GAME OF THE WEEK: Southern California at No. 6 UCLA, Saturday. The Trojans (21-5, 8-5 Pac-12) won the first meeting between the Southern California rivals 84-76 on Jan. 25 behind Shaqquan Aaron’s 23 points. The Bruins (23-3, 10-3 Pac-12) have not lost since, winning four straight, including last week’s 82-79 victory over then-No. 5 Oregon. USC is still in decent shape to make the NCAA Tournament, but a win over UCLA, which moved up four spots in this week’s poll, would certainly be a big boost to its resume.

“I hope we can focus on the season and what’s coming up next and whatever’s in store for this team,” Auriemma said. “Let’s get it over with and move onto the next thing which is more important in the big scheme of things for these players anyway. This 100-win streak isn’t theirs, but if they win a national championship — that’s all theirs.

“I feel bad having to release this information about my health in this manner prior to sharing it in person with so many personal friends, distant family, players and their families, past and present, and many of the Kansas State football family so close to our program,” he said. “But with so much talk presently out there, I certainly owe it to everyone to make them aware of my condition.”
