UCLA’s new basketball practice facility named after Mo Ostin

UCLA’s new basketball practice facility, scheduled to break ground this fall, has been named after record executive Mo Ostin.

Ostin has pledged $10 million to the construction of the project, which is estimated to cost $30-40 million. His contribution makes up approximately two-thirds of the current fundraising tally. The Mo Ostin Basketball Center — to be located southwest of Pauley Pavilion — will host both the UCLA men’s and women’s basketball programs, and is designed by Kevin Daly Architects and AECOM.

Plans for the facility were first announced in May 2014.

Ostin, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013, also donated $10 million to the Evelyn and Mo Ostin Music Center.
