Tonight's game might just be the biggest college basketball game of the season when #4 hosts #5.

Everyone is wondering: How is Zo's ankle?

It's finally gameday!

It's put-up-or-shut-up time for UCLA. The Bruins have to go out tonight and prove what they are made of. They are going into an opponent's building facing a tough crowd and UCLA needs to quiet them down from the opening tip.

Speaking of putting up or shutting up, three members of the Cleveland Cavaliers who happen to be Arizona alums were giving Kevin Love a hard time this morning during a segment that aired on ESPN's College Gameday.

It all seemed to be in good fun, but let's face it...no Bruin wants Kevin to have to pay off this bet if it was legit. But, it sure would be fun to have to watch those former Wildcats to have to wear a Bruin jersey, wouldn't it?

The question that everyone wants an answer to seems to be: How is Zo's ankle? Well, in the left picture from the UCLA Men's Basketball twitter account, it looks like his ankle has been well-taped.

Of course, that still doesn't tell us much. So, let's look at some footage from after the pre-game shootaround. Here's Zo making a three from the Grand Canyon.

And, one more tweet for good measure. This shows you the tape job and the fact that he seems to be fine.

OK, I lied. There's one more tweet that needs to be shared.

This season, we are proud to, again, have today's audio feed for everyone who opts to use the Tune In player embedded below. For optimum results, start the audio feed then pause your DVR and sync them up together so you don't have to listen to Dan Shulman and Jay Bilas from the ESPN broadcast team.
