Basketball: UCLA’s Lee won’t miss time with knee

UCLA junior guard Malcolm Lee has a slight cartilage tear in his left knee, but said he does not expect to miss any playing time.

Lee, one of three Bruins named to the all-Pac-10 team on Monday, injured the knee Saturday during UCLA’s overtime victory at Washington State.

The Bruins open Pac-10 tournament play Thursday against the winner of Wednesday’s game between Oregon and Arizona State.

Basketball: UW’s Overton charged, suspended

Washington senior guard Venoy Overton was charged on Tuesday with providing alcohol to a minor and immediately suspended by the team from playing in the Pac-10 tournament.
