots of nineteen sixty four. So when Harry Edwards pulled together that group of black athletes for the express purpose of deciding whether to boycott, the nineteen sixty eight Olympic Games luau cinder was all for it. He said I have been walk. Down the street in Harlem and seeing police shooting at black people who were running away. And there was no consequence of that. We have to stand up at some point and say, no more Harry Edwards says the young L cinders remarks in Los Angeles made it clear that he was the one athlete in the room who was never going to Mexico City. It was very explicit. And to the point about his reasons for making the statement doing the International Olympic games L cinder received a standing ovation from the two hundred student athletes there, but back at UCLA, the young basketball sensation was also forming a very close relationship with his coach the legendary John wooden. Here's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in seventeen cockapoo from New York City who felt that I would go to UCLA and do very well playing basketball, and that's what it would be all about and coach wooden was able to make me become. I'm aware of so much more wooden a white mid westerner who had served during World War Two expected. His seven foot to center to join the US Olympic basketball team, the younger man respected, his coaches patriotism, but made it clear he wasn't going to Mexico City for me that was an especially sore issue. Dr king just been assassinated. I wasn't feeling very patriotic. Instead of practicing with the Olympic team luau Sinndar spent his summer in Harlem, working with operation sports, rescue teaching kids the importance of education at basketball clinics. I knew that I get criticized you went on the today show. He thought to talk about his work with the kids with sportscaster. Joe Garagiola, you suggested that I leave the country, you know, because I said at times America is not living up to its responsibilities all of its citizens, and he said, well, maybe you should go. Someplace else would followed was a firestorm of criticism, racial epithets and death threats in the end the boycott. Didn't happen. Ultimately, Harry Edwards told the athletes each should find his own method of protest, which is why we have the iconic black loved moment on the Olympic podium after the two hundred meter dash Howard Bryant is the author of the heritage black athletes a divided America. And the politics of patriotism, one of the first things that took place in nineteen sixty eight was this decision of what to do when we talk about tactics. Kareem Abdul Jabbar Lew Alcindor decided not to go to the Olympics. And he he was this. This whole thing was created around a boycott that never took place. Although he made sure that he did boycott even without the number one college player in the country, the US Olympic team took home its seventh consecutive gold medal in basketball from Mexico City still quietly activists the young player went onto an extraordinary career.
