Collison Creates First-Year Impact

Freshman Darren Collison has been a major contributor for the UCLA basketball team, averaging 19.2 minutes, 5.5 points and 3.1 assists off the bench. But neither Collison nor Bruins coach Ben Howland are surprised by his contribution because they both expected it.

Collison led the Eagles to last year's CIF-Southern Section Division I-AA championship, earning the divisional Player of the Year award. Instead of resting on his reputation, Collison spent his summer in the weight room adding muscle to his 6-foot, 155-pound frame and in the gym honing his skills. Inland Valley Daily Bulletin
