Bruins' 1999-00 schedule
| UCLA |
| 1998-99 record |
| 22-9 overall, 12-6 Pac-10 (lost to Detroit in NCAA first round)
| Coach |
| Steve Lavin, 70-26 (3 years at UCLA)|
| Projected starting lineup |
G Earl Watson, 6-1, Jr. |
Back to his more comfortable position, he will fill it up and dish it off with the best this year.
G Ray Young, 6-3, So.
Shot over 40 percent from 3-point territory last year and is a defensive menace.
C Dan Gadzuric, 6-11, So.
Still has problems with tendinitis in knees, but is difficult to handle when healthy.
F JaRon Rush, 6-10, Sr.
As a freshman led UCLA in rebounding and also scored 11.4 points a game.
F Jerome Moiso, 6-10, So.
Long, agile player who can score, rebound and intimidate.
| Top guy off the bench |
G Jason Kapono, 6-7, Fr.
Lavin raves about this future All-American. "I'd be surprised if he isn't in the mix in a big way all season," Lavin said.
| Key Newcomer |
Kapano, Lakewood, Calif. |
JC transfer may inherit Andre Miller's point-guard job.
| Key Games |
| vs. Gonzaga (Dec. 11). Nice non-conference test against team that surprised in NCAA tournament last year.|
at North Carolina (Jan. 15). Another chance to measure up with elite on the other coast.
| Outlook |
Should contend for Pac-10 title. Bruins have youngest team in school history, but they are talented and experienced nevertheless. "This team should be able to compete nationally," Lavin said. A trip to the Sweet Sixteen is not out of the question.
