Update: UCLA guards Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson are expected to return to UCLA's starting lineup after serving one-game suspensions for violating team rules. Coach Steve Alford wouldn't guarantee their spots Saturday, saying, "We still got a day of practice." But he said the two would start, "as long as practice goes well." The Beavers, who have had only two winning seasons since 1990, are trying to get into the NCAA tournament discussion. They handled the Bruins in Corvallis, winning, 71-67. Eric Moreland and Angus Brandt, Oregon State's two 6-foot-10 players, were a problem for the Bruins in that game. But Alford is more concerned about guard Roberto Nelson, who is averaging 20.6 points to lead the Pac-12. "We have a lot of respect for those post guys, but Nelson is a guy you have to keep an eye on," Alford said. "He can take over games all by himself."
