Lonzo Ball was a major disappointment, especially in the second half. 10 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 blocks, 4 turnovers. Just 1-6 from three. Struggled defensively all night. Strangely passive at times. Not a great last impression for NBA scouts. Kentucky exposed his weaknesses. Still think he's a Top 3 pick.

De'Aaron Fox (39 points) carried Kentucky into the Elite Eight with an amazing effort against UCLA. Did it all in front of Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka, who might still pick Lonzo Ball if they have the chance but will leave Memphis knowing Fox was the best player on the court on Friday night.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Lonzo Ball was mediocre, Malik Monk was good -- and De'Aaron Fox was sensational. 39 points. Kentucky vs. UNC. Sunday. Final 4 on the line.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

De'Aaron Fox with a masterpiece tonight. 39 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 1 turnover, 13-20 shooting. Completely outplayed Lonzo Ball on both ends of the court. Speed, explosion, toughness, heart, great feel for the game. He's a consistent jumper away from being a monster in the NBA someday.

Vote: Who will be the next coach at Indiana?

UCLA head coach Steve Alford becomes an intriguing option to replace Tom Crean at Indiana now that the Bruins' season has come to an end.

Monk and Fox flowing against UCLA all night. Bruins had no answer for either player. Challenged the best offense in the Sweet 16 (Bruins were shooting 52.1 percent from the field entering Friday's game).

Imagine if Kentucky had Kobi Simmons instead of De'Aaron Fox? Cats went into summer couple years ago focused on Simmons, but changed course late and nabbed Fox.

Kentucky hurting UCLA with these second-chance opportunities. Difference in the game.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

De'Aaron Fox has clearly been the best player on the floor thus far. Love his willingness to play both sides of the ball.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

De'Aaron Fox (15 points, 2 boards, 1 assist, 1 steal) winning the head-to-head match-up v Lonzo Ball (6 points, 2 boards, 3 assists, 1 block) at the half. Kentucky up 36-33.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Before they went to the locker room, De'Aaron Fox looked at his teammates and said, "Let's do this, baby!" Confident crew right now. Great second half ahead. In the first game, UCLA pulled away after the break. Can the Bruins do it again?

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

When Malik Monk gets going, there aren't many in the country that can stop him. Seems to have awoken.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

It's not just Lonzo Ball's vision. It's that he puts the ball exactly where it needs to be for his teammates to be able to convert.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Two elite teams. But Bruins getting so much more from their bigs. And why has Malik Monk taken just 4 shots?

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

A few minutes ago, De'Aaron Fox glanced at Magic Johnson in the front row before a possession. Can't imagine what it's like for him and Lonzo Ball to play in front of a PG legend and NBA powerbroker.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Well, T.J. Leaf has decided he's going to attack Willis all game and see what happens. He's relentless right now. But UCLA enters second media timeout shooting just 35 percent from the field. Entered the Sweet 16 connecting on 52.1 percent of its shots in the NCAA tournament.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

Lonzo Ball (ranked No. 2 in our Top 100) & De'Aaron Fox (No. 6) both living up to hype early in this game ... what a loaded PG draft this year

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Crazy pace already in this game. But the Bruins are getting everybody involved. De'Aaron Fox has made some great plays but Wildcats need Malik Monk to snap his shooting slump.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

UCLA just ran onto the floor here at FedEx Forum. Not Lonzo Ball. He walked. No rush. Always relaxed. Huge moment for him and the other stars out here with Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka in the building.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

NBA scouts salivating over this UCLA-Kentucky matchup. 3 potential Top 7 picks (Lonzo Ball, De'Aron Fox, Malik Monk), 3 more potential 1st rounders (TJ Leaf, Bam Adebayo, Ike Anibogu) and a few potential 2nd rounders (Wenyen Gabriel, Aaron Holiday, Thomas Welsh, Isaiah Briscoe, Isaac Hamilton) make this the best NBA scouting game of the NCAA Tournament

Magic and Pelinka here in Memphis scouting Lonzo, Monk and Fox -- while no sign of Phil.
