Two Bruins Named To NBA All-Star Team

Feb. 4, 2011

The UCLA men's basketball program will be well represented in next weekend's NBA All-Star Game at Staples Center.

On Friday, it was announced that Kevin Love, 2008 Pac-10 Player of the Year and first-team All-American in 2008, had been added to the West roster in place of injured starter Yao Ming.

On Thursday, 2008 Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year Russell Westbrook had been announced as a member of the West team.

Love leads the NBA in rebounding, averaging 15.5 boards per game. He is also averaging 21.4 points per game (No. 16 in the league) while shooting .472 from the field, .439 from three-point range and .870 from the free throw line. He also has a league-high 43 double-doubles in 48 games.

Westbrook is averaging 22.4 points (No. 13 in the league), 5.1 rebounds, 8.5 assists (No. 8) and 1.9 steals per game (No. 4). He has accounted for 23 double-doubles and a league-high (tied with LeBron James) three triple-doubles.
