Never mind that UCLA coach Ben Howland could be aging faster because 11 of his team's last 15 games have been decided by 10 points or fewer. Kevin Love, the second-youngest player on the team, doesn't know how many more close ones he can handle. "I'm getting a few gray hairs now," the freshman joked on Friday. "I'm 19 going on 67-years-old right now."

Love and his teammates may have enjoyed a pro-UCLA crowd last night but the center said he's seen fans and opposing players "showing no love to Kevin Love" and that a lot people just don't like the Bruins. "They're calling us the Duke of the West Coast," he said. "We're like the Spartans out there in [the movie] 300. We're going against everybody." And how does Love feel about being compared to Duke? "Aw, that's an insult man," he said with feigned disgust.
