In last year's game in Los Angeles, Reeves Nelson led the Bruins with 18 points while Malcolm Lee (eight points) hit a pair of free throws with 24 seconds left to secure the victory. Michael Roll had 16 points and five assists while Nikola Dragovic added 15 points, six rebounds and three steals for UCLA.

Jeremy Green was the only other Cardinal to reach double figures with 18 points. UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland is 9-6 against Stanford and 5-2 against the Cardinal in Pauley Pavilion.
BRUINS' INJURY REPORT
Freshman center Joshua Smith hit his head on the floor after attempting to take a charge in the first half against California (Jan. 20). He returned briefly in the first half but then sat for the remainder of the contest after recording four points and five rebounds in just six minutes in the win over the Golden Bears. He has neck soreness and stiffness and will be a game-time decision against Stanford (Jan. 22).
