UCLA Hoops notes

UCLA head coach Ben Howland on playing at Washington:
“They have a great home court. It’s really a loud, hard place. They have great fan support that really gets their players going. I was up there a few weeks ago recruiting, and they did a good job when they remodeled it. It’s loud.”

On preparing to play at Hec Ed:
“As football does – and we do it to sometimes – you pipe in noise. I think it can help.”

On the Huskies:
“Lorenzo has really developed a good program. They win year in year out and they play real hard. This team and last years team is a very good shooting team.”

On a game like Washington’s big loss at Colorado being a game to study for comparison:
“Colorado, you’re up at 7,000 feet. I’m not sure Wilcox played in that game. Washington plays really hard at home, and that’s why when Cal went in there and won it was a big win. You throw all that out. That has nothing to do with this game Thursday.”
