Up and down is what the Bruin faithful has gotten used to with this year's UCLA team and it's what the team delivered one again. UCLA did just enough to beat Stanford, then just wasn't good enough to beat Stanford. Because the Pac-10 is so pathetic though, the Bruins are still in a second place tie and only a game out of first place. That makes this week's game yet another big one.
Last time the Bruins played USC, they were thoroughly embarrassed. The Trojans came in and did everything UCLA used to do under Coach Howland, while the Bruins curled like a scared little cat. Now UCLA will head across town to play USC at Galen Center and the Trojans have to be the favorites to beat UCLA at Galen Center for the first time since the arena opened. We'll recap the last weekend and preview the Bruins' upcoming trip across town at 6 pm PST on the BN basketball podcast.
