Bill Walton Rips Donald Trump, And Other Amazing Stuff That Happened At Pauley Pavilion On Thursday
The planets must have been aligned just right on Thursday evening in Westwood, because some extremely bizarre behavior was going down at Pauley Pavilion during UCLA's Pac-12 men's basketball game with Oregon. It was kind of the college sports version of a trip to Narnia.
Let's run down the drama/weirdness:
1. Bill Walton Takes Jab At Trump
Walton, who really needs to be declared a National Monument at this point, let it be known where his political sentiments lie. It should also be noted that he wore a UCLA t-shirt while broadcasting a UCLA game.

2. Cheerleader hits the floor hard -- twice
What are the odds? UCLA cheerleader Sophie Lellis-Petrie should know -- she's a senior statistic major. First shell fell off of a human pyramid during a cheer routine, then as a medical staffer was rushing her off the court to seek treatment, he tripped and slammed her into the hardwood once again. (She's OK).
Kind of reminds one of this:
3. Dillon Brooks is good at basketball

This is the end ... UCLA mascot drops his shorts and moons Oregon's Jordan Bell during this free throw attempt late in the game. The tactic failed, but the Bruins held on to win the game 82-79.
5. Lonzo Ball shops downtown

The oldest of the Ball brothers (his youngest brother, LaMelo, scored 92 points for Chino Hills High in a game on Tuesday), hit a 30-foot 3-pointer with 32 seconds to play to give UCLA the winning margin. He's just a freshman.
So if you attended this game and didn't get your money's worth, I really can't help you here.
