How UCLA basketball roster shapes up for 2016-17
How the Bruins look next season
Player; Pos.; Ht.; Yr.; Comment
Bryce Alford; PG; 6-3; Sr.; Often clutch, but led the team in shots despite 38.5% shooting. A leader but defense needs improvement.
Prince Ali; G; 6-3; So.; Averaged more than 10 minutes a game during nonconference games; didn’t reach double digits in minutes in last four games.
Noah Allen; G; 6-7; Sr.; His playing time increased as Ali’s responsibilities decreased.
Ike Anigbogu; C; 6-9; Fr.; Defense-minded big man is a skilled rebounder and shot blocker.
Lonzo Ball; G; 6-5; Fr.; Might be Alford’s most decorated recruit ever. Was the Naismith high school player of the year.
Gabriel Bell-Williams; G; 6-5; So.; Walk-on did not see game action in his first season.
Justis Bell-Williams; G; 6-4; So.; Like his brother, a walk-on who did not play in a game.
Jonah Bolden; F; 6-10; Jr.; A starter late in the season, but never developed into a scoring threat; averaged 4.6 points a game.
Gyorgy Goloman; F; 6-11; Jr.; Coaches raved about his improvement, but he never got going because of an injury that sidelined him two months.
Isaac Hamilton; G; 6-5; Sr.; Arguably UCLA’s most improved player. He was third in the Pac-12 Conference in scoring and is a capable defender.
Aaron Holiday; PG; 6-1; So.; The team’s steals and three-point percentage leader, Holiday contributed in all facets as a freshman.
T.J. Leaf; F; 6-10; Fr.; One of the highest-rated high school forwards in the nation, Leaf could solve UCLA’s power-forward issues.
Kobe Paras; G; 6-5; Fr.; A club teammate of Anigbogu and Leaf, Paras is a star in the Philippines and among Filipino-American basketball fans.
Alex Olesinski; F; 6-9; So.; Earned a surprising amount of playing time as a freshman but was overmatched at times.
Ikenna Okwarabizie; C; 6-9; Jr.; Junior-college transfer and scholarship player appeared in seven games without scoring.
Jerrold Smith; G; 6-0; Sr.; Walk-on appeared in eight games.
Wonder Smith; G; 6-1; So.; Walk-on did not appear in a game this season.
Thomas Welsh; C; 7-0; Jr.; Showed major improvement in his second season; now hoping to develop into a rim protector.
Alec Wulff; G; 6-3; Jr.; The only walk-on player to score this season, he finished with six points.
