Boys' basketball: UCLA makes offer to Parker Cartwright

July 11, 2011 | 11:06 am

UCLA has pulled the trigger and offered a scholarship to sophomore-to-be Parker Cartwright, a 5-foot-9 point guard at Los Angeles Loyola, his father, Ramon, confirmed on Monday.

"We're very happy," his father said. "This is just the beginning of the hard work."

Cartwright was a standout as a freshman at Loyola. He's in South Carolina playing in a tournament. He's expected to pick up other scholarship offers, but UCLA is considered the favorite to land Cartwright.
