Sept. 25, 2007
LOS ANGELES - The UCLA Athletic Department has finalized its men's basketball schedule for 2007-08, which is highlighted by 26 televised games on five different networks, including the possibility of two more games to be televised.
The Bruins will make 13 appearances as part of the Pacific-10 Conference's television package with Fox Sports Net; eight national or regional telecasts on FSN, three on CBS and one each on ABC and ESPN. UCLA has two additional opportunities for exposure when wildcard selections are announced on Feb. 25, 2008.
In addition to the Pac-10's FSN package, eight more games will be televised locally as part of the Bruins' package on FSN Prime Ticket and FSN West in Los Angeles.
Additionally, the Bruins will make four more appearances on the ESPN family of networks in conjunction with the CBE Classic on Nov. 12-13 and Nov. 19-20 (ESPN2 or ESPNU).
KCAL will be televising the Wooden Classic contest against Davidson in Honda Center on Dec. 8.
UCLA, the defending back-to-back regular season Pac-10 champion, opens defense of its conference crown in early January at Stanford (Jan. 3). The 2008 Pac-10 Tournament, featuring all 10 teams, will once again be held at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles (March 12-15).
While all but one game time has been set, the schedule is tentative and subject to change.
