LOS ANGELES - UCLA's 2006-07 men's basketball schedule has been finalized and there have been some changes to accommodate the Pacific-10's television schedule.

The dates affected are all involving Pac-10 games. The first date that has changed is the Bruins' home game against Washington, which has been moved from Dec. 30 to Dec. 31. UCLA's game at Stanford, originally slated for Jan. 27, has moved to Jan. 28. Additionally, the last three weeks of the Pac-10 schedule has changed, with the dates remaining the same, but the opponent flip-flopping with the travel partner scheduled for that week.

On Feb. 15, UCLA will be at Arizona State followed by a Feb. 17 visit to Arizona (instead of Arizona then Arizona State). On Feb. 22, the Bruins will host California and then host Stanford on Feb. 24. The last change involves the final regular season games, which finds the Bruins at Washington State on March 1 then at Washington on March 3.

The Bruins will make four nationally or regionally televised appearances on CBS in 2006-07 and will have 25 of their 30 regular season games televised, with another three games possibly televised as wildcard selections. UCLA will have 10 contests broadcast live nationally on Fox Sports Net as part of the Pac-10 package (FSN Prime Ticket in Los Angeles) and an additional eight games televised on FSN Prime Ticket (UCLA's local package).

The nonconference schedule is highlighted by contests in the EA Sports Maui Invitational and the Wooden Classic, along with a trip to Morgantown to play Big East foe West Virginia and a home game against Michigan of the Big 10.

At the 23rd annual EA Sports Maui Invitational (Nov. 20-22/Lahaina Civic Center), every game will be televised by the ESPN networks, including the Bruins' opening round game against host Chaminade. UCLA will then face either Kentucky or DePaul. The top half of the bracket includes Georgia Tech, Memphis, Oklahoma and Purdue. This will be UCLA's third appearance in Maui (2001/1995).

In the 13th annual Wooden Classic on Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, UCLA will play Big 12 opponent Texas A&M (11:30 a.m. PST/CBS). This will be UCLA's fourth consecutive Wooden Classic appearance and 10th overall (6-3 record). Last year, the Bruins defeated Nevada, 67-56 in the Wooden Classic.

The Bruins open the 2006-07 season at home in Pauley Pavilion vs. Mountain West opponent Brigham Young (Nov. 15, Prime). The UCLA/BYU game will be the schools' first meeting since 1988-89 (BYU leads the series 11-10).

UCLA, the defending Pac-10 regular season and Tournament champion, opens defense of its conference crown in late December, hosting the Washington schools in Pauley Pavilion (Dec. 28-Washington State/ Dec. 31 Washington).

In all, there are 11 teams on UCLA's 2006-07 schedule that last year advanced to postseason play - eight in NCAA play (Kentucky, Memphis, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Washington, Arizona and California) and three from the NIT (BYU, Stanford and Michigan).

In 2005-06, UCLA advanced to the NCAA Championship game (losing to Florida, 73-57), finished 32-7 overall and 14-4 in the Pac-10. The Bruins set the school record for most games played (39) and tied a school record for most wins (32, with UCLA's 1995 NCAA Championship team that finished 32-1).
