- It's always nice to go to Lahaina, but it's better to come back with some hardware. UCLA did just that as they won the EA Sports Maui Invitational by easily rolling past #19 Georgia Tech 88-73. Arron Afflalo had 19 points in the win, but sophomore Darren Collison was named the tournament MVP. The fifth-ranked Bruins were up by 22 points in the second half with 9:49 left to play.

- The Clip Show lost their first home game at the hands of Seattle who had a big night from Rashard Lewis who had a beastly double double of 35 points and 12 boards. Ray Allen had a quiet 23 points in the Sonics 95-85 victory over LA. Tim Thomas coming off the bench scored 13 in the third quarter and lead the team in scoring with 15 points. Elton was a horrendous 3 for 12 from the field and ended up with just 7 points.

- Teemu Selanne racked up his 500th goal in a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Colorado that ended in a shootout. Selanne is only the 36th player to reach the Hall of Fame worthy milestone.
