When UCLA faces Oregon tonight at 7:30 at Pauley Pavilion, it will be a matchup of two of the Pac-10's hottest teams.
The Bruins (15-7, 7-3) have won seven of their last eight games and are in second place in the conference. Oregon (12-11, 5-6) has won four of its last five, including an 81-76 victory over conference title favorite Washington last week.
The game will be televised by Prime Ticket.
The Ducks will be a different team than the one UCLA faced in Eugene on Jan. 15, mostly because leading scorer and rebounder Joevan Catron will be in the lineup. Catron missed the UCLA game at Oregon with a strained calf, but the 6-6, 245-pound forward has averaged 18.5 points and eight rebounds over the last four games.
He was named the Pac-10 player of the week last week after the Ducks swept Washington and Washington State. Here, UCLA coach Ben Howland and some of the Bruins discuss the new challenge with Catron in the lineup and playing against a hot Oregon squad:
