Julian Edelman Reacts To Charles Barkley's Hilarious LaVar Ball Trolling

After Hall and Jaylin Walker were able to find their stroke to help claw the Flashes back to within single digits, the Bruins again went a run - this time a 10-2 margin - to extend their lead to a half-high 17 points. That leaves the performance of the superstar, Lonzo Ball, and quite frankly it wasn't too great. Perhaps no more did Barkley show his disapproval of LaVar Ball than yesterday when he was wearing a Kent State Jersey before the UCLA game.

Kent State carried its momentum into the second half.

Ball suffered the injury while attempting to catch a pass in midair and getting his legs cut under him. He was visibly uncomfortable, but he seemed to shake it off as he finished with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists.

Earlier in the week, Ball said, "If Charles thought like me, maybe he'd win a championship.I don't know what his basketball career was, but I'd put mine up against his". But, really, the margin was largely built on a 5-7 minute explosion of offense between the 10-minute and 2-minute marks in the second half. That same year, Jordan was dropping 35 points a night in the National Basketball Association en route to his first Most Valuable Player award. He has also picked up two fouls. UCLA is one of the top offensive teams in the nation, averaging 90.4 points per game while allowing 75.3 on defense. Although UCLA holds the height advantage, Hall's speed at the forward position will make it hard for the Bruins' forwards to defend him one-on-one. The Bearcats held teams to a.385 field goal percentage this season, which was good enough for the third-best of March Madness teams. He didn't shoot much against Kent State, but he was highly effective. After that, they did not trail Kansas State for one more second. So they will need to bring their "A" game. But can they keep up with an absurdly talented bunch from UCLA?

Iranian pilgrims to take part in Haj this year
In China, King Salman oversaw the signing of deals worth as much as $65 billion on the first day of his visit there on Thursday. China has had to tread a careful line, though, as it also has close relations with Iran.

All things considered, it seems a bit off for analyst Barkley to be openly rooting against one team to lose in a sport he's now covering, but Charles will be Charles.

Ball came out and played in the second half, but he was hurting coming out of halftime, according to truTV's telecast.

UCLA head coach Steve Alford said he doesn't think it's anything to worry about.

While Jackson's return boosted the Jayhawks, senior Frank Mason III proved as reliable as ever while scoring 22 points and adding eight assists on Friday.
