Anderson and Roll Return To Play Against Humboldt St.

By Bruin Basketball Report

UCLA Coach Ben Howland announced today both sophomore Jerime Anderson and senior Michael Roll will start tomorrow in the team's final exhibition game against Humboldt State.

Both players have practiced since last week and are ready to join in the action, although Howland cautioned both players may play limited minutes due to their overall conditioning.

Coach Howland confirmed freshman Tyler Honeycutt will be out at 3-4 weeks due to the stress reaction on his right tibia.  He felt Honeycutt had made great progress on the team in past practices and had already become one of the team's best passers.

With Honeycutt's injury, Howland indicated senior Nikola Dragovic may see more minutes at the small forward spot than anticipated.  Its a spot Dragovic has played most of his career at UCLA.

Freshman Brendan Lane is doubtful for tomorrow's game.  Although Lane resumed practice last week, he woke up this morning with flu-like symptoms.

Tomorrow's game on Nov. 10 against the Humboldt State Lumberjacks starts at 7:30 PM at Pauley Pavilion.
