As wildfires continued to rage in Southern California on Wednesday, UCLA men’s basketball canceled its home game against Montana.
But the fires weren’t expected to affect UCLA’s trip to Michigan, with the teams scheduled to play at noon Saturday at Crisler Center. A UCLA spokesman told The News the UCLA team was to depart Los Angeles for Ann Arbor on Thursday, a normal travel itinerary two days before the tip with the Wolverines.
UCLA is traveling to Michigan as part of a home-and-home that included last year’s meeting at Pauley Pavilion, won, 104-82, by then-No. 2 UCLA.
