No. 23 Arizona State (14-4, 5-2) at UCLA (5-10, 2-5), 7, KACD (850), KEWS (1340)-- Bruin forward Shalada Allen will serve a one-game suspension after her brief altercation with USC's Ebony Hoffman during Sunday's loss to USC. Arizona State guard Amanda Levens, the Pacific 10's leading scorer (20.2), has a sprained ankle and is a game-time decision.

Arizona (7-9, 3-4) at USC (9-7, 5-2), Sports Arena, 7--Hoffman must serve a one-game suspension after the Sunday fracas against UCLA, and Tiffany Elmore's badly sprained ankle may not have healed enough for her to play.
