UCLA Bruins redshirt senior guard Prince Ali is listed as questionable for Thursday night’s home matchup with the Arizona State Sun Devils. He sat out each of the past two games dealing with back spasms.

Ali is averaging 19.3 minutes per game this season for UCLA and has suited up for 25 games. He is averaging 7.1 points, 2.4 rebounds and one assist per matchup. He’s had an up-and-down career, with his defense coming and going at times, but his signature moment came his freshman year five seasons ago. It’s one that remains embedded in the minds of Bruins fans in their win over top-ranked Kentucky.

UCLA is going into Thursday night’s matchup as 3.5-point favorites with the over/under set at 141.5. Arizona State is a likely NCAA Tournament team at this point, while UCLA is battling on the bubble.
