It’s safe to say that Lavar Ball became the villain of the NCAA Tournament with his many brash statements.
Ball, the father of UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball, managed to draw hate from the likes of Kirk Herbstreit AND Stephen A. Smith. And his son’s UCLA struggled down the stretch, Twitter had no problem taking countless shots at the older ball.
It also didn’t helped the at Lonzo was thoroughly outplayed by Kentucky point guard De’Aaron Fox. Fox finished the game with a career-high 39 points and 4 assists while Ball finished with just 10 points and 8 assists. And Ball’s team was stuck with the season ending loss, as Kentucky won 86-75.
So needless to say fans had plenty to say about Lavar Ball’s brash ways.
LaVar got some explaining to do
