Yes I realize that the "Big Game" is the title for the Stanford vs. Cal match-up. But this game is biggest game of the year for Stanford and UCLA in basketball. It will go a long way to determine how good, or bad, these two teams really are. The game will be at 8:07 p.m. PST at the tiny and noisy Maples Pavilion. It will be broadcast on Fox Sports Net and Prime Ticket. The gametracker is here. UCLA has won the last three games in the series but is a 6.5 point underdog.

The Bruins Nation preview is here and the Stanford preview is here. The official preview is here. One quick important note:

BRUINS' INJURY REPORT
Junior guard De'End Parker has missed the last 10 games with patellar tendinitis and is out for the game against Stanford (Dec. 29). Senior point guard Lazeric Jones and freshman guardNorman Powell both suffered left ankle sprains yesterday (Dec. 27) in practice. However, both guards returned to practice on Dec. 28 and will play in the Pac-12 opener at Stanford on Dec. 29.

UCLA will need Jones and Powell to keep it going. On paper, UCLA has the advantage inside, Stanford has it outside. Should be a good game with late season intensity.

Go Bruins.
