Bozeman To Start Against Beavers

UCLA coach Ben Howland called Cedric Bozeman's 18 minutes "invaluable" in the win against Oregon, despite the senior wing scoring just three points, grabbing only two rebounds and dishing out one assist.

It was because Bozeman's return from a left shoulder injury allowed leading scorer and top defender Arron Afflalo to play 31 minutes, his lowest total since before Bozeman was injured, and also took pressure off freshman Michael Roll.

In fact, point guard Jordan Farmar said having Bozeman back "helps everything."

Because of those factors, Howland said Bozeman will start at wing in place of Roll today, when No. 17 UCLA visits Oregon State. L.A. Daily News
