Rain, rain, go away

UCLA and Washington are less than 15 minutes from tipping off at Pauley Pavilion. Both teams have hit the floor for pregame warmups.

Question is, where are the fans?

The sparse showing is perhaps explained because of the rainy weather across Southern California. Or perhaps it's a subtle stand taken by fans following the Bruins' embarrassing 21-point loss to USC last Saturday.

In other news, sophomore point guard Jerime Anderson (hip flexor) is not in uniform for tonight's game. Anderson was injured in a practice leading up the USC game. He was limited to nine minutes off the bench Saturday.

That means sophomore Malcolm Lee will primarily play point guard tonight, but expect redshirt junior Mustafa Abdul-Hamid to see considerable minutes too.
