A water pipe burst near UCLA on Tuesday flooded Pauley Pavilion. As much as 10 million gallons of water spewed from the massive pipe break and spilled over the campus.

More than 3-1/2 hours after rupture, which occurred at 3:30 p.m., about an inch of water remained on the floor of the historic arena that underwent a $136 million renovation two years ago.

“The water will be removed from the floor tonight,” UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said in a statement late Tuesday night. “We will then reassess the situation tomorrow morning and be able to provide additional information at the appropriate time.”

Drake Stadium, which is home to UCLA’s soccer and track and field teams was also submerged. Water was also inside the J.D. Morgan Center which houses UCLA’s athletic department offices and its sports hall of fame.

WEDNESDAY MORNING LINKS:

Colorado added Josh Fortune, a 6-5 guard transfer from Providence. He’ll sit out the 2014-15 season and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
