UCLA  will get an early start on its most anticipated basketball season in years with an exhibition tour in China during August.

The Bruins, who have the nation’s No. 2 recruiting class according to Scout.com, will benefit from being allowed 10 practices.

The tour is part of the Pac-12 Conference’s efforts to gain a foothold in Asia.

The Bruins were 19-14 during a tumultuous 2011-12 season and missed the NCAA tournament for the second time in three seasons. But UCLA is expected to be among the top-ranked teams heading into the season after signing forward Shabazz Muhammad, guard Kyle Anderson, center Tony Parker and forward Jordan Adams. Also, Larry Drew II, a transfer from North Carolina, will be eligible.
