You have to wonder how much fatigue will factor into the Bruins' second-half play. Seven players in UCLA's eight-mean rotation hit double-digit minutes in the first half. Only five of Cincinnati's 11 players to see the floor hit double-digit minutes. The Bearcats also ended on an 18-2 run over the final 6:41 of the first half

Lonzo Ball said he thinks his brother LiAngelo's decision to leave UCLA "is a good decision." Ball said the entire family came to an agreement "that was the best thing for him." "I have been at UCLA but I didn't go through what he is going through," the Lakers point guard said of giving his input. "It is tough leaving whether he plays or not in their hands. You are just waiting to hear and just sitting around. So just trying to take action and that is what we did." Ball said he will support both his brothers, LiAngelo and LaMelo, if they end up going overseas to play basketball. "If they are over there, I wish them the best," Ball said. "And if they do go, it will be a family decision."
