ESPN's excitable basketball commentator Dick Vitale did a conference call Wednesday and when the topic of Los Angeles basketball was broached, Vitale, unprompted, called out UCLA fans for poor attendance at Pauley Pavilion.

"I see 5,000 fans at Pauley," Vitale said, "5,000 fans at a school and team of that caliber in Southern California, that's just humiliation. I know you've got to win and produce or people aren't coming out in Hollywood, baby, with all there is to do. But are you serious? UCLA is winning, winning big and there should be excitement, enthusiasm.

"With a school with that much visibility and history and now the Bruins are winning, they should be selling out."
