NO. 10 UCLA: Freshman JaRon Rush will be suspended for Saturday's Pac-10 opener against Arizona because he reported late from a holiday break and missed two practices as well as Tuesday's 92-67 victory over Loyola Marymount. "He told me he had been very homesick," said coach Steve Lavin, explaining that Rush had an extended Christmas visit with his family in Kansas City, Mo.
