Aboya is expected to practice
UCLA Coach Ben Howland said that backup center Alfred Aboya, who sat out the Bruins’ loss to Washington on Saturday because of a sore left knee, is expected to participate in practice today and play in UCLA’s Pacific Life Pacific 10 Conference tournament opener against the winner of Wednesday’s game between California and Oregon State.
Arron Afflalo has scored in double figures in 29 consecutive games and is the leading active scorer in the Pac-10 with 1,447 points.
The junior guard is No. 21 on UCLA’s career list, 11 behind Dijon Thompson, 12 behind Earl Watson and 14 behind Pooh Richardson.
After those, the next target would be Tyus Edney, who scored 1,515 points.
Don MacLean, who played four seasons, is the program’s career leader, with 2,608 points.
