BRUIN INJURY REPORT
Freshman forward Tyler Honeycutt has missed the first six games with a stress reaction in his right tibia (as announced on Nov. 8, 2009). He should be able to play this week against No. 1 Kansas. Freshman forward/center Reeves Nelson missed two practices this week with a hyperextended right knee but should be available for Sunday's game against the Jayhawks.

SERIES VERSUS KANSAS
This is the 15th meeting between the Kansas Jayhawks and UCLA with the Bruins leading the series 10-4. UCLA won the last meeting, a 68-55 win in an NCAA Regional Final on Mar. 24, 2007. Senior guard Michael Roll and senior forward James Keefe are the only two current Bruins that played in that contest. Roll played nine minutes scoring three points and grabbling one rebound. Keefe just played in one minute of the second half without recording any statistics. UCLA is 4-1 all-time against KU at home and 2-1 in Pauley Pavilion. UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland is 1-0 against Kansas.

UCLA VS. NO. 1
UCLA sports an overall record of 10-18 (.357) all-time against teams that are ranked No. 1 in the Associated Press Poll. Four of those wins have come since 2000 (last 11 seasons). One of those wins was when 11th-ranked UCLA handed No. 1 Kansas an 87-77 defeat in Pauley Pavilion on Jan. 12, 2002. The last time UCLA faced a No. 1 team was in the 73-60 loss at home to Stanford (Feb. 21, 2004). The last time the Bruins beat a No. 1 team was in the 96-89 overtime victory over Arizona in the quarterfinals in the Pac-10 Tournament (Mar. 13, 2003).
