    Pac-10 notes: Conference depleted by injuries

    Oregon sophomore guard Bryce Taylor, the team’s third-leading scorer, was “”banged up in practice”” Monday, Oregon head coach Ernie Kent said.

    “”We don’t quite know where he’s at for this weekend yet,”” Kent said.

    The Ducks play at Arizona tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. in McKale Center.

    Trojans’ Pruitt could be out for the year

    Southern California sophomore guard and leading scorer Gabe Pruitt could be done for the season after injuring himself on the last play of Monday’s practice.

    Pruitt, who banged knees with another USC player, will miss at least the next two games while being re-evaluated by the team’s medical personnel.

    USC head coach Tim Floyd said the injury did not look bad until the medical staff informed him otherwise.

    “”We thought he just bumped knees and he would be OK,”” Floyd said.

    According to Floyd, Pruitt went up for a layup and the impact from the hit made his kneecap go forward instead of backward, causing a cracked bone in his tibia.

    OSU’s Fontenot won’t make trip

    Oregon State head coach Jay John confirmed reports that senior point guard Jason Fontenet will not make the trip to the Arizona schools this week.

    “”Jason needs to reaffirm his commitment to the Oregon State basketball program,”” John told The Associated Press.

    Without the Arizona native, the Beavers will play the Wildcats Saturday at 11:30 a.m. in McKale Center.
