LOS ANGELES (AP) UCLA's men's basketball team has yet to practice in Pauley Pavilion, more than 2 1/2 months after the historic arena was flooded by a water main break near campus.
The Bruins have been practicing in the nearby Student Activities Center, which has a smaller-sized court than Pauley. The flood on July 30 ruined the hardwood floor in Pauley, along with the team's locker room, training and weight rooms. The arena underwent a $136 million upgrade two years ago.
Workers are expected to have completed the cleanup work and installation of a new court in time for the Bruins' exhibition game against Azusa Pacific on Oct. 31.
