UCLA plays the Penn Quakers tonight at the Honda Center on Fox Sports West at 4:03 p.m. PST. Thanks to Chianti Dan we have played all our "home" games to this point at the ancient, decrepit Sports Arena, where the lights go out during a game. Hopefully this new change of scenery will do UCLA some good as it turns over a new leaf without Reeves Nelson.

The official UCLA preview is here. The Bruins will again be without De'End Parker. Norman Powell is only probable for the game as he had an allegoric reaction to something he ate and was hospitalized December 7-8. Lazeric Jones is also banged up but will play.

The Penn Quakers preview is here. They have a real star in PG Zack Rosen. He entered the week fourth nationally in three-point field goal percentage (.585); ninth in three-point field goals per game (3.4); 12th in points per game (21.3); 37th in field goal percentage (.573); 39th in free-throw percentage (.897); and 45th in assists per game (5.7).

Go Bruins.
