UCLA basketball: Bruins give away Russell Westbrook-style glasses

Thursday was Westbrook night for the UCLA basketball program, and they went all out.

The Bruins gave away glasses that resemble the frames Westbrook routinely wears to fans that attended the evening's game against Arizona.

Take a look:

UCLA also made special posters and had an on-court ceremony at halftime to honor Westbrook, who was in the house along with his family.

To make what surely was already an amazing night for Westbrook even better, a few of his famous friends were in attendance to support him.

The game certainly was worthy of Westbrook's presence, as UCLA won on a last-second shot from Bryce Alford.
