Pac-10 Picks; Showdown in LA between Arizona and UCLA

After 46 years, what a way for old Pauley Pavillion to go out. The UCLA Bruins play their final home game this afternoon and hope to return in 2012 after an 18-month renovation project.
The Bruins also host No. 10 Arizona in a nationally televised game on FSN with the chance of moving into a first-place tie in the Pac-10 standings. Needless to say, emotions will run high in Westwood today.
The Los Angeles Times reports UCLA is breaking out retro uniforms from the 1963-64 team, the first to win a national title under John Wooden.
Everyone in the Pac-10 is going to watch this game, particularly the Huskies. Coach Lorenzo Romar didn’t say who he was rooting for, but Isaiah Thomas made no bones about his allegiance.
“I’m rooting for UCLA,” he said. “Until they come here.”
The Huskies are still alive in the Pac-10 regular-season title race, but they’re two games behind the Wildcats and one game behind the Bruins with three games remaining for everyone.
Today’s games (all times Pacific).
No. 10 Arizona at UCLA, 1 p.m. (FSN)
California at Oregon State, 3 p.m. (FSN NW)
Stanford at Oregon, 3 p.m.
