When: 5 PST.

Where: Coors Events Center, Boulder.

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

Records: UCLA 13-3, 2-1; Colorado 14-3, 3-1.

Update: This will be Colorado's first full game without point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who suffered a season-ending knee injury against Washington. The Buffaloes were leading, 25-22, when he was injured and lost, 71-54. They will also play without 6-foot-7 swingman Tre'Shaun Fletcher, who also suffered a knee injury. Colorado is likely to rely more on guard Askia Booker, who averages 13.1 points per game. Forward Josh Scott, who averages 13.6 points and 9.2 rebounds, gives the Buffaloes an inside presence. UCLA is the only team Colorado has not beaten since joining the Pac-12 Conference two seasons ago. The Bruins have won both games, including 78-75 in Boulder last season. UCLA's rebounding has improved in conference play, but Colorado ranks 11th nationally in rebounding margin at 8.7 per game.
