RECORD: 11-6 overall, 3-2 Pac-10
COMING UP: Today vs. UCLA, 6 p.m., FSN; Saturday vs. USC, 3 p.m., FSN
OUTLOOK: After a road sweep of the Oregon schools, ninth and 10th in the Pac-10 standings, a tougher test awaits the Cougars at home this weekend. UCLA is tied atop the conference with California and Washington, but is coming off a 61-58 overtime loss at home to Arizona State. The Bruins have won the last 15 times they’ve played in Beasley. Point guard Darren Collison is 10th in the conference in scoring (14.9 points per game) and second in assists (5.4). USC swept the Arizona schools last weekend, but leading scorer Dwight Lewis (15.8) might be a little hobbled this week after suffering an ankle sprain at Monday’s practice.
