ARIZONA at UCLA

* When--Saturday. Time--1 p.m. TV--Fox Sports West.

* Story line--Arizona tries to run the Pacific 10 table on its way to another run at the NCAA title. UCLA seniors J.R. Henderson, Toby Bailey and Kris Johnson finally relinquished the Pac-10 title, but they'll try to keep Miles Simon from celebrating on their court. The first meeting, an 87-75 Arizona victory, was fairly competitive--certainly more than the Arizona-Stanford games.
