The UCLA basketball team will return to practice this afternoon, back to work after spending a day pondering all that went wrong in the season opener against Cal State Fullerton. There was a lot to think about. The Bruins showed little resemblance to teams that reached the NCAA tournament, not to mention three Final Fours, over the previous five seasons. Instead, the double-overtime loss Monday -- coupled with lackluster performances in two exhibitions -- reinforced a growing suspicion that UCLA is headed for its rockiest season since Coach Ben Howland adopted a fallen program in 2003.

J.P. Prince had 20 points and Scotty Hopson scored 15, and No. 19 Tennessee withstood a late rally to upset No. 2 Kentucky, 74-65, Saturday, handing the Wildcats just their second loss of the season.

The Wildcats (27-2, 12-2) had trailed by 19 early in the second half but managed to tie the game at 65 with just over two minutes left before Prince and Hopson scored the final nine points to clinch the victory.

A beat-up junker with four flat tires and an engine sputtering on its last miles rolled into the Galen Center on Saturday. It stalled for 40 minutes on hardwood, souring its own pregame senior day festivities adorned with the traditional roses, sobs, applause and framed jerseys. And, after mustering something of an effort before the final buzzer mercilessly ended a hideous basketball game, USC, the junker, stopped. Final score: Oregon State 49, USC 44, before a crowd of 6,158.
