Lonzo Ball Was Raining 3s Against Cincinnati

David McCrackenFeatured ColumnistMarch 20, 2017

UCLA freshman Lonzo Ball may have an unorthodox shooting stroke, but it sure goes in the basket a lot.

Ball was outstanding for the Bruins in the second round of the NCAA tournament, as he scored 18 points, dished out nine assists and grabbed seven boards in UCLA's 79-67 victory over Cincinnati.

Ball, who is a pass-first point guard, showcased his scoring ability in the second half when he took over scoring for a period of the game, raining down three-pointers from past NBA range, converting 4-of-7 from deep.

Ball is the real deal, and UCLA will need this type of game from him as it takes on Kentucky in the Sweet 16.
