UCLA BRUINS BASKETBALL EXPERIENCE:

The UCLA Bruins basketball team is one of the most storied programs in college history. The UCLA Bruins have the most NCAA Championships in the country. Famed Coach John Wooden took the team to 10 of those championships in just 12 seasons between 1964 and 1975. Seven of them were in a row between 1967 and 1973. Jim Harrick would come along in the '90s and take the team to another NCAA title in 1995.
UCLA Bruins basketball was begun in 1920. The UCLA Bruins have had a long line of successful coaches with Fred Cozens, John Wooden, Gary Cunningham, and Larry Brown. The UCLA Bruins have sent many notable players on to play in the NBA, including Gail Goodrich, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Kiki Vanderweghe, Reggie Miller, and Baron Davis, just to name a few.
The UCLA Bruins play their home games at Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, California. The arena holds almost 13,000 spectators. Watch a home game at Pauley Pavilion and you'll see fans line up to get John Wooden's autograph - he attends every home game. It's an experience that strikes awe into the heart of any basketball fan.

UCLA Bruins Basketball 1 1
The Wizard of Westwood With the passing of the all-time greatest coach (perhaps in all of sport) John Wooden just a few months ago, UCLA Basketball lost the man who made the program what it is today. But the 11 National Title banners still remain. The court is named after Wooden and his wife Nelle. The aura remains, and Head Coach Ben Howland, perhaps more than any other UCLA successor to Wooden, has completely embraced the tradition. Wooden's footprint has long been on the program and will remain for many years to come. Pauley Pavillion is a place of champions. Step into the building and you can touch, taste, smell, hear, and feel greatness. 2010-2011 is a year for UCLA Basketball which will be dedicated to John Wooden, and appropriately it will be one of Howland's most talented squads since he's been at UCLA. Howland just needs a little John Wooden magic to put it all together and create a Wooden-type winner. August 10, 2010
