The No. 5-ranked UCLA men's basketball team will host Long Beach State on Thursday, Jan. 6 at 4:30 p.m. (PT) in a non-conference contest in Pauley Pavilion presented by Wescom.
This game has been added to the Bruins' schedule after UCLA canceled or postponed multiple games over the past three weeks due to COVID-19 protocols either in the Bruins' program or with their opponent's program.

Thursday's game between UCLA and Long Beach State will be limited to families of team members, due to additional COVID-19 safety precautions. Guests should not come to Pauley Pavilion for the game.
