The UCLA Bruins look for a weekend sweep at home on Saturday afternoon as they host the tied-for-first-place California Golden Bears. Here are the relevant details of this Pac-12 Conference college basketball battle.
Records: UCLA (14-10, 7-5 in Pac-12); California (19-6, 9-3)
Location: Los Angeles Sports Arena
Time: 1 p.m. PST
TV: Prime Ticket, with Steve Physioc on play-by-play, Marques Johnson as color analyst, and Rebecca Haarlow reporting from the sideline.
Streaking: UCLA, playing without a true home this season as Pauley Pavilion gets renovated, started their season with three losses in their first four home games. But they have turned things around and have won 10 straight home games.
Series History: The Bruins lead the all-time series with Cal 132-99, and have won six of their last 10 meetings. Cal beat UCLA 85-69 at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley on December 31.
Back In Contention: If the Bruins win at home on Saturday, and Washington loses at Oregon State on Sunday, don't look now but UCLA would only be one game out of first place in the Pac-12.
Milestones: With a win on Saturday against the Bruins, Cal would capture their first four-game season sweep of UCLA and USC since the 1958-1959 season. In addition, it would give Cal 20 wins on the season for the third time in four seasons under head coach Mike Montgomery.
