There are games when UCLA guard Norman Powell becomes an ignition switch. The Bruins' game Saturday night against USC was one of those times.
To say UCLA was in a funk during the first half would be an insult to teams in funks. UCLA looked worn and beaten.
Powell stepped in and started the salvage operation that ended in an 83-73 Pac-12 Conference victory for the Bruins at...

Dunks are just awesome. A good dunk sets the tone and definitely establishes dominance. Take this dunk by UCLA's Norman Powell from Thursday night. Not only does he slam it home over a much bigger player in Richard Amardi, but he knocks him down in the process and--here's the best part--stands over him just to make sure there is no doubt who the man is.That is the definition...
UCLA junior guard Norman Powell threw down a huge posterizing dunk over Oregon forward Richard Amardi in Pac-12 hoops action Thursday night at Matthew Knight Arena:
Just your usual ‘and one’ (Powell would make the free throw too). Powell finished the game with 17 points, and the Bruins came away with a 70-68 conference victory over the Ducks on the road.
UCLA and Oregon are currently engaged in a back-and-forth battle, with the Ducks leading the Bruins in Eugene 66-65. Guard Norman Powell gave UCLA a nine point lead with this monster dunk in transition over Oregon’s Richard Armadi in transition, which led to a three point play.
Powell has had a great second half, and currently leads UCLA with 17 points, but Oregon has hit a...

LOS ANGELES -- There's "Bowlegs" and "Spider-man" and a host of other nicknames in the UCLA locker room that the public have yet to learn.
Such is the life under new head coach Steve Alford.
Norman Powell has Alford to thank for "Bowlegs" and Jordan Adams for "Spider-man."
It's light. It's playful. It's personal. It'...
UCLA got a big win over No. 11 Arizona last night behind the efforts of Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson. But it was a reserve guard named Norman Powell who may have had the game-defining moment.
Powell’s dunk was his only bucket of the game – I’d say he made the most of his contributions.
All coaches expect adversity during the course of a season, and welcome it as well. However through 12 games, the 2011-12 season, UCLAs Ben Howland has had enough.
Wed like to get rid of the adversity, said Howland. Weve had our fair share.
