Successful young coaches Nikki Caldwell and Joanne Boyle face off in a critcal early season matchup

The Bears will have their hands full with one of the many up-and-coming teams in the Pac-10.  UCLA is coming off a road sweep of the Arizona schools, highlighted by an impressive 18 point win over ASU.  UCLA controlled the team many believed to be the 2nd best team in the conference from start to finish, and have placed themselves firmly in the Pac-10 race.  Bruinsnation is understandably excited about Coach Caldwell and UCLA's hot start.

UCLA is a very balanced team, with four players averaging between 10 and 13 points per game.  6'1'' Freshman Markel Walker has been the Bruin's top performer with 12.9 points per game and 8.5 rebounds per game.  Juniors Dorrena Campell and Darxia Morris handle most of the ball handling and average 10 and 11 points per game respectively.  Recent Rutgers transfer Jasmine Dixon has only played in 6 games for UCLA but is already putting up nearly 13 points and 8 rebounds a game.

The LA road trip is a critical point in the season for Cal.  3 straight road games against 3 of the better teams in the conference is a dangerous way to start the season, but strong performances and 2 wins in LA could be a huge boost for a young team.  GO BEARS!
