It's never too early to plan for the Pacific 10 Conference tournament, unless you play for USC this season. For UCLA, there is considerable work to be done with six regular-season games remaining. The Bruins, 11-13 overall and 6-6 in the Pac-10, had the luxury of knowing that an NCAA tournament invitation was set aside for them each of the last five seasons. This season, UCLA will have to be able to string together at least three consecutive victories in three days to win the Pac-10 tournament.

USC guard Donte Smith made a clutch three-point basket against UCLA midway through the second half Sunday. The shot, from the left wing, boosted USC's lead to 52-47 with 8 minutes 42 seconds to play. After he made it, Smith swiveled his neck back and forth and smiled wide as he ran down the court. "I told my guys I was going to do that if I hit one," he said after USC's 68-64 victory. Smith matched his career high with 12 points in the game. But he hadn't been so happy of late, because he hadn't been playing.
