After dropping 28 points and grabbing 12 boards in UCLA's 92-75 victory over the UAB Blazers in the round of 32 on Saturday, Bruins forward Tony Parker was feeling good.

He was feeling so good, in fact, that he dropped a compliment on sideline reporter Allie LaForce during his postgame interview. After answering her final question, Parker turned his attention to LaForce's jewelry.

"Nice bracelet, by the way," he said.

His teammates should have no shortage of fun with that one.

Sorry, Tony, but the Ohio University alum is married. LaForce tied the knot with her long-time boyfriend, Los Angeles Angels pitcher Joe Smith, in January. 

Just so we all know what Parker was complimenting, LaForce tweeted out a picture of her bracelet after the interview made its way around the web: 

Parker also had some fun with the situation later on Saturday:
