Howland out at UCLA after 10 seasons

LOS ANGELES — UCLA fired Ben Howland on Sunday night after 10 seasons as Bruins coach that included three Final Four appearances but culminated with another early exit from the NCAA Tournament.

Athletic director Dan Guerrero told Howland earlier in the day that he was out.

Howland was 233-107 in Westwood, including consecutive Final Four appearances from 2006-08 and four Pac-12 championships, including this season. The Bruins' season ended Friday with an 83-63 loss to Minnesota.

"I have been blessed with the opportunity to coach at UCLA for 10 years," he said in a statement through the university. "The UCLA community and fans have been unbelievable to my family and I, and it's been an honor and privilege to represent this great institution. I look forward to what comes next."

GEORGE MASON TO A-10: George Mason is joining the Atlantic 10 next season, the Associated Press reported. The Patriots, currently in the Colonial Athletic Association, have called a news conference for this afternoon, and the Atlantic 10 has scheduled a teleconference shortly afterward.

NIT: Justin Anderson scored a career-high 18 and top-seeded Virginia (23-11) won its 19th straight home game, 68-50 against St. John's (17-16) in the second round.
