Pauley Pavilion Court "Buckling"


UCLA AD Dan Guerrero is far more optimistic than a lot of other folks on campus these days.

He says that the Bruins will play inside Pauley Pavilion this season.

Assistant vice chancellor Kelly Schmader is just relaying the facts:

"Basically, it had eight to 10 inches of water all over the court. Crews worked through the night to try to get that water removed and they're currently in the drying process. The court is showing a little sign of buckling and expansion. Whether we'll be able to save that court, I don't know."

According to Schmader, 739 vehicles are still stuck inside two parking structures located in and around the athletic facilities. Some vehicles were completely under water- others just surrounded by water.

Here's the look around the campus from this morning

No word yet on what caused the actual break in the line, but officials think that Sunset Boulevard will be closed for a while. As a main conduit through campus, it is creating all the headaches one can imagine for travel under morning rush hour conditions.
