COLLEGE

* Game 1: Pepperdine (5-1) vs. No. 8 Kansas (4-0), 2:30 p.m.

This is a rematch of last December's 96-83 Jayhawk victory at Allen Fieldhouse, when then-senior Wave guard Gerald Brown scored 35 points, the most an opponent scored against Kansas all season. But the Jayhawks are a very different team after losing center Raef LaFrentz and swingman Paul Pierce to the locked-out NBA. Kansas, which plays defending national champion Kentucky in the Great Eight on Tuesday, has been led in the early-going this season by sophomores--forward Kenny Gregory and center Eric Chenowith, from Villa Park. Kansas leads the series, 6-1, having won six straight from the Waves after losing at Malibu, 96-89, in December 1979.

* Game 2: No. 10 UCLA (2-2) vs. No. 12 Oklahoma State (4-0), 4:30 p.m.

The Bruins' perfect 3-0 record in Wooden Classic appearances could be severely tested by an Oklahoma State team that returns four starters from last season's 22-7 club that lost to Duke in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Though the teams haven't played in a while, one Cowboy player is very familiar with UCLA is point guard Doug Gottlieb, who played at Tustin High and played against the Bruins when he was a Notre Dame starter in 1995-96 before transferring to Oklahoma State.
