The 2012-2013 University of California Los Angeles Bruins basketball team is set to tip off their season. The Bruins have been a basketball powerhouse throughout history. Grab the best seats in the house at Pauley Pavilion and be a part of The Den or follow your Bruins on the road right here at Gold Coast Tickets!
Today, the Bruins are coached by Ben Howland in his ninth season. Howland took the Bruins to three straight Final Four appearances in the 2006-2008 seasons, but never came up the National Championship. The Bruins have been to the NCAA Tournament 44 times, and have won the Championship 11 times. That is an astonishing 25% chance that the Bruins win the tourney if they make it!
Things are about to change as the Bruins bring back leading rebounder and second leading scorer Travis Wear to go along with one of the best recruiting classes in the nation. The Bruins rake in the #1 recruit in the nation is Shabazz Muhammad. Shabazz is a 6’6 guard that can just about do everything from handling the ball, shooting the lights up, and jumping through the gym.
Over the years the Bruins have had so many great players come through the program and go onto the NBA including: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Baron Davis, Darren Collison, Jordan Farmar, Jrue Holiday, Ryan Hollins, Jason Kapono, Kevin Love, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Reggie Miller, and Russell Westbrook.
This season the Bruins hope to send more players to the NBA as they definitely will have the talent to do so. Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as the Bruins will be the most exciting team to watch in college basketball this season.
