UCLA Officials Unsure Of Pauley Pavilion's Near-Term Availability Following Campus Flood
Published July 30, 2014
NEEDING TO REASSESS THINGS: UCLA AD Dan Guerrero in a text message wrote that UCLA staff would "reassess" Pauley Pavilion's condition this morning. He wrote, "I'm confident we will play at home this season." ESPN L.A.'s Myron Medcalf notes workers "used sandbags to try to stop the water from flowing into Pauley Pavilion as the sudden rush caused campus officials to scramble their resources" (ESPNLA.com, 7/30). UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said, "It's painful. It's painful. We just refurbished Pauley just a few years ago." Administrative Vice Chancellor Jack Powazek said that the school "may need to make contingency plans, but 'luckily we're not in the middle of basketball season" (AP, 7/30).
