LOS ANGELES (AP) - With new recruits Shabazz Muhammad, Kyle Anderson and Tony Parker, along with a newly renovated arena almost ready to open, things appear to be looking up for UCLA's basketball program months after last season ended in turmoil.
Expectations - always high at a school that owns a record 11 national championships - are through the roof for the Bruins to be back in title contention after coach Ben Howland landed one of the nation's top recruiting classes.
Muhammad and Anderson, the centerpieces of the freshmen class, are also the subjects of individual NCAA investigations and neither has yet to be declared eligible for the upcoming season.
A university spokesman declared questions about the NCAA inquiries or their potential impact on the program off-limits on Wednesday, when the Bruins met the media.
