BERKELEY - There was one answer UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley gave over and over after a 43-17 loss to California on Saturday night in Memorial Stadium. “We got to fix that,” Hundley said. “We got to fix that.” A blanket response for a lengthy to-do list following a performance that harked back to the mediocrity of past seasons. It was one game, but there was so much to fix after the Bruins (4-2 overall, 1-2 in Pac-12 play) lost their seventh consecutive game in Berkeley.

UCLA neurobiologist Elissa Hallem has won a prestigious MacArthur fellowship for her work studying a topic you've almost definitely never considered unless you work in her lab: how worms smell stuff. Strange as it may sound, Hallem's work has the potential to reduce the devastating health effect of parasitic worms around the world -- and to improve our still-thin understanding of how all animals smell. Hallem and 22 other winners from the arts and sciences will each receive "genius grants" of $100,000 a year for five years.

UCLA next vs. California, Thursday at Pauley Pavilion, 7:30 p.m., Prime Ticket ? Most of the top Golden Bears players are gone from the team that won two of three meetings with the Bruins last season, including an 85-72 victory in a Pacific 10 Conference tournament semifinal. But freshman guard Allen Crabbe, a former Los Angeles Price High standout, has given Cal a boost. He scored a career-high 30 points Thursday during the Bears' 88-81 overtime victory over Washington State.
