BRUIN INJURY REPORT
Junior forward/center Alfred Aboya, who suffered a fractured orbital floor of his right eye in the Bruins' win over Yale (Nov. 23), has played the last two games.
All-American point guard Darren Collison saw his first action of the year against George Washington (Nov. 28) and made his first start of the season against Texas (Dec. 2) after spraining his left knee (MCL) in the exhibition game against Azusa Pacific (Nov. 2).
Junior guard Michael Roll worked out on Nov. 27 with contact for the first time since rupturing his plantar fascia in his left foot during practice on Nov. 3. He played five minutes of the Texas game (Dec. 2).
Sophomore forward James Keefe practiced for the first time with contact this year on Dec. 4 after having surgery on Aug. 10 to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He is doubtful for the Davidson game.
UCLA sports a national ranking of No. 8 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll and a No. 7 ranking in the Associated Press poll. While Davidson isn't ranked in the Top 25 in either poll, the Wildcats did receive eight votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, which would rank them 35th.
SERIES VS. DAVIDSON
This is just the second meeting between UCLA and Davidson with the Bruins winning the only other meeting 91-64 in Pauley Pavilion on Jan. 3, 1975. The then third-ranked Bruins went on to win their 10th NCAA Championship in 12 years with a 28-3 record.
