He sat out the loss to Arizona State on Saturday, leaving the Bruins with only seven scholarship players. Wear is UCLA's third leading scorer, averaging 12.2 points per game.

It's all in the cards. UCLA will experiment with placards, featuring random photographs, to signal plays and formations. Oregon pioneered the technique. “If it can help us with our substitution, speed up our operation on offense, then we're going to do it,” Bruins Coach Jim Mora said. Mora added that there have not been problems in that area, but “we're trying to get better.” UCLA fans can look for cards this week that have, among other things, Eric Cartman from “South Park,” former Bruins Maurice Jones-Drew and Troy Aikman, the In-N-Out Burger logo and a banana.

Guard Jerime Anderson was arrested for misdemeanor theft in August, Reeves Nelson, the Bruins' top player, was dismissed from the team in December and a Sports Illustrated story portrayed Howland as having lost control of his team. “Ben understands full well that the management and oversight of the program needs improvement,” Guerrero said.
