Malcolm Lee never heard the pitter-patter of big feet from behind. This was UCLA's first possession Sunday. Lee pushed up through the Trojans' pressure. The next moment, USC forward Marcus Johnson was going the other way with the ball. It was just another step on a tough learning curve for Lee. After last season, Jrue Holiday bolted early for the NBA. Jerime Anderson has been slowed by injury and inconsistency. That has left Lee, a shooting guard by trade, as the team's learn-as-I-go point guard.

Blame cardboard-consistency airline food, unfamiliar beds and large quantities of opposing fans. But blame something, because Pacific 10 Conference teams don't travel well. Home teams are 44-19, with USC's Thursday night's matchup with Washington in Seattle featuring a paradoxical pair: Washington is 16-1 at home and 1-6 on the road. USC is 11-3 at home and 1-6 on the road. USC Coach Kevin O'Neill said the conference's lack of teams with veteran players, aside from California, the Pac-10 leader at 9-4, is why no team has fared well on the road.

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.
