Norman Powell, a freshman guard for the struggling UCLA basketball team, suffered an allergic reaction during practice Wednesday and was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center according to a release from the school. Powell will be kept overnight for observation and will not practice Thursday. Powell is averaging 4.6 points a game and has played in all seven of UCLA's games. The Bruins (2-5) play Saturday against Pennsylvania at Honda Center. They are already missing last year's leading scorer and rebounder, Reeves Nelson, who is currently serving his second suspension of this season for issues regarding his conduct while with the team. On Tuesday, Coach Ben Howland had said it was unlikely Nelson would be reinstated before Saturday's game and would not be practicing with the team unless he was reinstated. -- Diane Pucin
