Powell hospitalized with allergic reaction

UCLA freshman guard Norman Powell was rushed to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center emergency room on Wednesday after suffering an allergic reaction at practice.

The Scout.com four-star recruit was in stable condition as of Wednesday night and was scheduled to remain in the hospital overnight for observation.

Powell, who is not expected to practice today and will continue to be monitored, is averaging 4.6 points in 16.6 minutes per game for the Bruins, who play against Penn on Saturday at the Honda Center. Powell scored zero points in 15 minutes against Texas in a 69-59 loss last Saturday, but had a season-high 10 points in 23 minutes in a 62-39 UCLA win over Pepperdine on Nov. 28.

    This is the ONE guy that has the athleticism to become the go-to-guy this year. He also has the ability to guard the 2 OR 3. I hope this is minor and he gets better quickly.
