Trevor Wilson and Kevin Walker are still competing for the only undecided starting spot on the UCLA basketball roster, so Thursday night's annual intrasquad game at Pauley Pavilion had some additional meaning for them.
It was no surprise, then, that Wilson and Walker both turned in impressive performances before a small crowd of 2,471.
Playing for the Blue squad, Wilson had 25 points and 18 rebounds in a 99-76 victory over the Gold. Of course, he had a lot of help from starting center Greg Foster (18 points, 10 rebounds) and starting guards Pooh Richardson (25 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists) and Dave Immel (19 points).
For the Gold, Walker scored 32 points and had 11 rebounds, while Charles Rochelin, already considered a sure bet to start at forward, finished with 11 points (2-of-12 shooting) and just 4 rebounds.
UCLA Coach Walt Hazzard, who watched while assistants Jack Hirsch coached the Blue team and Andre McCarter the Gold, said he hasn't decided who will get the final spot.
