LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA basketball coach Steve Alford is getting a one-year contract extension through the 2020-21 season one year after arriving in Westwood.

Alford guided the Bruins to a 28-9 record, the Pac-12 tournament title and the school’s first Sweet 16 appearance since 2008. Alford tied Gene Bartow (1975-76) with the most wins by any head coach in his first season at the school.

Athletic director Dan Guerrero announced the extension Friday.

UCLA opens the season at home against Montana State on Nov. 14. The Bruins lost Kyle Anderson, Jordan Adams and Zach LaVine, who were all first-round selections in the NBA draft last spring.
