UCLA will be in Las Vegas during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The UCLA Athletic Department announced on Thursday that the men’s basketball team has accepted an invitation to play in 2018 Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational at Orleans Arena on Nov. 22-23.
UCLA will be part of a loaded four-team field which includes Michigan State, North Carolina and Texas.
“We’re excited to return to Las Vegas for what will be two terrific games on consecutive days at the Orleans Arena in November,” UCLA coach Steve Alford said, per the UCLA Athletic Department. “With Michigan State, North Carolina and Texas, you’re talking about a trio of fantastic programs with really strong basketball traditions. It’s always good for our sport to see exciting non-conference matchups like these early in the season, and I know that our players will certainly be up for the challenge.”
Fox Sports and FS1 will broadcast the 2018 Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational.
