The history and tradition of UCLA men’s basketball lies within the hardwood of the Pauley Pavilion. The team’s home complex was under 10 inches of water for a portion of time on Tuesday and athletic director Dan Guerrero announced Friday that the complex will be forced to undergo major renovations prior to the start of the season. The cost of the current floor is approximately $500,000, but the university should have no issues replacing it by mid-October barring any major problems.
The Pavilion was just one of many buildings affected by the campus wide water main break that also caused serious flooding in areas such as the J.D. Morgan Center and a volleyball court that is also located inside the John Wooden Center.
