LOS ANGELES, CA -- UCLA's Kevin Love is NBA-bound. The All-American freshman announced Thursday that he'll skip his final three college seasons and enter the NBA draft.
Love led the Bruins in scoring (17.5 points) and rebounds (10.6)
on the way to a 35-win season and a trip to the Final Four, where
UCLA lost to Memphis.
Scouts have projected Love to be a top-10 pick in the June 26
draft, according to his coach Ben Howland.
Love made the announcement at a campus news conference Thursday afternoon, joined by Howland and Love's father, Stan Love.
