UCLA’s Bozeman expected to miss season

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – UCLA senior point guard Cedric Bozeman tore
a knee ligament in practice Thursday and is expected to miss the entire

Test results on Bozeman taken Friday showed he has a torn anterior cruciate
ligament in his right knee.

Injuries have slowed Bozeman over his first two seasons before being injury-
free last season, when he was the only Bruin to start all 28 games. He
averaged 7.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and led the Pac-10 with 5.5 assists as UCLA
posted just its second consecutive losing season in 62 years.

Bozeman had been UCLA’s starting point guard for three seasons, although
freshman Jordan Farmar was expected to challenge him for the job. The 6-foot-2
Farmar is now likely guaranteed a starting role when the Bruins open the
season November 20 against Chicago State.
