A look at UCLA's basketball roster


Player; Yr.; Pos.; Ht.; Comment by Ben Bolch
Bryce Alford; Sr.; G; 6-3; Could break three-point shooting records now that he’s freed from ballhandling.
Prince Ali; So.; G; 6-3; Expected to provide depth upon return in December from knee surgery.
Ike Anigbogu; Fr.; F-C; 6-10; Should be rim protector after returning from knee injury later this month.
Lonzo Ball; Fr.; G; 6-6; If his high-level passing doesn’t get too fancy, Bruins will be in for a Ball.
Armani Dodson; Fr.; G; 6-5; Walk-on has a shoulder injury that is expected to sideline him several weeks.
Gyorgy Goloman; Jr.; F; 6-11; Has fully regained lower-body strength he lost after knee surgery.
Aaron Holiday; So.; G; 6-1; Will be part of four-guard lineups that fluster foes with pace, savvy.
Isaac Hamilton; Sr.; G; 6-5; Pac-12’s leading returning scorer also makes leadership points.
T.J. Leaf; Fr.; F; 6-10; Can lead the fastbreak, finish inside and shoot three-pointers.
Ikenna Okwarabizie; Jr.; C; 6-9; Should get boost in playing time until Anigbogu returns.
Alex Olesinski; So.; F; 6-10; Expected to boost modest production from freshman season.
Jerrold Smith; Sr.; G; 6-0; Onetime practice player for women’s team has made the big time.
Thomas Welsh; Jr.; C; 7-0; Skilled for his size; can make jump hooks and face-up jumpers.
Alec Wulff; Jr.; G; 6-3; Older brother of Isaac Wulff has played in nine games over first two seasons.
Isaac Wulff; Fr.; G; 6-3; Transition from Orange Coast League to Pac-12 could be jarring for walk-on.
