Cedric Bozeman Sidelined For Remainder Of Season

March 3, 2003

UCLA sophomore point guard Cedric Bozeman will not play in the Bruins' remaining games this season and will have right shoulder surgery at the conclusion of Winter Quarter final exams (March 17-21), Bruin head coach Steve Lavin announced Monday.

Bozeman strained his right shoulder on Feb. 5 at USC and aggravated the injury at Arizona State on Feb. 15. Since the ASU game in Tempe, Bozeman has missed four contests. Based on symptoms, examinations and medical testing, Bozeman has been diagnosed with instability in his right shoulder.

Bozeman, a 6-6, 197-pounder who was a 2001 McDonald's All-American as a senior at Los Angeles Mater Dei HS, appeared in UCLA's first 21 games and started 17, including his last six games. He is UCLA's sixth-leading scorer (7.3) and second on the squad in assists (3.2). On Feb. 8, Bozeman's two free throws with 4.9 seconds left gave the Bruins a 71-70 win at Big East rival Georgetown, halting UCLA's nine-game losing streak.

The Bruins (7-18 overall, 4-12 in the Pac-10) this week will play their final regular season home games in Pauley Pavilion, hosting Washington State on Thursday (7:30 p.m.) and Washington on Saturday (7:30 p.m.).
