UCLA today

Where: Anaheim Convention Center.

On the air: TV: ESPNU; Radio: 570.

Records: UCLA 2-3, Long Beach State 3-3.

Record vs. opponent: 11-0.

Update: The last time Long Beach State defeated the Bruins was, well, never. But this season at the 76 Classic could be different. UCLA must continue to show the hustle that nearly fueled an upset of No. 12 Butler on Friday night, with Drew Gordon establishing a post presence and perimeter shots falling. In an earlier game, the 49ers stayed close before falling to No. 19 Clemson, getting double-doubles from sophomores T.J. Robinson, Casper Ware and Eugene Phelps. With a morning tipoff and what figures to be a small crowd, UCLA Coach Ben Howland said: "We're going to have to create our own enthusiasm."
