08:20 AM ET 12.28 | UCLA's track record in keeping promising players hasn't been stellar over the past few years, leading many to wonder whether Tony Parker's recent tweets would spell his own departure. Reached by phone Thursday afternoon, Miller Grove High School coach Sherman White acknowledged Parker is "not happy about not playing" but described that as a healthy response and insisted the freshman doesn't intend to transfer. Ben Howland said on a teleconference with reporters Wednesday afternoon that Parker has asked for more playing time, but the UCLA coach told him only to "keep working hard" and "keep competing." ... The likelihood of Parker's playing time increasing dramatically anytime soon seems slim barring injury since UCLA is entering a particularly tough stretch of the schedule.

UCLA's basketball record so far this year is 9-3!!! If you call that a "SORRY" Bruin team, then I guess it is what it is!!!! :-)
