LOS ANGELES — UCLA coach Mick Cronin will miss the fourth-ranked Bruins’ game against Alabama State on Wednesday night because of COVID-19 protocols.
Associate head coach Darren Savino will serve as acting coach for the game.
Program spokesman Alex Timiraos had no further comment on Cronin.
The Bruins (8-1) will next play North Carolina on Saturday as part of the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas. Cronin’s status for that game wasn’t immediately known.
UCLA is riding a four-game winning streak, which includes a forfeit victory over Washington Dec. 5.
