UCLA Bruins Basketball Team Info
The UCLA Bruins are
known for being one of the best basketball programs in college hoops, and a program doesn't earn that kind of stellar reputation
without seeing some great players hit the court over the course of its history. That is certainly the case for the Bruins,
who had one of the best college basketball players ever in Lew Alcindor, who went on to change his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
He won multiple National Championships with the Bruins and went on to win several NBA Championships in the pros as well. Another
great UCLA big man that needs to be mentioned is Bill Walton, who was also one of the greatest college basketball players
of all-time and had some significant success on the pro level as well, even if it was ultimately subdued because of injury.
With the Bruins looking to elevate the program and get back into the mix for a national championship, it simply doesn't get
any better than this.

options there are for sports these days, there is still nothing close to the live experience, and that will be exceptionally
clear if you head out to see if the Bruins have what it takes this season. This is a team that is used to playing in front
of a raucous crowd, and expect more of the same this year as the Bruins look to bring home more than a few wins to keep them
churning towards another trip to the Big Dance.
