With both Reeves Nelson and Brendan Lane out for tonight's game, coach Ben Howland has gone with a smaller lineup featuring guard Jerime Anderson.
It has worked so far, as UCLA leads Oregon State 36-26 at the half.
Freshman Tyler Honeycutt, who has moved over to the power forward spot, leads all scorers with 13 points.
With Nelson sidelined, there has not been much of a presence inside. UCLA has tried to feed the ball into sophomore J'mison Morgan, but he missed his two easiest shots -- a dunk being one of them. Senior Nikola Dragovic has shied away from the paint.
Oregon State holds a 17-11 edge in rebounding.
