UCLA to play first game in Pauley Pavilion vs. Indiana State

CBSSports.com wire reports

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA will play its first basketball game in the renovated Pauley Pavilion against Indiana State on Nov. 9 in a nod to the roots of late Bruins coaching great John Wooden.

Indiana State was the only other university where Wooden served as a head coach. He had a 44-15 record in two seasons in Terre Haute before leaving for Los Angeles. Wooden was a native of Martinsville, Ind. He died in 2010 at 99.

The arena is undergoing a $136 million renovation to bring it up to date. The changes include new locker rooms, lounges, a video room, concession stands and restrooms, seats, a scoreboard and 30-inch LED ribbon boards encircling the building's interior, along with displays showing UCLA's athletic history.

After the opener, the Bruins will host two games in the Los Angeles regional of the 12-team Legends Classic, which will conclude at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
