Wake Of The Flood: UCLA AD Says Pauley Pavilion Will Be Ready For Basketball Season
Published July 31, 2014
OPEN THE CHECKBOOK? Asked if the city of L.A. would be footing the bill for repairs, Guerrero said, "I couldn’t answer that. I don’t know. I would certainly like athletics to not have to foot any of the bill, and I don’t believe we will." He added that insurance "could cover the costs." In L.A., Chris Foster notes the UCLA men's basketball team hosts Azusa Pacific in an exhibition game Oct. 31, and the women’s team plays Westmont at home Nov. 2. The home opener for women’s volleyball is Sept. 23, but the team "was already scheduled to play most of its matches in the Wooden Center this season." That court was also damaged, but Guerrero said that it "was minimal." Drake Stadium, home of the track and field teams, also "was submerged by rushing waters." But students "were already running on the track" by yesterday afternoon (L.A. TIMES, 7/31).
