Ben Bolch of the L.A. Times sat down with UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero on Thursday afternoon for a wide-ranging interview on the state of Bruin athletics. The focus was mainly on Jim Mora’s football program and fundraising and facility upgrades made during Guerrero’s tenure in The Morgan Center.

As the Bruins prepare for their rematch against top-ranked Kentucky in Lexington tomorrow, we have a couple of previews worth noting. Eamon Brennan has a very Ball-centric preview, noting that while the Bruins have started off hot, they haven’t seen anything like the Wildcats yet.

Kyle Boone at previews the match up from more of a Kentucky point of view. John Calipari's team has won every game by at least 20 this year.

And if you haven’t heard yet, on Wednesday night while Lonzo Ball was setting a program record for assists in a game by a freshman, his little brother LiAngelo put up 72—yes, 72—in a high school game.

UCLA baseball coach John Savage was named the manager of the 2017 Collegiate National Team by USA Baseball on Thursday. The Bruin baseball team is still in off-season mode until February.
