Analysis

  • How Will The Traveling Roadshow Affect The Home Court-Less Bruins?: “In 112 days the UCLA traveling roadshow of 2011-2012 will begin. Pauley Pavilion is under construction so the Bruins will play 18 “home” games in two different arenas that are a combined 60 miles from Westwood. That doesn’t bode well for the kind of support and atmosphere that makes college basketball so special. That’s not a criticism of the arenas that the Bruins will be playing in, the Morgan Center, the students, the alumni or the fans. It’s just a reality of having to play a season on the road.” (Bruins Nation)
