When: 8:30 p.m.

Where: Pauley Pavilion.

On the air: TV: Pac-12 Networks. Radio: 570.

Records: UCLA 20-7, 10-4 Pac-12; Sun Devils 20-8, 9-6.

Update: A key moment for both teams. Each would like to improve their resume for an NCAA tournament at-large berth. A UCLA victory will all but guarantee the Bruins get a first-round bye in the Pac-12 tournament, where playing three games in three days is far more appealing than playing four in four. UCLA probably will be without 6-foot-10 forward Travis Wear, who is still recovering from a sprained foot. The Bruins played the Sun Devils without Wear last time as well, and were routed, 78-60. The Bruins shot 35%. Jordan Bachynski, Arizona State's 7-foot-2 center, had 22 points and 15 rebounds. The Bruins were outrebounded, 53-33, and denied access to the basket on drives. Arizona State has been inconsistent, going 3-4 in the last seven games.
