Davidson set to play UCLA

Davidson has another high-profile opponent on its 2007-08 men's basketball schedule. The Wildcats will play UCLA as part of the Wooden Classic in Anaheim, Calif. Dec. 8.

Davidson - which has every scholarship player returning from a 29-5 team - has already scheduled games at Charlotte Bobcats Arena against North Carolina (Nov. 14) and Duke (Dec. 1). The Wildcats also have road games against Charlotte (Dec. 5) and N C. State (Dec. 21).

Davidson has not played UCLA since 1975. The Bruins finished 30-6 last season and reached the Final Four for the second straight year. UCLA has point guard Darren Collison and forward Josh Shipp returning, and also has Gatorade high school boy's basketball player of the year Kevin Love entering the lineup.

UCLA is a great addition to the Davidson Wildcats' intersection schedule for the coming season.

Later on the Cats should try to schedule a couple of teams from the SEC and maybe Stanford from the PAC-10.
