The UCLA MEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM were guests on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. Jay Leno: "Did you see ED O'BANNON last night? At one time he had five guys on him. Five guys hanging all over him! I don't know why they let those agents in the locker room after the game." UCLA Coach JIM HARRICK came out with the NCAA Trophy, which he reluctantly handed over to Leno.
