As I have mentioned before I have always been a Manchester United fan. However, it looks like I am going to have make some room for Chelsea in my sports world. Chelsea is showing a lot of love to UCLA as a return favor for using our facilities:
The field was graded in order to lower the crown and the entire field was re-sodded at a cost of more than $150,000. In Pauley, the visitors locker room and the old soccer locker room were both re-carpeted and lockers which dated from the 1970s were removed and new lockers made of dark wood, with individual safes, were installed. The shower facilities were also renovated with a temporary wall that separated the older locker rooms removed. Those improvements added about $75,000 to the tab.
A new wall that will re-split the two locker spaces will likely be installed before the basketball season begins, but teams visiting Pauley Pavilion in the future can thanks Chelsea for a much nicer space to get ready to face the Bruins.
Moving on to hoops also from Perleman's blog the remaining Ben Ball tickets are selling like hotcakes.
Lastly, from ESPN a little note from Duke Vitale re. Davidson, our opponent in Wooden Classic:
