USC Plays at UCLA in Key Women’s Game

Trying to stave off streaking Stanford, Pacific 10 Conference leader USC will play UCLA tonight at 7 in a women’s basketball game at Pauley Pavilion.

Coach Cheryl Miller’s Trojans, 20-3 overall and 13-2 in the conference, have three games left and are being hotly pursued by the Cardinal (19-5, 12-3) and Oregon (18-6, 12-3).

The Bruins (15-9, 10-5) will be without team leader Natalie Williams, who went out with a season-ending knee injury in the first half last Saturday at Stanford.
