Here's a really nice NYT feature on UCLA freshman center Kevin Love that makes me like him even better. Being in Southern California rather than Oregon, where he spent most of his life, he says he's finally comfortable enough to say he loves the music of the Beach Boys, in which his uncle Mike Love played and sang. Mike Love may not have been the (tortured) genius Brian Wilson was, but at concerts it always seemed to me he was the Beach Boy having the most authentic Beach Boys fun.
The Bruins play No. 16 seed Mississippi Valley State on Thursday. Hope they don't overlook them.
