Welcome to Hec Ed. We’re about to get started here with the Bruins and the Huskies. It’s Senior Morning, thanks to the weird start time to accommodate television. Game thread starts on the jump:
UCLA coach Ben Howland said that Travis Wear, who has a bum ankle, will start Saturday morning for the Bruins.
