ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -UCLA will play Davidson in the 14th annual John R. Wooden Classic basketball doubleheader in December.
The Dec. 8 game will be the first meeting between the teams since 1975, when UCLA won 91-64 at Pauley Pavilion in the season Wooden retired.
The Bruins will be making their fifth consecutive appearance and 11th overall. They have a 7-3 record in the event. UCLA made its second straight Final Four appearance last season.
Davidson has played in two consecutive NCAA tournaments and had a school-record 29 wins last season.
