Tonight, the UCLA Bruins play their last non-conference game of the season when they host the Western Michigan Broncos at Pauley Pavilion.
It will be a rather interesting, if not uncomfortable, occasion as former UCLA coaches Larry Farmer and Steve Lavin will be in the building along with current UCLA coach Steve Alford. Farmer will be there as an assistant coach for Western Michigan and Lavin as an analyst for the Pac-12 Networks.
Of course, Farmer earned his place in UCLA history as the only player to participate in all the games for the UCLA teams which went 89-1 before spending three seasons as head coach. Despite having a .726 winning percentage, Farmer’s teams missed the NCAA Tournament in two of his three seasons and only went as far as the Second Round in the other one. He’s also the Bruin coach who famously told Magic Johnson to hold off on visiting UCLA because the Bruins were more interested in Albert King.
It would certainly be interesting to be a fly on the wall of a conversation between Farmer, Lavin and Alford.
Here’s how to watch, listen, and stream tonight’s game.
