The taunts coming from the Western Kentucky cheering section didn't seem to bother Kevin Love.
One fan in particular had been shouting at the UCLA freshman all game. "I've been in your head this half, Love," the fan yelled as time ran down during the second half (Never mind that Love scored 14 of his team-leading 29 points during the second half.).
The Bruins center made eye contact with the heckler before UCLA wrapped up its 88-78 win, lingering at the Western Kentucky end of the floor. "I figured I'd just let him get his two cents in," Love said in the locker room after the game. "I just look at those types of fans and smile."
And if you're wondering why Love is the only Bruins player sporting predominately powder-blue shoes instead of predominately white shoes with powder-blue toes, it's because he wears a size 19. "These are the only shoes they could get for me that fit," he said with a chuckle.
