The USC Trojans (11-9, 3-4 Pac-10) will visit the hated in city rival UCLA Bruins (13-6, 5-2 Pac-10) on Wednesday at 11:00pm ET. Pauley Pavilion will be the venue for the next chapter in this local rivalry. UCLA has recovered from four consecutive early season losses to be tied for second place in the Pac-10, one game behind #17 Washington. Reeves Nelson and Tyler Honeycutt lead the Bruins, along with three other players who average double figures in scoring. 6’10 junior forward Nikola Vucevic heads up the Trojans attack, leading the team in both scoring (16.1 ppg), rebounding (10 rpg) and blocked shots (1.5 bpg). It is going to take a big game from Nikola in order for the Trojans to compete under new coach Kevin O’Neill.
