UCLA-Shanghai Sharks Game to be Televised on Pac-12 Networks Wednesday

Aug. 28, 2012

Tuesday's UCLA men's basketball exhibition contest against the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks on Wednesday, Aug. 29. The game will air immediately following the 7:00 pm. PT women's volleyball match between UCLA and the Jiangsu Chinese Team.

"There is a lot of excitement about the UCLA basketball program, and this is a unique opportunity for the Pac-12 Networks to be the first to showcase this dynamic Bruins team when they face off with the world-renowned Shanghai Sharks," Pac-12 Enterprises President Gary Stevenson said.

The new-look Bruins, who feature eight underclassmen and only one senior, wrapped up their three-game basketball tour in China averaging better than 93 points per game, including 22.3 from Travis Wear and 15.3 and 12.0 from freshmen Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson, respectively.

The Shanghai Sharks, a playoff team last year in the Chinese professional league, are best known as the team that developed former NBA star Yao Ming, who bought the team in 2009. The Sharks are led by former Sacramento Kings guard Liu Wei, who was also a member of the Chinese Olympic team in London.

Roxy Bernstein will handle play-by-play duties on the taped broadcast, while former UCLA great Don MacLean provides color commentary.
