"We are extremely disappointed to hear that the original center circle from Pauley Pavilion has been put up for auction," Guerrero said. "We have made numerous attempts to reacquire the center circle from the current owner but were rebuffed on every try. We even had a donor ready to make a donation to the owner's charity of choice. The center circle belongs on display at new Pauley Pavilion and we are hopeful that we will be able to work out an arrangement with the new owner to bring this important piece of UCLA basketball history back to its home."
