UCLA coach Ben Howland says All-America Kevin Love and teammate Darren Collison have not yet decided whether they will make themselves available for the NBA draft. Howland dismissed a report on the Los Angeles Times' Web site that said the players had decided to leave and were expected to hire agents, which would prevent them from returning to the Bruins. "It's an erroneous report," Howland said, adding that both players were upset about the report because they have yet to discuss their future with their families.

For the 76ers, the next stop on the off-season trail is the NBA draft, on June 25. The Sixers have the 17th pick. Even with the pending addition of shooter Jason Kapono , general manager Ed Stefanski said the team still planned to select either a point guard or a shooting guard, based on which position had the most talented player remaining on the board. Stefanski said that head coach Eddie Jordan , hired just over a week ago, was committed to drafting a guard. "He's more concerned with the best player at one of those spots," Stefanski said.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - For a city that prides itself on glamour and glitz, Los Angeles might have a tough time getting used to this UCLA basketball team. The Bruins play neither pretty nor flashy. What they do is win, and that's what it's all about, after all. They won again last night, 64-55, over Pittsburgh, in a West Regional semifinal at HP Pavilion. UCLA (29-5) will face Kansas in the regional final tomorrow. This one - especially in the second half - had all the fluidity of a drunk trying to recite the alphabet.

Brandon Rush made a successful early return from ACL surgery, scoring seven points and giving No. 4 Kansas a physical and emotional lift in an otherwise routine 92-60 rout of visiting Washburn. Rush, the 6-6 All-Big 12 guard who had planned to be flashing his moves in the NBA this year before injuring himself in a practice game in May, was 3-for-5 from the floor and also had three rebounds in 12 minutes, all in the first half. Wearing a heavy brace on the right knee, the Jayhawks' leading scorer each of the past two seasons went hard to the floor twice and appeared to be fine.
