BRUIN INJURY REPORT
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.
SERIES VERSUS COLORADO STATE
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.
