Final Field For Wooden Classic Announced

By Bruin Basketball Report

The George Washington Colonials and Texas A&M Aggies will join the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans in the four-team line-up at the John R. Wooden Classic college basketball doubleheader on Dec. 9.

UCLA, which lost to Florida in this year's national championship game, will play Texas A&M in the first game; while USC will take on George Washington in the second game.

Texas A&M, which lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament, and George Washington, the regular season Atlantic 10 Champion, will be making their first appearances in the Wooden Classic, which began in 1994.

UCLA will be playing for the tenth time, while USC will be back for its fourth appearance.

The games will be played at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim.

In the second game of last year's Wooden Classic, UCLA's Jordan Farmar hit on 10 of 13 field goals for 24 points to lead the Bruins to a 67-56 victory over the Nevada Wolf Pack.
