Friday, January 22, 1999 - 16:00
Santa Barbara, CA

The Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball team will open the doors to its secluded UC Santa Barbara training camp on Monday night, allowing 5,300 campus and Santa Barbara-area fans to attend a practice and scrimmage.

"We felt that since we were here it would be a nice thing to do for our fans in the area," said John Black, public relations director for the team, which will work out on campus Thursday through Tuesday.

All other practices will be closed to the public.

Monday's open practice will run from 5:30

p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Campus Events Center.

Free tickets -- courtesy of the Lakers and UCSB -- will be distributed to UCSB students and staff at the campus Recreation Center on Friday.

Other interested persons can pick up tickets at the following youth centers between noon and 3 p.m. on Monday:

Santa Barbara East Side Boys and Girls Club. Santa Barbara West Side Boys and Girls Club. Goleta Boys and Girls Club. Carpinteria Boys and Girls Club. Lompoc Boys and Girls Club. Santa Ynez Valley YMCA.

Santa Barbara City Recreation -- Youth Activities Office, MacKenzie Park. Students can pick up tickets at the campus Recreation Center patio from noon to 3 p.m. Friday and must show their student identification cards.

There is a one-ticket-per-student limit.

Tickets will be available to faculty and staff from noon to 4 p.m. on Friday

and -- if any remain -- from 8 a.m. to noon on Monday.

Faculty and staff must also show campus identification and will be allowed two tickets each.

After their six-day camp here, the Lakers will return to Los Angeles to continue preparation for the lockout-shortened 50-game season.

Black said the Lakers previously held a mini camp

at UCSB in June 1989 during the NBA playoffs.
