Cal Poly Pomona and Humboldt State will be UCLA's Exhibition Home Opponents to Open the 2006-07 Season

July 12, 2006

UCLA men's basketball has completed its 2006-07 schedule announcing Wednesday that Cal Poly Pomona and Humboldt State will be the Bruins' exhibition home opponents to open the season.

The Cal Poly Pomona/UCLA contest will take place Thursday, Nov. 2 and the Humboldt State/UCLA game is Thursday, Nov. 9 (both games in Pauley Pavilion). UCLA's regular season opener is Wednesday, Nov. 15 vs. Brigham Young in Pauley Pavilion.

Cal Poly Pomona is a member of the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) and an NCAA Div. II institution. The Broncos were 17-10 last year and finished third in the CCAA in 2006. Cal Poly Pomona was NCAA Div. II West Region champions in 2003 and 2005, advancing to the 'Elite Eight'. The Broncos had a string of three straight NCAA playoff appearances (2003, 04, 05) snapped last season, but have recorded 12 winning seasons in a row, the most in program history.

Humboldt State, located in Arcata, has been a member of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, but in 2006-07 will join the CCAA in men's basketball. An NCAA Div. II institution, the HSU men, who finished the 2005-06 regular season 17-9 overall and 11-7 in the Great Northwest, were awarded the No. 7 seed in the NCAA Div. II West Region Championships field of eight (losing in the first round). During the current decade, Humboldt State men's basketball has risen to join the ranks of the best NCAA Div. II programs in the nation. The Lumberjacks have earned a berth in the postseason five of the past six years, advancing to the national semifinals in 2004.
