UCLA’s basketball team will get a finishing kick in the 2014-15 season, with the Bruins playing five of their last seven Pac-12 games in Pauley Pavilion.

Dates for Pac-12 games have not been finalized.


The Bruins upgraded their nonconference schedule, adding single games with Gonzaga and Kentucky. They will also play in the Battle for Atlantis in the Bahamas, a tournament that includes North Carolina, Florida, Georgetown and Wisconsin.

UCLA was eliminated by Florida in the NCAA tournament’s South Regional semifinals in March. The Bruins finished second in conference play and won the open Pac-12 tournament last season.
