UCLA will host the 11th Annual Pioneer Electronics Bruin Classic, Mar. 11-13, at the Menifee Lakes Country Club. The event will feature several of the nation's top 50 ranked women's collegiate golf teams, including defending champion Pepperdine.

Menifee Lakes Country Club, which will host the tournament for the eighth straight year, will play to a par of 72 over 6,019 yards.

The format includes a 36-hole shotgun start on Mon., Mar. 12 beginning at 8 a.m. On Tues., Mar. 13, play begins at 8:30 a.m. with an 18-hole shotgun start.

Third-ranked USC enters the 18-team tournament as the top-ranked team, followed by No.10 Pepperdine, No. 18 UCLA, No. 21 Oklahoma and No. 23 New Mexico. California (No. 26) Texas A&M (No. 41), Nevada (No. 46) and San Diego State (No. 47) complete the group of ranked teams.

USC has won one tournament this season and features sophomore Candie Kung, ranked No.2 nationally. The Waves have finished among the top ten in all seven of their appearances. Pepperdine sophomores Lindsey Wright and Katherine Hull are ranked 11th and 13th, respectively.

Wright is the defending individual champion, winning last year's event by one stroke over UCLA's Leilani Bagby and Texas A&M's Mimi Epps. All three players return to compete in this year's event.

Other ranked players among the top 50 are: USC's Leila Chartrand (No. 15), Nevada's Angie Yoon (No. 39) and USC's Mikaela Parmlid (No. 45).
