SERIES VERSUS OREGON
This is the 108th meeting between UCLA and Oregon with the Bruins leading the series 81-26 (.757). The Bruins have won six straight games over the Ducks in Pauley Pavilion by an average of 14 points (77-63). The Bruins posted a 94-68 convincing victory over Oregon in Pauley Pavilion in last year's home finale (Mar. 7, 2009) as all three seniors scored in double figures (Josh Shipp career-high 28 pts., Darren Collison 19 pts., Alfred Aboya 10 pts.). Drew Wiley led the Ducks with 18 points. In this year's earlier meeting, Oregon won 71-66 in overtime on Jan. 28, 2010. UCLA got double-doubles from Nikola Dragovic (19 pts., 10 rbs.) and Tyler Honeycutt (13 pts., 10 rbs.). Head Coach Ben Howland is 10-3 against Oregon.

ROLL FOR THREE
Senior guard Michael Roll is third in the Pacific-10 Conference in league play in three-point field goal percentage at 43.9 percent (36-for-82) and ranks fourth in three-pointers made per game (2.4). In overall games on the season, he ranks third in percentage (.430, 65-for-151) and fourth in treys per game (2.4). On the UCLA career charts, Roll sits at No. 5 in three-pointers made (194) and needs four to pass Tracy Murray for fourth. He also ranks sixth in three-pointers attempted (464) and fifth in three-point field goal percentage (.418).
