UCLA Hosts Colorado State On Dec. 22

Dec. 21, 2009

LOS ANGELES - Coach Howland Press Conference

DATE: Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2009
SITE: Pauley Pavilion (12,819)
TIP-OFF: 7:30 p.m.
TELEVISION: Online only (UCLA All-Access)
TALENT: Chris Roberts (play-by-play) and Don MacLean (analyst)

UCLA senior forward James Keefe suffered a dislocated left shoulder midway through the first half of the Bruins' 100-68 home win over New Mexico State on Dec. 15. His X-rays were negative, but he is slated to be out 2-3 weeks for strengthening and rehabilitation. It is the same shoulder that Keefe had surgery on in August of 2007 to repair a torn labrum that cost him to miss the first 12 games of the 2007-08 season.

This is the 7th meeting between the Colorado State Rams and UCLA with the series tied at 3-3. The Bruins are 3-1 all-time against the Rams in Los Angeles and 2-0 in Pauley Pavilion. Colorado State won the last meeting, coincidentally on Dec. 22, upsetting 18th-ranked UCLA 55-54 in 1999 in the semifinals of the Pearl Harbor Invitational in Laie, Hawaii. The last time Colorado State visited Pauley Pavilion was also coincidentally on Dec. 22, 1979 when the 14th-ranked Bruins defeated an unranked CSU squad, 86-63. UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland has never faced Colorado State.

UCLA All-Access, UCLA Athletics' online multimedia platform, will carry exclusive online video broadcasts of the next two UCLA men's basketball games. There is no telecast for either contest.

The games against Colorado State this Tuesday, December 22 at 7:30 pm and against Delaware State this Sunday, December 27 at 1 pm will be available exclusively on UCLA All-Access. Tuesday's game will be free to everyone while Sunday's game will be part of the subscription package ($9.95 per month).
