Bruins Face Portland in 76 Classic

The UCLA Bruins (2-1) will face the Portland Pilots (3-0) Thanksgiving evening in Anaheim at 7:30 in the first round of the 76 Classic. The Pilots of the WCC are coming off of an 88-81 victory over Oregon of the Pac 10.

Portland is coached by Eric Reveno who is in his fourth season. Reveno, a former Stanford player in the late 80's, is known for coaching a very disciplined style of play with an emphasis on the development of big men. He is not unlike Ben Howland in that regard. Reveno is also known as a "high tech coach". He is perhaps the national leader in the utilization of computers and other high tech devices in the recruiting and coaching process.
