UCLA--- The Bruins are finally back on their home court at Pauley Pavilion after months of not being able to use the floor, because of extensive water damage from a broken pipe.
The floor is expected to be in full use come October 31st, when the Bruins play an exhibition game against Azusa Pacific. Two years, past, Pauley Pavilion went through a major $136 million renovation.
Adam Silver--- NBA commissioner Adam Silver, will lead off a relay team of 24 men and women, who are former basketball stars in this Sunday's New York City Marathon. The relay is to bring attention the importance of exercise for kids, as each team member will have a young person racing alongside of them in their leg of the relay.
Silver is not in marathon condition, but he does run four to five times per week.
Rule Change--- This is the start of the next few days of rules changes which could immensely help the game of college basketball, which in the past few years is losing both popularity and fans.
(Bring back pre-game dunking. People love to see dunks and it is stupid not to allow it in the pre-game, when it is perfectly fine to do it during the game.)
