“As a coaching staff, we’re all extremely pleased at how hard our guys have been working since preseason practice began a couple weeks ago,” Alford said. “Our team is excited to be back on the court and is committed to getting better each and every day. By opening practice, we have a great opportunity to share this work ethic with our loyal fans and alumni while giving them a behind-the-scenes look at just what it takes to be a member of the UCLA men’s basketball team.”

Fans will be able to enter Pauley Pavilion beginning at 2:30 pm and Coach Alford will address the crowd at the beginning of practice. Seating will be available on the north side of the court in sections 101-103. Fans will also have opportunities to collect the 2013-14 UCLA men’s basketball team poster and schedule card.
