UCLA head coach Steve Alford makes halfcourt shot during practice (VIDEO)


Before playing in this season’s Battle 4 Atlantis, UCLA had practice and had some fun by taking half-court shots. As a former national champion and decorated player, head coach Steve Alford buried one of his own.

The No. 22 Bruins open up the tournament against Oklahoma at 2:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday. Steve Alford won’t be eligible to play, but his son Bryce and his teammates will be in for a good first-round matchup.
