This is the 74th meeting between UCLA and Arizona State with the Bruins leading the series 57-17 (.770). UCLA is 23-10 (.697) all-time in games at Arizona State. UCLA lost last year's matchup in Tempe, Ariz., 56-46 on Mar. 6, 2010. Head Coach Ben Howland is 11-7 all-time against Arizona State while Herb Sendek is 3-5 against UCLA.

Freshman center Joshua Smith (head injury) was cleared to play on Wednesday, Jan. 26 and had 13 points and one rebound in 19 minutes in the loss at Arizona (Jan. 27). Sophomore forward Reeves Nelson sprained his left ankle late in the game in the win over Stanford (Jan. 22). He started in the loss at Arizona and had a double-double with a game-high 24 points and 10 rebounds.

It's not often that members of the Sports Information community step out from behind the scenes, but this weekend, SIDs across the nation would like to take a moment to remember the life and accomplishments of Will Hancock. One of the 10 Oklahoma State University personnel killed in a plane crash 10 years ago this week, Hancock served as the media relations director for the OSU men's basketball program. Will was a pillar of the sports information profession and an even better person. Those of us who were fortunate enough to know and work alongside Will still miss him to this day.
