UCLA Men’s Basketball
Because the NBA Draft is just only two rounds, the road to the NBA must go through the NBA Summer League for a lot of players. Bryce Alford and Isaac Hamilton are two guys who will hope to catch a team’s attention by playing in the Summer League. Alford will play for the Warriors’ Summer League team with former UCLA teammate and NBA Champion Kevon Looney while Hamilton will play for the Pacers’ Summer League team where he will probably join TJ Leaf and Ike Onigbogu.
Meanwhile, the incoming freshmen have arrived on campus.
UCLA Women’s Basketball
The UCLA Women’s Basketball non-conference schedule has been announced. The team opens up at home against San Jose State on November 10th. After hosting Presbyterian College on November 12th, UCLA will welcome two of the top teams in women’s college basketball to Pauley Pavilion when Baylor visits on November 18th and UConn visits on November 21st. That’s about as a tough schedule as a schedule can get. The only way to make it tougher would be throw in defending champs South Carolina.
