Bulldogs to face UCLA in 2009 Wooden Classic

By NEMS Daily Journal

Mississippi State’s men’s basketball team will face UCLA in the 16th annual Wooden Classic on Dec. 12, according to multiple reports.
The four-team, two-game event will be held at the Honda Center in Los Angeles. MSU would not confirm the reports, and a call to UCLA’s basketball office by the Daily Journal was not returned.
UCLA is the only confirmed participant.
That game would displace MSU’s scheduled matchup with Gardner-Webb, and it would come two days after State plays DePaul in the SEC/Big East Challenge in Tampa.
MSU is still trying to fill two other open dates for the 2009-10 season.
