When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Galen Center.

On the air: TV: Fox Sports1; Radio: 570, 710.

Records: Bruins 17-5, 6-3 in Pac-12 play; Trojans 10-12, 1-8.

Update: UCLA embarrassed USC, 107-73, in a Pac-12 opener, dominating every facet of the game. The Trojans have performed better than that in the last two weeks, though they have little to show for it. USC lost its first five Pac-12 Conference games by an average of 22 points. The Trojans have won only one of their last four games, but two of the losses came in overtime. The offense has picked up, with the Trojans averaging 72 points in the last four games. UCLA took a step back in a 71-67 loss at Oregon State. The Bruins, who are shooting 49% this season, settled too often for perimeter shots and shot 39% in that game. Something to watch for: USC leads the Pac-12 in turnovers; UCLA leads the conference in steals.
