UCLA says historic Pauley Pavilion will be ready for fall despite pipe burst

UCLA’s athletic teams will be able to use Pauley Pavilion when competition begins in the fall, athletic director Dan Guerrero said Wednesday.

The floor of the historic arena, which was recently renovated, appeared clean and mostly dry less than 24 hours after a water main broke on Sunset Boulevard, sending water gushing onto the Westwood campus.

Examining the arena on Wednesday, university officials found no structural damage. UCLA will replace the court in the arena, and temporary flooring could be brought in until the full replacement is made.
