Notre Dame men's hoops is gearing up for another tough test in the month of December. The Irish take on UCLA on Saturday at Pauley Pavilion.
The Bruins are currently 6-2 both losses against Top 25 opponents.
In looking ahead to UCLA, Head Coach Mike Brey knows his team will be taking on a group of guys that will soon get paid to play the game.
"Well, they've got young pros,” said Brey. “They've got some one-and-done guys. Oklahoma was old and veteran and this is young and giftedyou've got athletic ability. The one thing about this program is they've always got good players at this place. But what an opportunity for our kids in one week, you play in Madison Square Garden and now you're going to play in Pauley Pavilion. Again, for our new faces, it's like, do you guys understand what we just signed up for?"
