Travis Wear will sit out with a concussion when UCLA visits Arizona State tomorrow at 1 p.m. PT. The junior forward’s string of seven straight double-digit scoring games was cut short in a 87-73 win at Arizona Thursday night when he missed the second half after colliding with Wildcat forward Brandon Ashley.
His absence means freshman Tony Parker will almost certain play double-digit minutes for the second straight game, something he did once before in mid-December in against Texas and Prairie View A&M.
In Tucson, the 6-foot-9 center had six points, three rebounds and a block in 10 minutes while recording just one foul. His best play was a turnaround jumper with 6:48 left in the game; he drew a foul and converted the three-point play to give the Bruins a 63-55 lead.
