UCLA joined by Nevada, New Mexico, Washington

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- UCLA will make its third straight
appearance in the John R. Wooden Classic basketball doubleheader in
December.

The Bruins will play Nevada in the second game; New Mexico will
play Washington in the first game on Dec. 10 at Anaheim Arena.

UCLA is 5-3 in the event named for its former coach who won a
record 10 national championships. New Mexico previously played the
event in 1997, losing to the Bruins. Nevada and Washington are in
the event for the first time.
