Default Trevor Ariza spent the lockout taking classes

New Orleans Hornets forward Trevor Ariza returned to school.

Thanks to the 149-day NBA lockout, Ariza now finds himself three hours closer to a degree from UCLA, thanks to the American History class he successfully completed in Westwood — with a B-plus, thank you very much.

“Just one; got to ease back into that,” Ariza said of course work, which he left behind at UCLA in 2004 when he turned pro after one year of college. He was playing as a 19-year-old off the bench for the Knicks, who made him a second-round pick. “It was History 140D, Professor Corey.

“It was great. B-plus is good. I’ve been out of school for eight years. To go back and get a B-plus, that’s big for me. It was like starting all over again. You’ve got to put time in, just like you work at your job, or in basketball or whatever. You’ve got to put your time in, study, take notes in class, talk to the teacher. Try to find out all the information you can.”
