UCLA at Arizona
When: 7:30 p.m.
Where: McKale Court.
On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 570.
Records: UCLA 13-15 overall, 8-8 Pacific 10 Conference; Arizona 14-14, 8-8.
Update: Forward Reeves Nelson, who had a partially torn retina, was cleared to play in this weekend's games after an eye examination Wednesday. J'mison Morgan, the Bruins' reserve center, was suspended for one game for a violation of team rules. He will not travel to Tucson but is expected to rejoin the team for Saturday's game at Arizona State. The Wildcats are in full youth-movement mode, with seven of the nine players they use either freshmen or sophomores — and that doesn't include guard Kevin Parrom, who was starting before suffering a season-ending foot injury. A strong case can be made for Derrick Williams as freshman of the year in the Pacific 10 Conference. The 6-foot-8 forward from La Mirada High is averaging 15.8 points and 6.8 rebounds.
