“Runnin’ Rebel fans have craved this matchup for years and we are pleased it has come to fruition,” Reed-Francois said. “UCLA is a storied program, one of the most recognizable in college basketball history, and will make an outstanding regional series with national interest. As we work to continue to enhance our future schedules, the Bruins have the type of program from a strong conference that fits our philosophy well in terms of opponent attractiveness and positioning our team for postseason play.”
