Kentucky took down Lonzo Ball and UCLA in the Sweet 16 on Friday night.
As has been the theme of this season, the attention was given to Lonzo's dad, LaVar Ball, after the Bruins' loss to UK.
Twitter savaged the infamous sports' dad, and to be fair, he had it coming. Here are some of the highlights.
This....was surely a massive L.

We have an early winner. I think I understated how much we were really looking forward to this.
LaVar might be joining KD in Golden State after this one. Talk about a rough L.
At least he didn't blow a 3-1 lead? There's a word to describe LaVar Ball...what would that be? Mr. President?

Yup, that's it.
But, alternative facts may win this one. Are we sure UCLA lost?

LaVar is taking drastic measures after this L.

Okay we're joking.
Although we have to make sure LaVar didn't pull a fast one on us.

Remember when he called Kentucky a tune-up game? Yikes.

Although, to his credit, LaVar is now considering an alternate shoe contract for his sons. it's not nearly as lucrative, though.

Frankly, there's a simple explanation for all of this.
Ball Did Lie. (LaVar, that is)— Fran Fraschilla (@franfraschilla) March 25, 2017
Yes, yes it did. LaVar might be tough to reach after this one, though.
Lavar Ball to the whole nation... "New phone, who dis?"— jaclyn te Velde (@jaclynnleahh) March 25, 2017
In fact, he's going into hiding.
For now, you'll only be able to find him on Jeopardy.
For real, though, De'Aaron Fox had himself a game. Maybe all that smack talk played a role?

But don't count out UCLA just yet.

So you're saying there's a chance? No, I'm not saying that at all.
