Single game tickets for UCLA football games go on sale Wednesday. Here is a reminder/release from UCLA:
UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said the school has $53 million in pledges, meaning they are more than halfway to the goal of $100 million.
He also said naming rights (UCLA is using a more politically appealing term) for the arena could go for $40 million, but that could be used to offset the cost of bonds rather than toward the “Campaign of Champions” goal of raising the $100 million.
The name of the arena, even with naming rights, will still have Pauley Pavilion in it.

UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero and one of his top aides, Ross Bjork, met with select members of the media today to detail the seating plan for the renovated Pauley Pavilion.
Much of the information contained stuff I wrote about in Sunday’s paper, but Guerrero said a chance was made the concourse will now wrap around all of the renovated structure to help with pedestrian flow.
Information will go up on UCLA’s website Wednesday afternoon, and season ticket holders will receive information late next week as to where they currently stand on the points list, and an area where those seats would be.
UCLA right-hander Trevor Bauer was named to the Baseball America all-freshman team. Here is the release:
UCLA concluded its advanced skills camp, and two of the most impressive players were Chaparral of Temecula class of 2012 product Xavier Johnson and Edison High of Fresno class of 2012 center Robert Upshaw.
The coaches spent a significant amount of time talking to Johnson, a 6-foot-4 wing.
Upshaw has some nice moves in the low post, and it will be very interesting to watch his development over the next few years.
Class of 2011 center Angelo Chol of Hoover of San Diego was also impressive from an athletic and understanding viewpoint.
Also, Shabazz Muhammad, a class of 2012 wing from Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, was in attendance Monday despite not being able to play because of a toe injury.
I will have more Tuesday about UCLA’s advanced talent basketball camp, but a few quick things from today.
Former Lakers great Jerry West gave an inspiring talk to the campers, and former Bruins guard Arron Afflalo took time from his workouts to speak with the campers and answer questions.
There was plenty of nice talent present, and I also got a chance to see members of UCLA’s incoming freshmen class. However, Reeves Nelson and Tyler Honeycutt did not participate because of injuries, and UCLA commit Kendall Williams sat out the afternoon session with a sprained ankle.
Here is an update on the first day of UCLA’s men’s basketball camp, courtesy of colleague Frank Burlison from our sister paper, the Long Beach Press-Telegram. I’ll be down there today.
Here is a story I wrote outlining the seating structure of the renovated Pauley Pavilion.
Here is it, folks, the last set of answers. Hope the information was helpful. It’s a lot to go over, but hopefully you get some time during the weekend to play catchup, if need be.
Now, onto the final set:
