UCLA’s basketball team will travel the country
« on: June 13, 2017, 04:49:50 PM »
UCLA’s basketball team will travel the country — and to China — as part of a nonconference schedule announced Friday. ;D

The Bruins are set to open the season against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on Nov. 10 before playing their first home game Nov. 15 at Pauley Pavilion against Central Arkansas. UCLA is also to compete in the Hall of Fame Classic Nov. 20 21 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. https://www.uclabasketballjersey.com/alex-olesinski-jersey-c-1.html, as part of a four team field that also includes Wisconsin, Creighton and Baylor.

UCLA is scheduled to play Michigan in Ann Arbor on Dec. 9 and Kentucky at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Dec. 23 as part of the CBS Sports Classic. The Bruins have gone 2 1 against the Wildcats over the last two seasons, most recently losing to them in an NCAA tournament regional semifinal.

“When we assemble our schedule each year, we’re trying to prepare our guys for the grind of Pac 12 play and, ultimately, for the NCAA Tournament,” UCLA coach Steve Alford said in a statement released by the school. “When you look at the teams we’re going to play, combined with the travel involved, we believe that this is a tough nonconference schedule.”

The Bruins’ schedule includes eight nonconference home games, including Cincinnati on Dec. 16 in a rematch of an NCAA tournament second round game in March that UCLA won by 12 points.

The UCLA Athletic Department announced the Men’s Basketball 2017 2018 non conference schedule today.

The non conference season will begin in Shanghai, China against Georgia Tech on Friday, November 10, and includes eight home games. The CBS Sports Classic played in back in December in Vegas is scheduled for December 23 vs. Kentucky in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the team will also play in two Hall of Fame Classic games in Kansas City https://www.uclabasketballjersey.com/lonzo-ball-jersey-c-2.html, Missouri on November 20 and 21.

UCLA faced two of this year’s non conference opponents, Cincinnati and Kentucky, in last season s NCAA tournament.
