Travis Wear diagnosed with appendicitis


Travis Wear’s season did not get off to an ideal start, as UCLA’s senior big man was hospitalized on Monday with appendicitis.

Wear started for the Bruins last season, averaging 10.9 points and 5.2 boards. The timetable for his return is unknown.

UCLA’s season begins on November 8th when they host Drexel at Pauley Pavilion, but the Bruins also have a scrimmage coming up on Wednesday evening against Cal State San Bernadino.
