Dragovic, a 21-year-old senior forward on the UCLA basketball team, endured the type of year that most college athletes can only dream about. And by dream I mean nightmare.
About a year ago, Dragovic was arrested at his Los Angeles home in a domestic dispute involving his girlfriend (or then-girlfriend, if she was smart and didn’t run back to him, Rihanna style). He was taken into custody, posted $20,000 bail (Where are you getting your money, dude?), and was reinstated to the basketball program days later by head coach Ben Howland. Howland even went so far as to call Dragovic a ‘great kid’ in the aftermath of his incarceration.
