Tonight: UCLA Bruins Hosting Washington State Cougars


Game Will Be On FSN and tip off is scheduled for 7:30 Pacific Standard Time

Open of the Pac-10 Season for both squads. Bruins end the pre-season play with an impressive 11-0 Mark with wins over Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Michigan and a nice win over Chaminade who have posted many upsets in the Maui Invitational. Led by Afflalo's leadership and scoring, Mbah A Moute's defensive intensity along with Collison's dishing off the ball, Bruins should be ready for Pac-10 Play and hopefully take this game. Washington St. is also an impressive, yet surprising 11-1 this year with wins over Gonzaga, Radford, Cal St. Northridge, San Diego State, but a 14 point loss to Utah. The Cougs are led by Derrick Low's 15.5 Points per outing and Kyle Weaver's all around play averagin 10/5/4. Should be a good opening game as the Cougs will be coming out with energy, hustle and intensity, so hopefully for me and Bruin-Nation, the Bruins will not be overlooking the Cougars of Washington State.

What's Going On Around The Pac-10:

7th Ranked Arizona(9-1) is hosting the 8-4 California Golden Bears. Arizona should take this one and if you can watch it, I reccomend you do as Chase Budinger, Marcus Williams, Ivan Radenovic, and Mustafa Shakur are solid.

The Arizona State Sun Devils(6-5) host the Stanford Cardinal(7-2). Cardinal had a dissapointing season last year but seem to have bounced back led by Hill, Lopez and Johnson. Pendegraph for ASU has been solid.

The 13th ranked Washington Huskies(10-1) are on the road against the Trojans of Southern California(10-3). Spencer Hawes has been spectacular for the Huskies, but so have Nick Young and Gabe Pruitt for the Trojans.

20th ranked Oregon(11-0) will host the 3-11 Portland Pilots in the only non-Pac 10 matchup of the night. Oregon will face off with the Beavers from Oregon St. to open up their Pac-10 Season but tonight will need to try to stay undefeated under Porter, Luenen and Brooks against the Pilots who are led by Coopers 12.2 scoring.
