Lonzo Ball set the record for assists by a freshman at UCLA on Wednesday night, and it did so in the most Lonzo Ball fashion possible.
After the Bruins came up with a loose ball and Ball had a look at a wide open layup, he dumped the ball off to T.J. Leaf – whose hustle had earned the Bruins possession – for the dunk:
Ball now has 183 assists on the season, breaking Pooh Richardson’s record of 179 assists by a freshman. He’s on pace to have a shot at the UCLA record of 256 assists in a single season which is held by Larry Drew II.
