UCLA coach Steve Alford: Gyorgy Goloman is playing as strong as ever

UCLA coach Steve Alford has altered the team’s starting lineup this year. That adjustments have directly affected Gyorgy Goloman. Despite a fluid change in roles, Alford believes Goloman is having the best season of his career.

“GG is playing as confident, he’s playing as strong (as ever),” Alford said, per  Thuc Nhi Nguyen of the Los Angeles Daily News. “He’s rebounding now in his area, which we’ve really been wanting him to do, and he’s shooting the basketball at a high level, so he’s starting to, I think, add to what we want to do.”

Goloman had a career week in Arizona last week. He scored a career-high 16 points against Arizona and tied a career-best mark of 7 rebounds versus Arizona State.

The 6-foot-11 forward is averaging 7 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist in his senior year.

Goloman had an important role with the Bruins whether he’s starts or comes off the bench when UCLA goes small.

UCLA should make the NCAA Tournament in Goloman’s final collegiate season. He wants to continue his basketball career after college. The forward is a long shot to make the NBA but he does have plans on playing in overseas.
